MACDONELL (South Toronto) moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 22) to amend the Dominion Elections Act. He said: The Bill is a repetition of a Bill that I introduced last session. It has two provisions. One is to dispense with the $200 deposit now necessary to be made by a candidate. The other asks that the general election day throughout Canada be made a public holiday.
