Mr. HUGH H. McLEAN.
There is no doubt that the statements made there are correct. If they were not correct, why did not some of the gentlemen on the opposition side at that time get up and deny them? The statements were made on the floor of the House and were put in ' Hansard,' and have never been denied. I have made inquiries, and I find that these statements are absolutely correct. I defy any hon, gentleman of the opposition to say that the statement made by Mr. Bourassa as regards the action of Sir John Macdonald in 1885 was not correct.
