I rememoer well that the hon. member for North Toronto (Mr. Foster) at the very end of his speech, in a very milk and water way, said that if there should be an emergency he would agree to provide for it, and that he was sure hon. gentlemen on this side would stand by him in that proposition. But the hon. the leader of the opposition did not say anything at all about it, except that there should be a door left in the resolution which would enable us, if an emergency should arise, to come to the rescue of the mother country. Language to that effect is in the resolution which could be construed to give us the right to make that provision should an emergency arise.
