Some hon. MEMBERS

Huron.
Mr. MeALLISTER. There are two or three Hurons. Evidently the hon. gentleman does not represent the right Huron. The hon. member for Marquette (Mr. Roche) believed that Canada should give two Dreadoughts at once or the equivalent in money. So I could go on and read half a dozen more. But I have read enough, Mr. Speaker, to show you the diversity of opinion on the opposite side of the House. I can assure these hon. gentlemen that there is no diversity of opinion on this side. I would suggest that the hon. gentlemen go into caucus and to sing. that good old song:
Why do we wait, dear brothers?
Why do we wrangle so long?
If we don't get together in one policy, We'll be hungry ever so long.
But we on this side, join with sweet accord, under the wise and ever-seeing eye of the Prime Minister of the Dominion of Canada, in favour of a Canadian navy built in Canada; we are in favour of a Canadian navy, built in Canada by Canadian people; of a Canadian navy, built in Canada by Canadian people with Canadian money; of a Canadian navy, built in Canada by Canadian people with Canadian money, under local control in time of peace and imperial control in time of war.
