Mr. CARVELL.

Yes, it is a growing time on the part of the hon. member for Simcoe, I think, and of some other hon. gentlemen who have grown so rapidly in their ideas of the preservation of natural resources since Bill (No. 118) passed the House. However, that is a matter for them to answer. But, it seems to me this Bill has been discussed pretty thoroughly, and my hon. friends opposite have kept as far away from the real principle of the Bill as they could. I hope that possibly this reminder may awaken them to the true import of the Bill, and that they will devote their attention for a few moments to the Bill itself, and not to some fanciful grievance which they have conjured up in their own mind. I am satisfied if they take that advice they will not 'see anything wrong in allowing this Bill to pass, and let us proceed to other Bills of as much importance as this.

Topic:   PRIVATE BILLS.
