Sir WILFRID LAURIER.

I do not agree at all with the view of my hon. friend (Mr. Foster). The Yukon Council is an elective body, not a nominative body, as it was a few years ago. It has pleased the people of the Yukon to elect the council, and the council have come to this conclusion. If it was a body independent of our control, I could appreciate the objection of my hon. friend. But this is now an elective body, and therefore they carry with them the will of the people of the Yukon.

Topic:   QUESTIONS.
Subtopic:   YUKON-REPEAL OF BEER IMPORT TAX.
