Arthur Samuel Goodeve

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GOODEVE.

Then, I will leave the discussion of that until we come to the section referred to. I consider it very important, if the minister so understands it, that the matter should be carefully considered in this House. Speaking for myself, I have very strong objections to leaving with the minister or the Governor in Council such powers as these. It is a great liberty for the minister to exercise, to say who shall and who shall not use the public domain for his individual advantage. What I claim is that regulations of that kind should be general and every man should have an equal right.
