There are difficulties in the west. I hope for the consolidation of Canada, I deprecate every statement that is made by hon. gentlemen opposite or elsewhere which will have a tendency to separate the provinces or to create disunion. What we want is union, and if the present administration does what, for 15 years the late administration neglected to do, and cares for western interests, the west of Canada will not only be prosperous but will be contented. The troublesome conditions which now prevail in the west are largely the natural result and consequence of the neglect of western interest and western affairs by the late administration during the years of their power.
