CON

Louis-Philippe Pelletier (Postmaster General)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. PELLETIER:

The parish of Laval-trie was taken from one county and put in another one.
The Indian village and 'reserve of Caughna-waga is transferred from the electoral district of Chateauguay to the electoral district of La Prairie and Napierville.
The parish of Lacolle shall be transferred from the electoral district of Mississquoi to St. Johns and Iberville. The parishes of Notre Dame de Stanbridge and Notre Dame des Anges de Stanbridge shall be transferred from St. Johns and Iberville to Missisquoi.
That is another one. There is a case in point and my right hon. friend will remember that this was done in order to try and defeat the Conservative candidate in Bagot.

The parish of St. Pie which gives a majority of 200, was taken from the county of Rouville, where the Liberal majority was supposed to be all right, and transferred to Bagot in order to make sure of electing one of the supporters of my right hon. friend. The parish of St. Marcel was transferred from Bagot to Richelieu. The parish of Ste. Helene was transferred from Bagot to the district of Drummond and Arthabaska. Everybody knows why that was done. The parishes of St. Guillaume d'Upton and St. Bonaventure d'Upton were transferred from Drummond and Arthabaska to Yamaska. The parish of la Visitation de la Bienheureuse Vierge Marie was transferred from Drummond and Arthabaska to Yamaska. The parish of Ste. Flore was transferred from the district of Champlain to the district of Three Rivers and St. Maurice.
