Sir WILFRID LAURIER:

I affirm
here that all these parishes, with possibly the exception of Ste. Flore and St. Guillaume were transferred back to their proper places according to their county limits. Lavaltrie, which had been from 1854 part of Berthier was, by the Act of 1892, made a part of l'Assomption. St. Pie, which had been a part of Bagot was in 1892 put into the county of Rouville. All the changes of 1892 were put back to the counties to which they belonged with the possibly exception of Ste. Flore and St. Guillaume. In 1873 St. Guillaume was placed for judicial and also for local electoral purposes in the county of Yamaska. So that in mentioning all these changes, my hon. friend only affirms the principle which we stand for and which is the principle of adhering to municipal and county boundaries.
