Independent Conservative

Mr. GIRARD (translation):

Let us suppose a proclamation is issued during winter. As there is no possible means of communication with Clark City, on the island of Anticosti, it is therefore impossible to send them any news of this proclamation. Generally, there are between 600 and 1,000 men who work in the woods; these men come from almost everywhere and a large number of them -are from my district. I then understand, from the words of the hon. Minister of Justice, that this would he a case of impossibility, and there is no doing impossibilities.
Hon. 'Mr. DOHERTY (translation): I
understand that, if lit is impossible for those people to reach a tribunal, or for a tribunal to reach them, that is 'a case of impossibility.
