Hon. Mr. BUREAU :

I will take advantage of these two ot three minutes, to record my protest .against the Act which it is intended to impose on us and against the methods laid down. Yes, Mr. Chairman, I wish to strongly protest .against the Act which they intend to force through by means of a brutal majority, an Act to be forcibly passed under cover of the British flag. When I was a child, I have always been- taught that the British flag was the living emblem of liberty and of fair piety; neveT have I been taught that it could be used to cover, to shroud in- its folds the misdeeds of a Government, of an unprincipled and moribund Government.
