Mr. J. A. C. ETHIER (Laval-Two Mountains) :
In the statement which has just been made by the minister, I do not find any mention of farmers who were proprietors of farms before the proclamation was issued in October last, and who are now twenty-one or twenty-two years of age. Supposing a young man of twenty-two years of age is a proprietor of a farm and a farmer himself ; supposing he has 150 acres and a large stock and he is alone on the farm, is he bound, as coming under the regulations now in force? He is a bona fide farmer. What action should he take?
