April 6, 1920 (13th Parliament, 4th Session)


John William Bell


I think under certain conditions we have power over municipalities just as we have power over individuals; but I do not think it is necessary to enter into a discussion of that constitutional question at present.

Therefore, I should say we are quite safe in leaving it as it is in that respect.

Topic:   THE POOD AND DRUGS ACT, 1920.
