Unionist

Mr. LEVI THOMSON:

My right hon. friend is endeavouring to lead me away from what I was at. I have sometimes preached in this House the doctrine which
I have preached amongst the people at home and which has been favourably received there, namely, that when any question comes before this House, we must use our best judgment and vote on that question in the way we believe to be right, and let the consequences take care of themselves. When I voted with my right hon. friend on the question of conscription, I had not the slightest idea what the consequences might be. I believed my right hon. friend was right, and I voted with him regardless of the consequences.
