Unionist

Mr. HOCKEN:

If all that can be said against the Bill has been stated by the hon. member for Gaspe (Mr. Lemieux) and the hon. member for Brome (Mr. Mc-Master), it impresses me that no case whatever has been made against it. Opponents of the Bill have practically conceded that its conditions are right, but they ask for delay and conciliation-that is the whole claim. I can tell my hon. friend from Gaspe that we people of Ontario are as jealous of our provincial rights as the people of any other province. The strongest fights that have been made in favour of provincial rights have been made by the province of Ontario.
