Unionist

Mr. DAVIS:

As I purpose supporting
the Bill and yet do not want to leave myself in the position of seeming to he hoodwinked by what has been going on with regard to the matter, I thought I would make a few remarks. First of all, it is a fact that the friends of Mr. Backus in the Ontario Legislature were not the Drury Government, but the combination of Liberals and Conservatives who defeated this concurrent legislation in that legislature. The fact is that the Conservatives put their men up to oppose that legislation, knowing what this Government would do with regard to it.
IVJr. MEIGHEN: Has Mr. Drury not a
majority in the Ontario House?
