Mr. MACKENZIE KING:
My hon. friend appeals to me in reference to this point. I may say that I do not agree that proportional representation will necessarily lead to group government; I am inclined to think as matters stand it would strengthen the traditional parties. Everyone elected under the system of proportional representation has to get a majority of the votes cast for the candidates entitled to election. I think the effect in our country would be quite the opposite of what my hon. friend expects.
