Sir LOMER GOUIN:
I may say that there is an agreement among the three parties, that is, the Canadian government, the province of Ontario, and the province of Manitoba, that when certain conditions have been fulfilled by the province of Ontario the province of Manitoba will be willing and will consent to the passing of this legislation.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
Has the hon. member the leave of the House to introduce said motion?
Some hon. members: Aye.
M'. SPEAKER: The rule goes on:
If objection is taken, the Speaker requests those members who support the motion to rise in their places and, if more than twenty members rise accordingly, the Speaker calls upon the member who has asked for leave.
I take it that more than twenty members said "Aye." The hon. gentleman may proceed.
