Mr. MACDONALD (Pictou) :
If my hon. friend will again permit me, the petitioners, representing, as they alleged, sixty thousand depositors, stated that if these allegations were true it would become the duty of the government to reimburse the depositors. The government have isued a commission for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not the allegations are true.
