Arthur Bliss Copp (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. COPP:

If my hon. friend will refer
to the explanatory note on the opposite page he will find the following:
Rule (6) of Schedule A to section 32 requires urban registrars to deliver or send copies of the preliminary
lists prepared by them "to each of the candidates upon nomination day".
That is the present act. The explanation continues:
Such preliminary lists are generally ready for delivery seme ten or twelve days earlier, but the rule was no doubt drafted in its present form on the assumption that before nomination day there was no definite information as to what candidates would be in the field. Provision, is, however made for early nomination and there is no reason why candidates actually nominated should not immediately receive their preliminary copies of the list.
The provision referred to is made under section 40 of the present act.
