March 2, 1927 (16th Parliament, 1st Session)


Joseph Henri Napoléon Bourassa



I do not like to interrupt any hon. member when he is making a speech in the chamber, but I understood we were discussing a motion with regard to the civil service of the federal government. I cannot in any way, directly or indirectly, see how it can be connected with a certain piece of legislation enacted by the province of Ontario, called regulation 17. Without a complete transformation of the question before the House, and a departure from debate, I do not see how the question can be discussed under this resolution.
