Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

That being so, would not it be the proper thing to leave it as it is, without change-I submit that to the minister and to the house-and then the gentlemen and interests affected will have an opportunity to study the situation and be able to deal with it when this house is in committee on the act which will be introduced next year. I think this is a matter which transcends any political view, and when we approach it we should keep in mind that old maxim of the infallible justice of the crown. In view of these circumstances, I think the minister might leave that section just as it stands, having given to the house and to those interested a clear intimation of what may happen when the matter is further considered.
