My hon. friend's information was certainly very bad. In my first election in Burrard, the returning officer was not able even in a by-election to get the ballot boxes into the northern part of the riding, which is now Comox-Atlin until four days after the date set for holding the elections. How could the ballot boxes leave say Nanaimo and get into Telegraph Creek and Atlin, which is 14 days in the winter, and at the same time get into the Squamish Yalley ? It is a phy-
sical impossibility to have the Comox-Atlin election at the same time as the others and the same thing applies to Yale-Cariboo.
