Mr. NEILL:

They declared war the moment it favoured them.

Mr. A. W.. ROEBUCK (Trinity): I hone that the hon. member for Comox-Alberni (Mr. Neill) will not expect those who follow him in this debate to take part with him in his discussion of the Japanese question, and certainly not to follow him in some of his logic or attitude. It seems to me that the hon. member loses a little of the influence he might otherwise possess in this house and in the country by too evident a dislike for the subject of his remarks. What he fails to appreciate in the policy of the Prime Minister is that it is guided not by likes and dislikes. We all have a right to like whom we please; kissing goes by favour, but statesmanship is based not upon favour but upon justice. I caught the words from the hon. gentleman himself that the way to treat the oriental is with strict justice. Of course that is right. It is not whether we like the Japanese or dislike them; they are human beings and have certain rights, and those rights must be respected, not for their sakes but for our own sakes.

Mr. NEILL:

I have an amendment to this section, as follows:

That section 11 be amended by adding thereto as subsection 2 the following:

"Such regulations shall forthwith after approval by the governor in council be published in the Canada Gazette and shall be laid before parliament within fifteen days after they are made if parliament is then sitting, and, if not, then within fifteen days after the commencement of the next ensuing session."

The purpose of the amendment is to ensure that the regulations shall be published. Section 11 does not make provision for that. It provides only for the making of such regulations as may be necessary. But there will be no facility for the public to learn what has been passed.
