Mr. KENNEDY (Glengarry and Stormont) :
I am not speaking with authority; I am just telling the minister what I think is likely to happen. Legislation of this kind was passed in the House about ten or eleven years ago in connection with the Farmers' Bank, I suppose for the same reason, namely, that the government of the day thought that the depositors of the Farmers' Bank had a moral claim on the country on account of the possibility of there having been some carelessness in the issuing of the treasury certificate at that time. Now, there was a great deal of hardship among the depositors of the Farmers' Bank, and the government of the day recognized that and recognized the state's responsibility. AVould the minister consider including in his resolution the depositors of the Farmers' Bank as well as of the Home Bank?
