Mr. PRICE.

It is the principle of provincial rights. Why did not the minister accept a fair sugegstion and postpone this Bill until the plans, were here, so that we

might consider the matter from a business point of view.

Mr. PRICE.

Now, we have taken up a great deal of time, and I would draw the attention of my hon. friend the Minister of Finance (Mr. Fielding) to the situation. I think this is about the first time I have had the honour of addressing him. I feel a little diffident about it. At the same time, no one more thoroughly appreciates his bonhomie and good humor than I do. Now it seems to me we have been wasting a good deal of time.

Mr. PRICE.

Quite right. That is what we want to do. We have strong objections to this Bill-not so much to the Bill, perhaps, as to what goes with it. It seems to me it would be better in the interest of both sides, if you put this off until the next day for private Bills, and, in the meantime, let the information be laid before the House. We are prepared to take a proper view of the subject, and if we are to be defeated, as we believe we are, why, we shall be defeated. But would it not be better to make some arrangement and facilitate business? Of course, if the minister does not want to do that, we are ready to fight.

Mr. PRICE.

But whose fault is it? It is now a little after seven o'clock. I can say to the minister that if he wishes to go on, we can go on in this way until Saturday evening. But there is no sense in this sort of thing. We should act like business men and like representatives of the Canadian people.

Mr. PRICE.

It seems to me it is the Minister of Public Works and his supporters who are acting like children. This is a very serious Bill, there is an important principle involved in it and we are perfectly justified in lighting it.
