Mr. T. G. McBRIDE (Cariboo):

It is said that there has been no plebiscite in British Columbia on this question, but that is not correct. There was a plebiscite and it carried by the largest majority ever secured on any question voted upon by the people of that province. The people gave the government

control over the liquor question and unless this legislation is passed that government will not have that control. The provincial government wants this legislation enacted and the people want it.

Mr. McBRIDE:

The government of British Columbia represent the people of that province, and the leader of that government was down here and asking for this legislation. They seemed to think that unless this legislation passed they could not control liquor there as they would wish to. Why should we quibble over these things when the government which represents British Columbia ask for this legislation?
