May 5, 1930

Mr. N. M. YOUNG (Toronto Northeast) moved:

That the petition of the Calgary and Ferine Railway Company, of Calgary, Alta., praying for the passing of an act to extend the time within which to commence and complete the construction of their line of railway, which was presented to the house on the 9th ultimo, together with the report of the clerk of petitions thereon, be referred to the select standing committee on standing orders for the purpose of considering the suspension of standing order 92 in relation thereto.

He said: This matter is before the Senate

in the form of Bill L-2. The company is now in a position to go ahead with its work and desires to have this bill passed at the earliest possible moment. I do not believe the matter is contentious, but at this season of the year a delay of two weeks would be rather injurious to their operations. I have before me the consent of both the Canadian National Railways and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.

Mr. N. M. YOUNG (Toronto Northeast):

As the sponsor of this bill perhaps I should say a word or two. The evidence in support of this case has been understated. There is such a thing in law as res ipsa loquitur-the thing speaks for itself. This man had venereal disease, and no one would deny that that is a reason for divorce. As far as the children are concerned, whether this house has jurisdiction or not there is in the province where the petitioner resides jurisdiction to grant the custody of the children, and there are institutions to look after these' children if the

Procedure Respecting Divorce

parents are unable to dlo so. I do not think it becomes us to give any petitioner coming before this house more relief than is asked for. There is no relief asked for in this case so far as the children are concerned, and I am prepared to take the responsibility of saying that institutions in Ontario will provide sufficient protection for the children either at the behest of or in'spite of their parents.
