Mr. CARVBLL:

I would like to go back to section 6, subsection (1). If my hon. friend would refer to the end of that subsection he will see it reads:

Or in any air service, or while acting as a war correspondent in connection with any war in which any military, naval or air forces of Canada are or have been serving.

I would move to amend the subsection by adding:

Provided that no such person shall he qualified to be enumerated os an elector or to vote at an election unless he has been for the period of one month a resident of the district in which the election is held.

That would be the whole electoral district -the county, or whatever it might be.

Mr. CARVELL:

If the hon. gentleman's contention was carried out, let us see where he would land. Suppose you reduce the time to the lowest possible minimum, say, one day's residence. You could easily bring in five hundred people into a constituency just before the election, and you can see what the effect would be. You must fix a term of residence; otherwise the law would be open to abuse.

Mr. CARVELL:

No time at all. Under the provincial law he can vote on producing the certificate transferring his vote from his former constituency.
