Mr. STACEY:

I deem it my duty to inform the hon. member that the Indians from British Columbia had gone home, and I fear the document he read was prepared by their counsel who remained. I fear that is the reason it is in the hands of the leader of the Opposition. The men who came from British Columbia were not brought here for the purpose of giving any evidence either for or against the Bill as such, as I tried to show a few moments ago. They were brought by the gentleman to whom I referred for a distinct and separate purpose by which he sought to undermine the whole principle of the Bill and the action of Parliament with reference to it. So I fear the effect of the petition which the leader of the Opposition read is very largely, if not entirely, nullified when it is borne in mind that the Indians themselves had gone home.
