Topic:   EXTENSION OF THE TERM OF PARLIAMENT.

July 17, 1917

Mr. RICHARD BLAIN (Peel):

Mr. Speaker, I do not rise for the purpose of making a speech, but simply to make a statement in respect to the issue now before the House. I listened to the remarks of the right hon. the Prime Minister (Sir Robert Borden) this afternoon as he presented a request to the Parliament of Canada that the term of this Parliament should be extended for twelve months. I shall read the main part of the resolution:-

1.Notwithstanding anything in the British North America Act, 1867, or in any Act amending the same, or in any Order in Council, or terms or conditions of Union, made or approved under the said Act, or under any Act of the Canadian Parliament, the term of the Twelfth Parliament of Canada is hereby extended until the seventh day of October, 1918.'

I regard that as the only question before the House this evening, and no matter what hon. gentlemen opposite may say, no matter what efforts are made to becloud the issue, this House and the people of Canada understand that this is the issue before them now for consideration and settlement. I differ with my hon. friend, and I say that the hon. member for West Lambton (Mr. Pardee) does not speak for the people of the province of Ontario when he says that the

people of Ontario are in favour of a general election in war time.

Mr. BLAIN:

But it was found to be in the best interest for the prosecution of the war that they should not be continued as units, but rather that they should be 'broken up.
