Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My reason for voting against this bill is this. The Minister of Justice said that these people had spent their money and that the custom of the house was to have such bills read the second time and sent to the committee on banking and commerce to be reviewed, so that its promoters might have an opportunity .to appear and state their case. But this is my objection-and I think I am in order in the statement I am about to make. How can I vote either for or against a bill I have never seen? Yet this house votes against the principle of allowing bills to be introduced. I do not see any consistency in such action.
