Mr. RIVET.

I have an amendment to offer to section 4 of the Bill. The amendment is not important, and I understand the committee have power to accept it, waiving the rule. The effect of the amendment is to give the company power to connect its line with the Canadian Pacific railway and the Canadian Northern railway. The amendment provides:

Subject to the approval of the Commission the company may connect its line of railway with the Canadian Pacific railway and the Canadian Northern railway.

Mr. RIVET.

May I ask if the hon. member (Mr. Doherty), has received any protest from any military men in Montreal regarding the contemplated site of the new barracks, and if, in speaking as he does, he is expressing the views of these gentlemen ?

Mr. RIVET.

If there is an objection, of course I shall have to give notice of the amendment, and will ask the committee to report progress and ask leave to sit again.

Mr. RIVET.

Unless there is a clause in the deed which must be construed, as the Solicitor General says, as a penal clause, the debtor is at perfect liberty to pay off the mortgage at any time by simply jjaying the accrued interest from the time the mortgage is due until the day he pays it off. Such being the case, I say there is no justification for this parliament to obtain an end by invalid means which cannot be obtained in a direct manner. I think every legal mind will agree that we have no right to interfere with private contracts, contracts

that are made between individuals. Now, if we do interfere therewith, even though m an indirect way, we do that which we have no right to do. Since the principle is admitted that this is a matter under the jurisdiction of the provincial legislatures, T say we should not pass this kind of legislation. It is a bad principle, it is bad legislation, and we should leave the whole matter to be decided by the provincial legislatures. As a member of the bar of the province of Quebec, I should have to vote against that amendment.
