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.

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.

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.

I agree with the' hon. Solicitor General (Mr. Bureau). I do not believe that the Bill is one over which we have jurisdiction. According to the British North America Act, matters regarding civil rights are decided exclusively by the provincial legislatures. We in Quebec have _ no sympathy at all with this kind of legislation. I have discussed the proposition with several lawyers of the Montreal bar and every one of them has declared himself against it. Upon principle I should say that we should oppose this Bill. The hon. member has referred to legislation of a similar character which was passed by this parliament some years ago. Even if that was done I do not believe that is a good reason why we should do the same thing to-day. If I had been a member of the House at the time I should not only have voted against the Bill but should have opposed it to the fullest extent. We in Quebec, and in this, I think we are like the people of every other province, are jealous of our provincial rights, and this is a matter to be dealt with only toy the legislatures. I do not believe that it will affect us very much in our province. When a mortgage is due the debtor has a perfect right to pay at any time by paying tire interest which has been agreed upon in the deed, but of course under this Bill it is stated that after the mortgage is due the debtor will have no right to pay the mortgage, that he is bound to keep it upon his farm or his house for a longer period, that he is not at liberty to pay it off. In our province we are not confronted with that state of affairs.
