Mr. DUMAINE (Translation):

No government can impose its will and force the people to act according to its desires. In our country, according to the constitution, the people govern. We must as much as possible allow the people their freedom. If I am opposed to Bill No. 2, as presently submitted to this house, it is because the government wanted to impose its will on the people without consulting them. They want to create Conservative fiefs and Liberal fiefs. Mr. COMMONS

Redistribution-Mr. Duranleau

Chairman, we do not want Liberal fiefs in the province of Quebec, and we want Conservative fiefs still less. And I know that after the next elections few of my hon. friends opposite will return to the House of Commons.

Mr. DUMAINE (Translation):

And the

new county of Chapleau will have a population of only 21,000.

It is not necessary to throw a whole province into confusion in order to increase the population of one county and assure the election of a Conservative. These changes could have been effected very easily. The redrafting of the electoral map of the province of Quebec could have consisted in giving two additional counties to the city of Montreal. All the members of the Island of Montreal, Liberals as well as Conservatives, were agreeable to accept the addition of two counties only. Two counties could have been merged without trouble, Bagot and Yamaska, or Bagot and Shefford, or L'Islet and Mont-magny. The problem of redistribution would have been settled by merging a few counties. Our friends to the right did not face the question in that manner because they want to assure themselves of seats in the province of Quebec. The hon. Solicitor-General (Mr. Dupre) so stated in his speech the day before yesterday; he does not want a solid " bloc " in the province of Quebec any more. Well, Mr. Chairman, if the province of Quebec decides some day to elect a solid " bloc " to the House of Commons, it is not redistribution consummated by the Conservatives, to-day, that will prevent it from sending such a " bloc " to represent the ideas, ambitions and will of the people of that province.
