Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta FINAL EDITION ,VOU.'MK XIV. TWELVE LKTIlBJlllXil', ALBERTA. Tl'ESDAV, FKM1UARY '22, 1921 NUMBER lu GOING UP AND COMING DOWN! Representation in Parliament i Will Be Cut Following the Next Census i WILL PROBABLY LOSE HALF A DOZEN SEATS i OTTAWA, Feb. Press.) effect of a possible further cur- tailing of the representation in the house of commons of the maritime provinces in the event of re-distribu- tion is engaging tho earnest attention of maritime members. In 1913 an amendment to the British North Am- erica Act provided tjirt the represen- tation in the comnUHTs should not drop below that of the representation in the senate. Both New Bruuswlclf and Nova Scotia are entitled to ten senalors'and Prince Edward Island to four. Under the last re-distribution New Brunswick was given 11 seats, Nova Scotia 1G and Prince Edward Island four and while the island province representation cannot be further cur- tailed, it is posiHtile that an increase i in the population of Quebec without a corresponding increase in New Bruns- wick and Nova Scotia may result in the first province losing" one repre- sentative and the latter sis. 'This would bring the total maritime repre- sentation down to 21 instead of 31 as at present. Quebec Gets 65 Quebec is entitled to sixty-five seats and is tho basis for the representation from tho other provinces. The unit in Quebec is now approximately one- member for every of the popu- lation, and if this increases to forty thousand as without a corresponding in the other provinces, the maritime representa- tion will, havo to come down. Ob- servers state that iu addition to tho natural increase jn the population of Quebec, many natives of that prov- ince, who amlgrated to the United Mtates have returned owing to the industrial depression in that coun- try. This would further swell the population. The same may also hold good- for the maritime residents who went south in search of better conditions, but the fact remains that judges of the situation believe that the mari- timcs have not kept pace with Que- bec in the matter of- population. It is not likely that maritime mem- bers will endeavor to further protect their representation by again asking, for yn amendment to tho B. N. A. Act this session. It Is felt that the situation will solve itself, and that while a few seats may he 'lost, that the maritime the nest parliament will be between i and SO. Western Unionists Caucus OTTAWA, Feb.
