Sir Lomer Gouln promised at the outset that he would treat the quest-Ions assigned him carefully. It had been claimed that there was disloyalty In Mr. Francoeur'B motion. He thought that the charge of disloyalty was unjust. The proposal that a province should leave the pact was not new. Sir Lomer then recalled that on April 8, 1886, Hon. V?> S. Fielding proposed in the legislature of Nova Scotia a resolution that meant nothing less than the separation of that province from the Canadian federation. The province of Quebec went on record against conscription at the last election. That was sufficient. As to the contention of the opposition that he should have gone to Ottawa at the time of the adoption of conscription and protested, lie could say that, like Mr. Sauve, he left that duty to Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Sir Lomer said tjiat he could state his position quite frankly. He was in favor of the Canadian confederation. Taking into account the needs of the Dominion, the only mode of governing it was the federation method. When the conscription issue came up, said Sir Lomer, it became a crime for Quebec iod iscuss it and to vote against it.
