Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Wediiesday, March 5,1913 THE LETHBRJtPGE ^�,AILY HERALD ft Hon. Mackenzie King Calli For Discussion of Navy Ifjppblem The following letter which appeaT-�ed In the Ottawa Free Press, written. hy Hon. W. L. M. King, Is wortby'ol! 'being read by everyone: Editor Free Press;-In ono of your .Conservative contemporaries 1 noticed that an account of a meeting of the Ottawa Reform Association held Wiednesday evening begins as follows: Tha cruel electorate may have deprived Hon. Mackenzie King of the opportunity to do It in the House of Commons, but that h� Is going to speak on the payal problem anyway' was evidenced iby his views on that subject expressed at a meeting at the Otta-wa Reform association's headquarters last night. To the reference to tlie personal Jncldeni; in connection with the gen-'cral election of 1,911 in this paragraph I. have no exception to take, but to -the point of view to "which the paragraph glvqs expression and which, unfortunately; la one too generally ac-iio�pted In regard to public affairs, I i^lShould like: to say jtist a word. The Inlplication; Is that merahe-rs of parliament are tlje only persons who rbave a riglit tp. speak on questions i^tfeotlng tHe government and prob-ilejns of a dountry. To my mind this At an altogether erroneous point of flliew, and 6ne the too ready aooept-'ancft of which, through apathy on the jpart of the general public, is respon-�'ulble for most of the errors in leglsla-:tlon, and such evils as arl&e through �Incompetent' and corrupt admlnlstra-Won. ;| A member 'Of"Parliament is In a .(position of'special privilege and ad-*ant^ye, but th^ position thus ac-�boxiei Ti^itn by no means rolleves every oltlMnv of. a country of a duty .Whlohi-be flW^fl to the state, which is ^ia 40>J)Ib utpnost to see that it Is tightly- governed, and to speak out !iafir}�pfi|y w^iere he believes excep-(.tlon |hould be taken to proposed acts I'ot' administration, or to a course of poljcy'Which, If persisted in, will '|>rove injurious to the welfare of the ]�duniry he loves. r i An Intelligent public opinion can., loply'ibe; forrapd throughvthe greatest iSreedora of (Uscugslon, and this la just 'AS necessary, If not more necessary, outside than within the halls of par-i^Jlarnqni!- . : V There ha* not been In the history |0t Canada 4inc^ Confederation a time iwhen; the need tor discussion as a '�means of onllehteiiing pU'blic opli\loi\,-jwas greater thftn'it is .at the presenliij jmomopt, In regard, to this very ques-'tlon which the above quoted para-gra'ph refers to as "the naval prob-ijam'.ir Hike Ull problems.of moretliaa, ^ordinary magnitude, Us full bearings fereittot -easily discernible,, and their plgnlflo'ftrioe ^tlH less easll? grks^ifetl? � TrSe^iVerape peVson'in Oanadfi:. to^ day who has given any thought to the ciuesilon Is-^ot 'the:oplnion that, parliament "Is dlso\ipsIng whether Canada Bhoul^ or should not help the Mother Cqimtpy beqaup^ ,pf ,an.�mergeney.and �whether this lielp should ,ta_k^ /the formpffft-contfjjutlon of three ba^ttle^ phlp; 'fti^'aioost^ of^f85,000,000, or whe^. jhflr(*Xfs*8UPV Should be expended on 0at{a^)aa,^ii^yal service, as unanlin' ourfly, tigreed'fto'^^by the ftousocif'bom?; m^B In'M^roh, 1909. .
