THE SENATE 18 GEO. V 



The Honourable the Speaker informed the Senate that he had received a 
communication from the Governor General s Secretary, as follows: 

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR GENERAL S SECRETARY, CANADA 

OTTAWA, January 18th, 1928. 

SIR, I have the honour to inform you that His Excellency the Governor 
General will proceed to the Senate Chamber to open the Session of the Dominion 
Parliament on Thursday, the 26th January, at three p.m. 

I have the honour to be, 

Sir, 
Your obedient servant, 

E. C. MIEVILLE, 

Secretary to the Governor General. 
The Honourable 

The Speaker of the Senate, 
Ottawa. 

Ordered, That the same do lie on the Table. 
The Senate was adjourned during pleasure. 

After a while, His Excellency the Governor General having come, and 
being seated on the Throne, 

The Honourable the Speaker commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black 
Rod to proceed to the House of Commons and acquaint that House that, 

It is His Excellency the Governor General s pleasure that they attend him 
immediately in the Senate Chamber. 

Who being come, with their Speaker, 

His Excellency the Governor General was pleased to open the Session by 
a Gracious Speech to both Houses, as follows: 

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 

It affords me much pleasure to meet you at the commencement of another 
session of Parliament and to be able to congratulate you upon the marked 
prosperity of the country. The volume of trade and of building construction, 
the growth in employment, the increased railway receipts, the expanding 
revenues, and business conditions generally, all bear testimony to a sound 
economic development which promises much in the way of substantial progress. 

The celebrations of the Sixtieth Anniversary of Confederation, held dur 
ing the past summer, were of a memorable character. They evoked in all 
parts of the Dominion a spirit of national pride and patriotism. Related to 
the commemoration, and outstanding among the events of the year, was the 
visit of Their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales and Prince George, and 
the Prime Minister of Great Britain. The welcome everywhere accorded the 
representatives of the Royal Family and the representative of the British 
Parliament evidenced the strength of the ties which unite in a common 
allegiance the members of the British Commonwealth of Nations. 



A.D. 1928 26TH JANUARY 



Striking recognition has been accorded Canada s position in the League 
of Nations through the selection of Canada by the Assembly to a non-per 
manent seat on the Council of the League. 

As contemplated by the conclusions of the Imperial Conference oi_ 1 
provision was made on 1st July for direct communication between His Majestys 
Government in Canada and His Majesty s other Governments of the British 
Empire. The further implementing of these conclusions which aim at more 
effective consultation through personal contact by the appointment to Canada 
of a representative of His Majesty s Government in Great Britain is being dis 
cussed between the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs in Great Britain, 
who is at present in Canada, and members of my Government. By agree 
ment between the Governments of France and Canada and the Governments 
of Japan and Canada it is proposed that each of these countries shall be 
represented in the other by a Minister Plenipotentiary. 

Following the announcement made during the last Session of Parliament, 
a Conference was convened at Ottawa in November between the Dominion 
Government and the Governments of the Provinces of Canada. It is the 
opinion of my advisers that this Conference proved of the utmost value in 
facilitating a full and free exchange of views between the participating Gov 
ernments on problems of mutual interest and concern. Your attention will be 
invited during the present Session to some of the more important matters dis 
cussed at the Conference. 

As a result of the Dominion-Provincial Conference, my advisers have j 
decided, pending a complete revision of the financial arrangements as con 
templated by the Duncan Report, to recommend the continuance to the 
Maritime Provinces of the money grants made at the last session. In the 
light of the discussions at the Conference, my Ministers are continuing nego 
tiations with the Prairie Provinces for the return of their natural resources 
and are giving consideration to the restoration to the Province of British 
Columbia of the lands of the railway belt and the Peace River block. Consider 
ation is also being given to the railway problems of the several provinces, as 
outlined at the Conference. 

The work of reconditioning that portion of the Hudson Bay railway 
previously constructed has been finished. After most careful examination 
and consideration, and upon the best advice obtainable, Churchill has been 
selected as the ocean terminus of the Bay route. A contract has been let for 
the grading and bridging of the railway extension to Churchill and preparations 
looking to the establishment of the necessary harbour works there are well 
advanced. 

There has been a substantial increase in the number of British immigrants 
as well as in the number of immigrants of a suitable type from the continent 
of Europe. Steps have been taken towards closer co-operation with the Provin 
cial Governments in land settlement, placement and supervisory work. Several 
provincial centres have already been established for the reception and dis 
tribution of British youths for agricultural work, and a constructive settlement 
scheme has been put into force for settlers of this class. 

The opening of new territory by the construction of branch lines of railway 
is proceeding rapidly, and is providing wider opportunities for settlement. 

Harbour Commissions have been established at the ports of St. John and 
Halifax. This, it is expected, will facilitate and expand the movement of traffic 
through Atlantic seaports. The volume of trade at other Canadian ports during 
the past season has increased. In grain shipments, the Port of Montreal attained 
a pre-eminent position among world ocean ports. 

Much progress has been made in the development of aviation in the 
Dominion. An organization has been established for the administration of 
S H 



THE SENATE 18 GEO. V 



civil aviation, distinct from that of "the Air Force. To assist in the development 
of transoceanic air routes, a site for an airship base has been purchased near 
Montreal. An airship mooring tower will be erected and a public air terminal 
for aeroplanes provided. 

In the postal service the year has been marked by the inauguration of an 
air mail service between Rimouski and Montreal. 

Satisfactory progress has been made in the organization of the Department 
of National Revenue. The final report of the Royal Commission on Customs 
11 nd Excise will be presented immediately for your consideration, and legislation 
billed upon the report will be introduced. 

It is proposed to amalgamate the Departments of Health and Soldiers 
Civil Re-establishment in a single department of National Health and Veterans 
Welfare. 

A proclamation has been issued bringing the revised Statutes of Canada 
into force on the first day of February, and copies of the new revision will be 
available for the present session. 

Among other important matters to which your attention will be invited 
will be measures providing for more favourable trade relations between Canada 
and certain foreign countries, and for substantial assistance to and improved 
Facilities for industrial and scientific research. 

Members of the House of Commons: 

The public accounts for the last fiscal year and the estimates for the 
coming year will be submitted at an early date. 

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members ol the House of Commons: 

In again inviting your careful consideration of the important matters which 
will engage your attention, I pray that Divine Providence may guide and bless 
your deliberations. 

His Excellency the Governor General was pleased to retire. 

The Commons withdrew. 

After some time the Senate was resumed. 

PRAYERS. 

The Honourable Mr. Dandurand presented to the Senate a Bill intituled: 
"An Act relating to Railways." 

The said Bill was read the first time. 

The Honourable the Speaker informed the Senate that a copy of the Speech 
of His Excellency the Governor General had been left in his hands. 

The same was read by The Honourable the Speaker. 

Ordered, That the Speech of His Excellency the Governor General be taken 
into consideration on Tuesday, next. 

The Honourable the Speaker informed the Senate that the Clerk had 
received certificates from the Honourable the Secretary of State of Canada 
showing that 

Philippe Jacques Paradis, Esquire, 

Joseph Napoleon Kemner-Laflamme, Esquire, 

James Houston Spence, Esquire,

Address: 

To the Honourable George C. Dessaulles, 

Senator for the Rougemont Electoral Division of the Province of Quebec. 

Dear and Honoured Sir, 

We, your colleagues in the Senate of Canada, desiring to mark the attain 
ment of the great age of one hundred years by one who has retained all hi? 
activities as a Member of the Senate u p to this time, have resolved that the 



A.D. 1928 IST FEBRUARY 29 

event be signalized by placing in our gallery a painting which will enable future 
generations to behold and study the countenance with which we are so happily 
familiar. 

We desire to call attention to some points which show over how wide an 
historical field your life s journey has extended. Born in 1827, during the reign 
of George IV, when Canada was divided into Upper and Lower Canada, and 
Nova Scotia was an entirely separate Crown Colony, you have lived during the 
reign of five sovereigns in Great Britain; have seen the two Canadas united as 
one in 1841 and again strengthened by the formation of the Dominion in 1867. 
You have been able to watch the growth of the Dominion from the union of 
four Provinces to that of nine, and the development of the national status of the 
Dominion to the position that it holds at the present day as the elder of a group 
of sister nations within the British Commonwealth of Nations under His Majesty 
King George the Fifth. 

Born in Canada, at St. Hyacinthe, on the 27th September, 1827, you com 
menced your life of service to your country when you were chosen as a City 
Councillor for St. Hyacinthe in 1859, and retained that position till 1868, at 
which time you were elected Mayor, and continuously held the Mayoralty, 
except for a break of six years, until 1898. In 1897 you were elected to the 
Legislative Assembly of your Province, and in 1907, at the mature age of eighty 
years, you were called to the Senate. 

In the Provincial Legislature, and in the Senate, you have devoted your 
talents and energy to parliamentary work with the single purpose of the good 
of the people, and especially in your own part of the country you have been 
prominent in promoting and assisting the industrial and agricultural work of 
your Province. 

The Members of the Senate appreciate having in your person a worthy 
representative of those French speaking families whose distinguished good 
manners, high culture and social virtues left a deep imprint on the community 1 
of which they were the acknowledged leaders in your Province. 

During the time you have occupied a seat in this Chamber, you have been 
assiduous in your attendance, both in the Chamber and on the Committees, 
and have endeared yourself to all whom you have come in contact with by 
your gracious and kindly manner and your desire to attain your object without 
hurting or doing violence to the feelings of others, consequently, the present 
action of the Senate is unanimous and gives expression to the sincere sentiment 
of your colleagues of all shades of opinion, who unite in the hope that the 
Almighty may be pleased to prolong for years a life which has throughout 
been lived with a continued consciousness of His Divine oversight. 

HEWITT BOSTOCK, 

Speaker, 
On behalf of the Members of the Senate. 

The Senate, 1st February, 1928.

Mr. Speaker, Honourable Gentlemen of the Senate and Members of the 
House of Commons, I highly appreciate the remarkable reception that you 
have given me on this occasion. I have done nothing extraordinary in my 
life. I have always tried to do my best for the prosperity of the country, and 
particularly the prosperity of the little town of St. Hyacinthe, to which I

Hyacinths. They find it a very beautiful town and are glad to come and visit 
it often. Honourable gentlemen, I desire to express my sincere thanks.

portrait in the Senate Gallery, amongst those of Speakers and Members who 
have rendered signal service to our country. I have tried to be useful to my 
fellow citizens in the offices which they have entrusted to me, and I have been 
infinitely compensated by the confidence which they have reposed in me, and 
of which you give me to-day another example.
