MEDICAL LEGISLATION IN THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC
A bill emanating from the medical faculties of the Universities of Laval at Quebec and of McGill at Montreal, was introduced in the Legislature for the Province of Quebec, recently in session at Quebec City. The last feature of the bill was a direct menace to Christian Science practitioners and our Cause as well, but so insidiously was it phrased that it had received its second reading before the attention of the Christian Scientists in Montreal and the Eastern townships was directed to it through a local evening paper of Friday, the 1st of March.
Upon inquiry it was found that the third reading of the bill would be on the following Monday, so that between Saturday and Monday morning there was not much time to lose. By wiring to Quebec the lawyers engaged to look after the interests of the Scientists arranged to have the third reading postponed for one day. On Sunday night the attorneys representing First and Second Churches of Christ, Scientist, Montreal, went to Quebec City, followed on the Monday by deputations from both churches. On Tuesday the hearing took place, and the attorneys placed the case in a strong light and referred to an old French law by which the liberty of conscience of the subject in matters of his religion must not be interfered with.
The deputations from the Christian Science churches were well received and were listened to very respectfully. The Cabinet is composed principally of the French element, who inherit the characteristic of politeness in presence of and towards ladies. Suffice it to say, the obnoxious clause met its quietus, and the bill was practically killed.
