On September 8, Prime Minister King called a special session of Parliament to decide Canada's response. King gave a strong speech in favor of declaring war. His minister of justice, Ernest Lapointe from Quebec, also spoke in favour of the war, which helped convince Quebec voters that Canada's involvement in the war was necessary. But Lapointe spoke bluntly about what Conscription would do to Liberal supporters in Quebec. "I am authorized by my colleagues in the cabinet from Quebec," he informed Parliament, "to say that we will never agree to conscription and will never be members or supporters of a government that will try to enforce it." King assured Parliament, and Quebec, that "So long as this government may be in power, no such measure [Conscription] shall be enacted." King's position on joining the way was supported by the opposition Conservation Party. Only J.S Woodsworth, leader of the Commonwealth Cooperative Federation(CCF), argued against going to war.
