Mr. ROSS (St. Paul's):
Last night the hon. member for Renfrew South (Mr. McCann) referred to the grant to the Health League of Canada. I mention the matter at this
time so that before we come to a more detailed consideration of that organization, and while we are still discussing administration, the minister might very well ask his colleagues to reconsider the grant to the health league, with a view to increasing it.
I am familiar with the wonderful work that organization is doing to-day, and the difficulties it has to face. If we can afford to give $100,000 to the city of Ottawa, as has been done in years past; if we are not going to ask the city of Ottawa to economize a little bit, and if we are doing that at the expense of the Health League of Canada, then all I can say is that I am sorry I was not more vocal in my observations about the $100,000 grant given to Ottawa. I would ask the minister kindly to reconsider the vote when the supplementary estimates are presented.
