The Salvation Army today have their hospitals classed as public institutions and if they run their old folks' homes -and I am sure they do-in the same fashion, they will get it. The type of old folks' homes which will not be exempt are fairly common on Vancouver island. They are places to which people who have some means actually go and pay for their care. People live together in a small community in pleasant cottages, and these cottages are classed as old folks' homes. They are not in the same category as hospitals run by the Salvation Army or by a municipality or a province.
