Mr. F. G. SANDERSON (South Perth):

I do not desire to prolong this debate in any way, Mr. Speaker, but I want to put myself on record this afternoon in a very few words. I want to say that I am not quite in accord with the resolution as worded. I imagine also that there is a little bit more politics in it than there should be, but apart altogether from that I agree with a great deal that has been said by hon. members opposite. I will go this far, and say that I think the hon. member for Toronto Northwest (Mr. Church) deserves a great deal of credit for bringing this matter up again. It is a question that concerns not only the people of Ontario but the people of the whole Dominion as well. In Ontario we hear it discussed more and more all the time; it is getting more vital, and people are becoming more insistent in demanding that some solution of this difficulty be found.
Mr, CHAPLIN (Lincoln): Is that why politics come into it?
