Mr. SCHAFFNER:

This notice has been on the Order Paper so long that I was in hopes that it would stay there until the session closed. I agree entirely with the remarks of the last speaker. If you have more daylight than you know what to do with in the East, we certainly have in the West. You say that you have daylight at four o'clock in the East and that it is dark at eight. In the West you have daylight at half-past two and you can see to read at ten o'clock.

Mr. SCHAFFNER:

The report read by my hon. friend the Minister of Trade and Commerce applies to England and possibly the continent of Europe. The conditions are not parallel as between Great Britain and Canada. You may say that the United States would perhaps present a parallel case. Did I understand the minister to say that a daylight saving law had been adopted there?

Mr. SCHAFFNER:

I agree entirely with what the hon. gentleman from North Perth and the hon. member from Edmonton have stated. I think among all the classes of young men throughout Canada, no class has been more ready, and more willing, and has, to a greater extent, volunteered to go to the front than university students. I think that can be proved beyond doubt. But if it is intended to exclude or to exempt university students, I cannot see any argument for so doing. I wish to enter my protest, without any further argument. I cannot see any reason why the divinity students should be exempt. Some hon. gentleman thought we would be insulting the farmer by even offering to exempt him from service at the front. I think the divinity students would feel much more insulted, if they were exempted. They have shown that they are ready to go forward and serve their country, and I hope what has been said along this line will change the minds of those who have the Bill in hand, and that divinity students will not be exempted.
