Mr. Blackmore:

Well, I raised the question and I have told you what I mean and what I think. I hope I never have to sit in this house and hear any more of this particular doctrine that has been advocated in this connection.

The next matter that troubles me deeply is that the minister, out of the kindness of his heart, and I appreciate it, said that the department was considering various cases with a view to bringing these cases under the act. The question comes to my mind, have we drafted this act for the veterans or are we trying to make the veterans fit the act? If we have not drafted the act for the sake of the veterans it seems to me that we have gone off the track a long way. It seems to me that a veterans' act ought to include all veterans. I just wish to bring that to the minister's attention. I will not bother him any more at the present time. I appreciate the fact that he said these cases are receiving very careful attention. I hope they receive more careful attention than they received from the Liberal party during the years and years I have sat here while they formed the government.

Mr. Blackmore:

I might say that it is the men who are big, fine, noble men like this who pave the way for trouble for their weaker brethren. There are plenty of men, I will agree, who go through a war and at the end of it think they are all right. However any soldier who enlists for a modern war and goes right through that war, no matter how well he feels at the end of his service he has had things happen to his make-up which will tell on him sooner or later. Consequently we must have our act and our policies so framed that any veteran who needs treatment will be taken care of at any time.
