Mr. Blackmore:

If the minister starts talking about being out of order we may do

Pension Act

something about it. The important fact is that this question was brought up by the hon. member for Kootenay West. The minister undertook to answer it on the first clause of the bill when we went into committee. If it is not in order for me to raise the matter and ask the minister for clarification, I am just a little astonished. I just want to raise the matter, but if I am out of order I will just say this. If any veteran who has signed up and gone through a war is not entitled to such treatment as he needs in any hospital in this country, then the sooner everybody in Canada knows about it the better.

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:

Before this clause is carried, I should like to bring two matters up for the consideration of the minister. Earlier in the day when the hon. member for Kootenay West was talking about certain veterans in need of treatment who, upon application to Shaughnessy hospital had been denied such treatment, the word came out that no veteran who was entitled to treatment or who was eligible for treatment was denied it. I should like to ask, what more should a man do than enlist and go through a war and be a veteran in order to entitle him to treatment in any hospital in this country? What do you mean by saying any veteran should not be entitled to help whenever he needs it and wherever he needs it?
