Mr. Hellyer:

The auxiliary supervisors

were eligible for the Canadian Volunteer Service medal and I was wondering if the same privilege could not be given to the firefighters?

Mr. Hellyer:

Will the minister give further consideration to the request of the Canadian corps of firefighters? I understand that they have two modest demands, first, eligibility to receive the Canadian Volunteer Service medal and then to be given preference in employment in the civil service. As the minister is aware, these men enlisted for service anywhere without reservation and were subject to great danger. In the British zone, at least, they were required to stay out at times when the armed forces were ordered underground, and they were not too highly compensated for their services. I admit that they have been given most of the benefits that have accrued to the armed forces, but as they did such great service in that area, as they helped with the loading of barges for the attack on Europe, as a commitment was made, at least by inference, by Major General LaFleche that they would be granted equal rights with the armed forces, I wonder if it would not be possible for the minister to give further consideration to their requests?

Mr. Hellyer:

We do not intend to have one. I suggest, Mr. Speaker, that if hon. members opposite would devote their time and talents

The Budget-Mr. Hellyer to an effort to develop new industries so as to provide employment in exploiting the natural resources of the country, we might make appreciable progress toward full nationhood, and in the process enable immigrants in larger numbers to join with us in building Canada into that still greater nation which I am sure we all fervently hope it will one day become. As a closing remark, Mr. Speaker, I should think that this all ties in with something else which is of extreme interest to most people at the present time, and that is that if we can break this one thing, this business cycle, we shall have for all time disproved the Marxist theory and, in the words of Woodrow Wilson, made the world safe for democracy.

On motion of Mr. Fleming the debate was adjourned.

Mr. Hellyer:

And probably to make sure that there would be further extravagance and further expenditures; because some of the things I have looked over I am sure could not be justified on a self-liquidating basis, and certainly they would have been in a questionable category as far as extravagance is concerned.

National development is also in line with the minister's procedure of sound budgeting. At the present time projects are being carried forward as fast as they can be absorbed. If you read the forecast tabled in this house you will find that this year the capital expenditure will probably be the highest in the history of the Canadian economy. Most of it is relegated to two or three particular types of construction and development. Most of the things which hon. members opposite

1924 HOUSE OF

The Budget-Mr. Hellyer have suggested we should have done are things which would compete with the things being done, to the extent that the inflationary spiral would start again, with higher and higher prices; and you would be right back throwing at us the fact that things were getting out of hand and our money was being further depreciated, and so on.

The conclusion to these few remarks is,

I think, Mr. Speaker, that they do not know just what to ask for and do not know just what to complain about but because of their honourable status as His Majesty's loyal opposition they have to take some position. One day it is one position and another day it is the other position. But they are consistent in one fact: it is always some position.
