Mr. MACDONALD:

If this is to he a

Dominion-wide organization, there ought to be in the list of its incorporators the names of representative men from other provinces

of the Dominion who have returned from the from.

Every hon. member knows there are in every province organizations of men who have been to the front in the present war. Those organizations have various names. They are entitled to be called the Army and Navy Veterans in Canada. Some of these organizations may ask: What right has Parliament to give that corporate title to these people of Manitoba?

Mr. OLIVER:

These gentlemen asked for the name first, and perhaps they are entitled to it on that ground.

Mr. CURRIE; Army and Navy Veterans' organizations have been formed in every province, in many cities and towns. They are all organizations for old veterans of the Fenian raid and veterans of the Northwest rebellion. All those gentlemen named in this Bill belong to that association. The associations in Winnipeg and in Toronto are very active, and I do not think they will interfere with the veterans of this war who are called the Great War Veterans and who do not admit anybody to membership who has not been to 5 p.m. France or Flanders. There are' other associations such as the returned soldiers, who admit to membership those who have not been to the front. I understand this is to become the parent organization of other organizations of the same name throughout Canada, and as they had this name originally, it is only fair that they should retain it now. They are a very fine body of representative men of all the provinces. Col. Denison,, Col. Ryerson and many of the leading officers of Ontario are in the Ontario organization. If there was any objection to this Bill, some of the Ontario' men-and I think there-is an assocation of Army and Navy Veterans in Ottawa-would immediately have made a protest.

Robert Rogers

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. ROGERS:

The objection raised by my hon. friend is covered by section 3 which says:

The head office of the association shall be in the city of Winnipeg, in the province of Manitoba, or in such other place in Canada as may from time to time be determined by the. asso- [DOT] ciation.

The association is not confined to Winnipeg. The Winnipeg veterans lead the way, as the people of Winnipeg, of course, do in all matters.

Bill reported, read the third time and passed.
