Mr. H. A. MACKIE:
Will the hon, gentleman explain to me the evidence that is to be found on page 649:
] >y Mr. Pardee :
Q. Would there be any call in this scheme which would necessarily keep these people her 3? Take this instance; a man left a month ago for the United States, and living there for a short time declares he desires to reside in Canada and comes back and makes application.
Then there is this further evidence to be found on page 650:
Mr. Pardee: They can give him his money
to-day and to-morrow he goes.
Mr. Waistell: Good luck to him. I will
answer your question to the best of my ability. I said at the very outset these are suggestions which are made to members of Parliament just by our own Canadian soldiers. We are not legal lights, neither are we educational experts to define these documents in such a degree of nicety that we will get everything off to the precise line; we are giving you suggestions on broad principles, which in your greater executive ability you will perfect.
What has the hen. gentleman to say to this evidence of the chief witness on behalf of the committee who drew up the plan of the Great War Veterans?
