Mr. NICHOLSON (Algoma):
Then the clause is foadly worded. But in any event, I say that if we grant a pension to a widowed mother we ought to leave her alone. The thing I object to above all is the constant harrying of the widowed mother by inspectors who go around to find out what she is getting in the shape of an income. I know what are the feelings of the woman who has lost her boy, and the question as to whether or not she is getting an income to live on should be settled in some otheT way than by having inspectors going to her home to investigate conditions and to ascertain whether she may have secured something in the Way of an income from [DOT] Mr. Power !
some source, perhaps from a daughter who is earning a little, or from a son who is gracious enough to give to his mother a part of his earnings.
