Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil):
Yes, he can, because he is not dependent entirely on the quarter section. Nine times out of ten they have a ranch, a leasehold and a considerable number of cattle; and there is no doubt that the ownership of a quarter section is a good influence upon the younger generation; it makes them feel they have a real stake in the country. I fancy that this will work out all right, but I would not want to extend it to any large area. You would find it difficult to discriminate, as we are doing here, if it were made of general application.
