Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):
He is a first class citizen of Canada, and he took a keen interest in these matters. Will the minister say that if requisitions are sent on for A.R.P. material such as he mentions, the government will at once arrange to have it issued? So far I think it has been limited in New Brunswick to the seaport city of Saint John, though there have been some small efforts made by the city of Moncton. With these exceptions the movement has not been extended, I suppose on the theory that Hitler's submarines have not reached this side of the ocean as yet. In the city of Halifax, however, they have done a very considerable amount of work. How far is the government prepared to go towards, shall I say, underwriting the cost of this movement, or has consideration been given that point?
