Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):
I should hope so. I am waiting for that resolution to come up. I have had difficulty enough to pay the tax in twelve monthly instalments. I still have two to pay on the 1941 tax, and by the way, I do not know whether I shall have it paid then, because I have not got my assessment.
I just complete paying my income tax for 1941 on August 31, and if on September 15, two weeks later, I have to pay one-quarter of my 1942 tax, I shall just be out of luck, I shall have to go to the bank'; and I cannot use my war savings certificates, of which I have tried to take the maximum every month since they started.
I wonder if the minister has not arrived at the time when he is asking the people to go as far as they can in the payment of personal income tax. I have received reams of letters of protest against the taxes under this budget. I have some of them here; I am not going to spread them on the record although I have authority to do so.
I received a letter from a young Anglican clergyman who has a parish in the province of Quebec. He receives a stipend of $1,500: he has a free rectory on which he is charged a rental valuation of $250 per annum. I doubt if it is worth that much, because it is in a small village; but he has to pay on $1,750. He has to keep a conveyance of some sort to meet his appointments-a horse in the winter, a car in the summer. He has to send his children away to school, because in his locality the schools are quite inadequate. I do not know whether the minister knows the situation in the province of Quebec, but in small communities there is quite a dearth of educational facilities under the Protestant school commisssion for children such as his.
