SELECTIVE SERVICE


On the orders of the day:


LIB

George Alexander Cruickshank

Liberal

Mr. G. A. CRUICKSHANK (Fraser Valley):

I have a question which I would like to address to the Minister of Labour, but in his absence I will address it to the parliamentary assistant. My attehtion has been called to selective service order 227-58, which requires, as I understand it, all veterans who did not see service outside Canada to be subject to removal from their present occupation to essential industry. They are holding a meeting in Vancouver to-night. They are not objecting to being placed in industry, in fact they are in favour of it, but they do resent being placed in the same category as zombies or those who did not volunteer for service. If what I have said is correct, the order makes a clear distinction between volunteers who were unable to get overseas through no fault of their own and those who did get overseas.
