Mr. DONNELLY:

Yes, and one of those is in Weybum. In addition, our government pays so much per patient per diem to our ordinary hospitals. That payment has been as high as $1 per patient per diem, but at the present time, on account of the financial condition of the province, it is only fifty or seventy-five cents. As far as our municipal doctors are concerned, the public are well satisfied. In my district we have had them for the last fourteen or fifteen years, and would not have anything else. The municipal doctors like it. The people like it, and would not have anything else. These are some of the types of legislation we have there; but to hear some hon. members speaking, one would think that the people from Saskatchewan are half starved, anaemic, poor and ignorant, that they are just poor country cousins.
