Mr. MACKENZIE (Vancouver Centre):

Yes, the Toronto East General. The hospitalization problem is well in hand. The hard weather we had some months ago kept us somewhat behind in the construction of S'unny-brook hospital, but Christie street has been completely renovated, and we have other accommodation in St. Thomas and elsewhere, so that we are reasonably satisfied that we shall meet the problem.

As regards the general problem, that will not be settled this year or next year. There are new problems constantly arising and they must be met as they present themselves. But we have the basic fabric of solid legislation for rehabilitation, and that will be constantly improved by discussion in this House of Commons.
