December 13, 1945 (20th Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

Herbert Alexander Bruce

Progressive Conservative

Mr. BRUCE:

I wish to take advantage of this amendment to put in a plea with the minister to assist the university of Toronto to get what is known as the Eglinton Hunt club quarters for housing for student veterans of this war who will enter for the next session, 1946. We are very short of housing in the city of Toronto. If these buildings could be obtained it would relieve living accommodation for other citizens. Therefore I ask the minister if he will use his best efforts to have the air force who are now occupying this building, in part only, give it up for the purposes of the university.
