December 15, 1945 (20th Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

Herbert Alexander Bruce

Progressive Conservative

Mr. BRUCE:

I wish to make it quite clean that in my opinion this method of handling our returned cases would be very much better than the method which was followed during this war, and which was perhaps a hangover from the last war. On a former occasion I made a plea for federal help for civilian hospitals throughout Canada, and I should like to repeat that plea to-day. Without that assistance and the assistance of the provincial governments the municipalities will not be able to provide adequate care for our civilian population. The federal government should give that assistance because through taxation they are taking away the sources of revenue of these hospitals.
