Mr. Wood:

The idea might be commendable, but we have many farm organizations in western Canada; and I would not want to be a member of any board which had to decide how that money should be divided. If that money could be divided without any trouble the idea might be commendable. I believe the idea of setting up a fund to give to boys and girls from the farms of the prairie provinces scholarships in the colleges of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, in order to follow this class of work of research and the like, is highly commendable. Therefore I consider that this motion deserves the support of the members of this house.
