Owen C. Trainor

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Trainor:

This provides that if the money is paid by the province or the municipality directly to the hospital, the institution is not eligible. When it is paid to the individual, then the institution becomes eligible. It seems to me that this will greatly encourage the use of subterfuge on the part of municipal and provincial governments, which might switch from a method of financial support directly to the institution to the individual, and in that case the individual would be required to pay directly to the institution.
