Sir FREDERICK BORDEN.

Some of them. I can only repeat what I said to my hon. friend the other day. In the letter which he sent me from Captain Collins reference was made to the fact that these veterans had appeared before the Prince during his last visit in 1901 at Toronto and I believe at other points. I pointed out then that this was done without any expense to the public whatever. Those veterans resident in Toronto and vicinity marched past there. The same thing might happen at Quebec and Halifax. I do not Mr. BLAIN.
see why the veterans might not be represented at Quebec by that portion which happens to live in Quebec. I said I would submit the question to the commission. I have done so and have an answer which I am going to send to my hon. friend from North Toronto (Mr. Foster). It is to the effect that the matter is being considered.
