CON

John Allister Currie

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CURRIE:

I would agree that in
Alberta they did keep out of politics, and that they did more than any other section of the country on that account, but that statement did not hold good down in Ontario and other parts of the country, and that is one of the reasons why recruiting did not go on as it should have last year. I agree with the hon. member thoroughly. I should like to ask him, in all kindness, does he . not know a number of men, even in Alberta, who should have volunteered, and did not do so, whom this law will take?
