Unionist

Mr. TURRIFF:

The point raised by the member for North Perth (Mr. Morp'hy) is well taken, particularly if we have regard to the suggestion made by the member for Maisonneuve (Mr. Lemieux) a little while *ago that the Patriotic Fund should be raised by taxation. That has- always been my own view. 1 do not agree with the member for Maisonneuve that the wealthy are providing the great bulk of the money. The poor people of Canada have given much more largely in proportion to what they have than the wealthy people.

Topic:   CANADIAN PATRIOTIC FUND ACT AMENDMENT.
