July 18, 1924 (14th Parliament, 3rd Session)


James Shaver Woodsworth



In this connection
I beg to quote a short paragraph from the Quebec Chronicle of April 29, 1924.
The military authorities seem to forget that the war is over anid that cadres that were absolutely necessary in war time are now perfectly useless. The objects of a war force and a peace organisation are entirely different, for one is a fighting and the other an educational institution. It must be apparent that the ways anid means of achieving the desired end should be different if they are to be effective.

Supply-Permanent Force
And again:
By cutting down the staffs, both at headquarters and in the districts, an economy of over $200,000 of pay and allowances could be made without hampering in any way the administration of the force. At the present time we are paying and keeping a staff sufficient to administer an army of 300,000 men in any continental military force.
