George Perry Graham (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Liberal

Mr. GRAHAM:

I have always been
strongly in favour of the Royal Military College ever since I visited it. Before that time I did not believe in it. I met boys there who had gone in ungainly youths and had been converted into perfect gentlemen. At the Royal Military College they have a severer physical test than at any other institution in Canada, and there is no other place where they get such an all round training. I have a strong and abiding faith in the belief that a man to be mentally strong must be physically fit, otherwise he is top heavy and not of much use.
