Arthur Bliss Copp (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. COPP:

Under the present legislation
an employee has to elect whether he will come under the compensation act or the provident fund. The provident fund, as my hon. friend knows, does not give anything to the dependents of a man injured or killed while working on the railway. Under this amendment the provident fund is left intact and compensation is worked out by the compensation board in each province.
