George Black

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BLACK (Yukon):

Mr. Chairman, I
think the wording of section 30 is clearly .open to the interpretation that the member for Comox-Alberni says is sometimes put upon it. The latter part of subsection (g) reads:
Provided however that the provisions of this paragraph shall not disqualify or render incompetent to vote any person who has served in the naval, military or air forces of Canada in the late war and who produces a discharge from such naval, military or air force, to the registrar upon the making of the voters' lists and to the deputy returning officer at the time of polling.
Production of the discharge seems to be the only qualification.
