I know that, tout I am speaking of the cadet corps in Nova Scotia as recently formed under the Strathcona Trust. Now. I submit, the minister should not say that this vote to take boys from the public schools and send them to camp, is one in regard to which the opinion of the educational authorities in each province should not be had. I think my hon. friend should have taken the precaution of consulting with the provinces who are expending money in looking after the education of these teachers before he decided on this policy.
Take the agreement between Nova Scotia and the Strathcona Trust. The teachers, who are officials of the Nova Scotia government, come under that agreement. They receive certain special grants from the province as the result of their attending and receiving military
instruction, and so on. Now my hon. friend the Minister of Militia steps in and says: We are going to spend $130,000 in taking the boys and girls of the public schools to camp.
Mr. HUGHES (Victoria). No, we are
not taking the girls.
