Mr. Chairman, in my opinion no condition should be laid down by this House in regard to the appointment of trustees. I would leave it in such a way that any representations would be considered by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council. As to the suggestion bjr the hon. member for Burrard (Mr. Clark) that military units now in existence should have representation, I am not in agreement with him. There may be military unite in Vancouver, but to-day throughout the interior of British Columbia there are practically none, and I am convinced that to lay down the condition that such military units should have representation would create dissatisfaction. I am sure every one in this House, and more especially the Minister of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment, wishes to evolve a measure that will prove as near satisfactory to the returned men and to the country as is possible, but I do not think we are likely to reach this desirable
result- if we attempt to lay down conditions regarding the appointment of trustees. Certainly I cannot subscribe to such a course and I cannot agree that military units now in existence should be given representation.
