Mr. FRASER (Peterborough West):

Some of the Peterborough men had to travel 135 miles to try to enlist and were turned down. Would it not be possible for these men to be given passes on the Canadian National Railways in order that they might return home?

Mr. FRASER (Peterborough West):

Yes, the government should pay the transportation both ways. This situation has discouraged recruiting; in fact, it has really chilled it. I believe everything possible should be done for those men who are willing to give their lives for us, and I think transportation is one thing with which they should be supplied.

Mr. FRASER (Peterborough West):

I agree also. The men from Peterborough had to go to Picton, Kingston or Toronto. Some of them, after standing in line all day, were turned down or perhaps did not even get into the recruiting office. They had to get back the best way they could, and some of them went without food for two days.
