Mr. Chairman, with reference to the first matter dealt with by the hon. member for Broadview, for his benefit and for that of hon. members generally in the committee, lest a wrong impression might have been left in their minds, let me say that any members of the armed forces in the Toronto district, to which the hon. member referred especially, who are in trouble, may have the benefit of legal advice and defence in any of the courts, from the police courts through to the assize courts. That service is rendered without charge, by reason of an arrangement with the benchers of the Law Society of Upper Canada and the York County Law Society, whereby they have brought into being a list of junior members of the bar who are willing to volunteer their services, when called upon by a crown attorney, magistrate or judge, to act without fee in the defence of any member of the armed forces. So far as the Toronto district is concerned there need be no apprehension about that, and I believe-the Minister of Justice would know better than I-that the dominion law society across Canada have made somewhat similar arrangements in all the great cities. My friend from Vancouver will know.
