There is one point I
want to make clear. My hon. friend from Winnipeg (Mr. Woodsworth) seems to convey the impression that he represents Labour. I might say that when I was nominated the Labour candidate did me the honour to withdraw, and I got 95 per cent of the Labour vote in the district I represent. I have always supported the cadet movement and the militia, and will continue to do so. In fact, I should consider myself a traitor to the people I represent if I did not, and I am sorry to see this amount cut down. These boys should get the training to which they are justly entitled. I regret also that the militia training item is reduced, and I am more than sorry that there is not more money in the estimate for the navy. I do not believe in training our young people for the purpose of offensive, but I do believe in training them so that they may be able to defend themselves if ever the time comes they are called upon to do so.
