Mr. COTE:

Mr. COTE:

I agree with hon. members who have so well pleaded the cause of the unregistered nurse. I should now like to draw the attention of the minister to the expenses incurred for the services of registered optometrists. In Quebec and all the other provinces there is provincial legislation which regulates the practice of optometry; and since the privilege is extended in respect of expenses of medical practitioners, dentists, and nurses registered under any dominion or provincial legislation or regulations, I would ask that the same treatment foe given optometrists. I believe that lack of suitable glasses is just as likely to debar a man from work as is sickness. In my province it is the duty of the optometrist to examine sight and prescribe the wearing of suitable glasses. I believe that this type of professional man should be added to those already mentioned, since he is duly registered in each province and his practice is regulated by a distinct provincial statute.

Mr. COTE:

This resolution mentions only pensions granted to any member of his majesty's forces, for any disability. The pensions granted under section 21 of the Pension Act are granted not on account of any disability of the veteran, but sometimes in lieu of a disability allowance, and on compassionate or meritorious grounds. I have in mind the case of a widow in my constituency whose husband died some years ago with disability below 50 per cent. In his lifetime he was paid a pension, but from the moment of his death the widow loses the pension because the disability was below 50 per cent. In view of the fact that this veteran had served in the South African war and the last war, she was granted a pension on compassionate and meritorious grounds. Is such a pension covered by this resolution?

Mr. COTE:

He can deduct up to the

amount of the compulsory savings? I point this out because it seems to me that justice is not being done to the small property owner. In my riding most of the small property owners are wage earners who have invested their savings in small properties. If they have two properties and do not inhabit either of them, they are not entitled to deduct anything from their compulsory savings because they do not reside in either of the properties.
