Mr. DONNELLY:

Socialization of the banking, credit and financial system of the country, together with the social ownership, development, operation and control of utilities and natural resources.

Everything in the heavens above and the earth beneath and the waters under the earth.

I quote further:

Q. "Does this political party consider that the objective so stated gives us a mandate to bring into operation socialism if elected?"

A. "Yes."

Then they find fault because we say they are socialists. I do not know why they should do so.

Mr. DONNELLY:

Yes, and one of those is in Weybum. In addition, our government pays so much per patient per diem to our ordinary hospitals. That payment has been as high as $1 per patient per diem, but at the present time, on account of the financial condition of the province, it is only fifty or seventy-five cents. As far as our municipal doctors are concerned, the public are well satisfied. In my district we have had them for the last fourteen or fifteen years, and would not have anything else. The municipal doctors like it. The people like it, and would not have anything else. These are some of the types of legislation we have there; but to hear some hon. members speaking, one would think that the people from Saskatchewan are half starved, anaemic, poor and ignorant, that they are just poor country cousins.

Mr. DONNELLY:

Yes, " keep on reading." I will read the rest some other time. I wonder whether the hon. member will prove to be any more correct with regard to this "bogeyman" of socialism than in his prophecy that there was no danger of war. We only wish that he had been a real prophet at that time, and that there had been no war. It is too bad for this country and for all the world that he was not a better prophet than he turned out to be. That is all I need say about that at the present time.
