It seems to me, as the hon. member for Lanark has pointed out, that the term "nursing home" really demands more definite definition, because in most provinces of the country the nursing home is to a degree synonymous with a hospital, perhaps a hospital of a lower grade. Most of the people in a nursing home are ill. Some of them, or a fair proportion of them, care for the chronically ill but not the acutely ill. Nevertheless they are people who require nursing and medical care. Unless this legislation is going to conflict with the proposed hospital legislation I think there should be a complete definition of the term "nursing home".
