Mr. WOODS:

I am not in favour of this

vote. I have said the same thing in this House before. To my mind this money is practically wasted because it seems to me that it is used merely for the purpose of providing some officers with an outing. In my opinion the men who enlist in this force go into training for a week or two, not from patriotic or even military motives but to have an outing of this kind. I do not think that it makes for the development of soldiers; it is only a means of giving these men an outing for a little while in the summer. In the supplementary estimates this year another 8100,000 is added to this vote. I am opposed to this expenditure and I therefore move that the vote be reduced by $500,000.

The cities of Brantford and Sarnia, and various towns and places where the Crowsnest pass agreement is not in operation pay a much higher rate than is paid by other cities which come under the Crowsnest pass agreement. There is a gross discrimination against different cities and towns in Ontario. Brantford has a large binder twine mauufac-
