September 11, 1939

Mr. ROBICHAUD:

But why the distinction between "collected" and "contributed"? Why use the word "collect"? It was not used in the old act, and while under the old act contributions may have been voluntary in theory, in practice a gun was held up at you.

Mr. ROBICHAUD:

I have been secretary of my county for the last twenty-two years, and I was secretary then. 1 know that we were given a quota which our municipality had to raise, and I understand that was the case with every other municipality in the province. It may have been done under a provincial act. It should be made clear that no such compulsory contributions will be attempted at this time.
