Mr. JAMESON:

What arrangement, if

any, does the minister purpose to make for settling soldiers in those provinces in which they desire 'to settle? I would like to know if any provision will foe made for the expropriation of land of a suitable character and what steps will be taken in that direction.

Mr. JAMESON:

If the minister pursues his argument a little further he will see that, upon his own statement, it is quite unnecessary for the Government to introduce this Bill at all. If the provinces will do it, why have this Bill?

Mr. JAMESON:

The difficulty I foresee is this: In certain provinces in Canada, notably, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, there are no free lands suitable for settlement.

Mr. JAMESON:

No, I am not overlooking it at all. I am speaking of the acquisition of the land. It is going to work a great unfairness to those provinces where the lands are not held in the Crown in the right of the Dominion. Of course, I can do nothing more than express my views to the minister and indicate the course which, in my opinion, the Government should pursue. Instead of adopting this unsatisfactory policy I can only point out what in my judgment would have been a better and a proper policy.
