Mr. CLARENCE JAMESON (Digby):

I shall only detain the House a moment. I am sorry that the hon. member for Pictou (Mr. Macdonald) thought it well to import what might be regarded as a slightly partisan tone into a purely economic discussion. This question of technical education was brought before this House eight years ago. I do not think there is any question in the mind of any hon. member that technical education in some measure at least lies within the power of this Parliament. This question is as to what we are going to do. Eight years have elapsed and I think it is now time that some action should be taken.

As an illustration of need for action, I met the other day the head of a large industrial concern in this country and he told me that some short time ago he had required an efficiency expert for his business; being unable to get one in Canada, he had to go to the United States, where he found a former Canadian, who had secured his technical training in that country and who was most efficient in his special line. To talk of not being able to afford the expenditure which would be involved in taking the necessary steps to put into effect technical education in this country on a broad and liberal plan, is not, I think, a proper view to take. I do not think that a few million dollars expended for such a purpose should be considered at all when compared with

lm

the value of the return which this country, and the generation which is now growing up, will derive from the investment. We are asked to wait-to waif until the war is over. Mr. Speaker, opportunity and time do not wait and opportunity and time are now with us. I do not think this is a case in which we should wait. I do not think we are doing our duty if we do wait. We din not prepare for this war; we could not prepare for it because we did not foresee it hut, in the name of Heaven, let us prepare for the peace which we hope and believe is soon coming.
