I support the position taken by the last two speakers. I know something about the work of the Forestry Association, and it is a very great advantage to Canada at the present time. There are few things undertaken by any department of Government more important just now than the preservation of our forests. This is a matter to which we must pay careful attention. Considerable stir has been created by certain people regarding the export of pulp wood from the country. The way things are at present, however, it would be better to export pulpwood and all other kinds of wood as fast as possible, because more wood is lost every year by fire than by exportation. The big task which the Government has before it is the preservation of our forests, and the Canadian Forestry Association is doing a very important work in this respect. I emphatically endorse the proposition made by the last few speakers. Does this vote include any amount for aerial service? Is it the intention of the minister to establish an aerial patrol, if so, is anything being done in that respect, and if something is being done, to what extent is it being done? In other countries-I will not say specially in the United States, although I know something about it there-aerial services are established which are of very great moment in this connection. Far more work can be done by one aeroplane than by hundreds of men patrolling in other ways, and I would like to have some information from the minister in this respect.
