December 15, 1945

Mr. BRUCE:

I think the minister misunderstood me. I am very happy to learn that he is moving the patients from Christie street to Sunnybrook. My comment was only in regard to the active treatment wing at Sunnybrook, where they are providing accommodation for doing a large amount of surgery. I gave reasons earlier why I thought much of this surgery would not be necessary when this wing is finished.

Mr. BRUCE:

I wish to make it quite clean that in my opinion this method of handling our returned cases would be very much better than the method which was followed during this war, and which was perhaps a hangover from the last war. On a former occasion I made a plea for federal help for civilian hospitals throughout Canada, and I should like to repeat that plea to-day. Without that assistance and the assistance of the provincial governments the municipalities will not be able to provide adequate care for our civilian population. The federal government should give that assistance because through taxation they are taking away the sources of revenue of these hospitals.

Mr. BRUCE:

I am well aware of that, but in spite of that fact, as a medical man I still hold the opinion which I have expressed.

Mr. BRUCE:

Are those in separate hospitals, or in connection with civic hospitals?

Mr. BRUCE:

I wish to take advantage of this amendment to put in a plea with the minister to assist the university of Toronto to get what is known as the Eglinton Hunt club quarters for housing for student veterans of this war who will enter for the next session, 1946. We are very short of housing in the city of Toronto. If these buildings could be obtained it would relieve living accommodation for other citizens. Therefore I ask the minister if he will use his best efforts to have the air force who are now occupying this building, in part only, give it up for the purposes of the university.
