Mr. BRUCE:

I hope a similar arrangement may be made with respect to the use of this building as was made by the Minister of Munitions and Supply with the university for the use of the Ajax building near Pickering. There should be no difficulty in that regard. I do not think it would come under the classification to which the minister refers.

Mr. BRUCE:

I think it would take about 400, perhaps 450 who otherwise would have no place to live. A thorough canvas has been made of possible living quarters without success. We have had to take Ajax, as the minister probably knows, and this will be filled to capacity next year. I urge upon the government to vacate this building and make it available for veteran students.

Hon. H. A. BRUCE (Parkdale):

Mr. Speaker, I simply wish to reiterate what I have said in former sessions of this house in opposition to the method of handling divorce which we have had illustrated here this evening. It is nothing but a farce, and I think this house should rid itself of the responsibility of giving its assent to divorce bills in the way it is being done here to-night and has been done on former occasions. I therefore approve of the recommendation of the hon. member for Winnipeg South Centre (Mr. Maybank) and think the suggestion made by the hon. member for Stanstead (Mr. Hackett) might very well be incorporated in the work of the committee. At any rate our first and

Divorce Bill

important duty is to get rid of the present unsatisfactory method of granting divorce. None of us knows the details of any of these cases, and we are quite incompetent to say whether the parties applying should be given their freedom. Although I would not for one moment suggest that we impose on the province of Quebec a court to deal with divorce if they do not want it, I think the people of that province who wish a divorce could very well come to a court in the city of Ottawa where they could seek relief by the regular process of law.. I protest against the present procedure and hope that something will be done at the next session to remedy the situation.
