Mr. Murray (Cariboo):
-of the government of British Columbia.
This is something which is of national interest, because out in that country we have many thousands of young men and women who have received great benefits under this training program. It is my belief that it is better to treat with the youth and build up their health and strength through wholesome training such as that which was initiated in British Columbia than it is to wait and to take care of them later on in life as physically unfit persons who are to receive pensions under the Department of National Health and Welfare for disabilities which could easily be overcome if this physical training plan were carefully administered and carried out. In this connection may I say that I think the minister himself is a splendid example of what physical training can do for a man.
