To increase the public influence of veterans by organization, by parades and by giving as an entity expressions of opinion upon public questions affecting the rights of veterans or concerning the welfare of the whole or any part of the Empire;

To stimulate the spirit of patriotism in Canada and to promote, on sound and enduring principles of equality of rights, a Greater Britain, by a closer unity and coordination of the Overseas Dominions with the Mother Country;

Mr. BRADBURY:

It is the purpose to

have organizations all over the country, and they have many of them now. They have branches in Ottawa and Toronto, and in every town in the North West. It is the olu organization, and all they are asking is for Dominion authority. They have been doing very useful work.

Mr. BRADBURY:

The Bill before the House is one applied for by the Army and Navy Veterans of Canada. This is one of the oldest organizations in Canada, having

been formed in Winnipeg a short time after the Fenian Raid. After the Northwest Rebellion an amalgamation was made, and they called themselves the Army and Navy Veterans. Since this war started they have rendered very efficient services. They have recruited, through their organization, over 5,GOO men-over five battalions. Three years ago they secured a provincial charter in Manitoba. There are branches of this organization all over Canada. They are asking now for a Dominion charter. They have done splendid work. The Bill has been examined very thoroughly in the Senate and before the House of Commons Committee. [DOT]

Mr. BRADBURY:

I do not think that that matter was considered at all. This is an old association; it has been in operation ever since the Northwest Rebellion.
