Mr. BRADBURY:

There is an army and navy organization of the Empire in Toronto; there are various army and navy organizations. We are asking for the name "The Army and Navy Veterans in Canada." By this name the organization will be distinguished from other organizations already existing.

Because they are

spread out all over the Dominion. They have been doing splendid work; they have recruited about five battalions in the Northwest through their own efforts. Thi= incorporation is not intended to clash in any way with any of the other institutions to which my hon. friend refers.

Mr. BRADBURY:

These men are really the pioneers in this line; they have done excellent work; they have spent a large

amount of their own money with ia view to promoting the interests of the Empire. There is not likely to he any clash between this organization and any other similar body. They do not intend to do the work which is the object of the organization formed in Ottawa-that of looking after the rights and interests of returned soldiers. They are, however, forming clubs and libraries all over Canada for war veterans; that is the purpose of the Bill.

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]
