July 1, 1938

Mr. J. FRED JOHNSTON (Lake Centre):

There is a matter of importance that- I should like to bring to the attention of the house. The calendar reminds us that this is the first of July and I could not help thinking as I came up to the buildings this morning how little had been done in this capital city to commemorate the event of this day. Walking along the streets I saw scarcely a flag in evidence.

Mr. JOHNSTON (Lake Centre):

We, as

Canadians, do too little in that regard, though we sometimes criticize other people for doing too much of that sort of thing. According to the press, in the city of Kingston the national convention of fascists is taking place to-day, and it occurs to me that perhaps we have not done enough in the past to educate our youth to a realization of exactly what this confederation means to the young people of the country. I trust that when the first of July comes around next year, there will be in this capital city more evidence of our remembrance of Canada's national birthday.

The house in committee of supply, Mr. Sanderson in the chair.

Mr. JOHNSTON (Lake Centre):

Very

few. As one turns the comer at the Rideau club he finds the flag of the great republic of the United States displayed over the main entrance in such a way that he cannot help seeing it. I think that this building, the houses of parliament, should have been decorated to-day.

The DEPUTY CHAIRMAN:

Order. I must point out that all this discussion on section 106 has been out of order. Section 106 was carried in the committee some three days ago. All sections of the bill and all schedules have been adopted by the committee. Shall I report the bill?
