MACLEOD, MANAGER. 4 Montreal, Aug. the munici- palities convention considerable cussion was raised over a resolution fathered "by Mayor Bardie of-Leth- bridge, which stated that "Whereas, the Canadian overseas army is purely a citizen army, the, Union of Canadian Municipalities put on record its opin- ion that the Dominion government should amend the pension act so that all soldiers, officers and privates alike, be on.an equality in all pensions.' Mayor Hardie. in support of his reso- lution, stated that, !n his. opinion, it was not right that the men, who an the outset of the war, as well as at the present time, who gave up much to go quickly, who did not wait for the opportunity to secure a'com- mission, but went as privates, should be treated differently in the matter of pensions from ".those" who'refused to go unless they went as officers. He stated that it had come to lu's own per- sonal knowledge in the west I hat many of the .best men went in the ranks, while others not so well qualified eith- er hung back till they, by one means or another, secured'a higher rank. There was a strong opinion that this was not a matter that the union ahpuld take up, and an amendment to the.ef- fect that the meeting with the sentiments of the resolution, but that the matter he, left on the table, was carried.
