Excerpt from Soldier Settlement on the Land: Report of the Soldier Settlement Boards of Canada, March 31, 1921
If the question is asked: Why have not or soldiers or more settled on land instead of the answer, apart from the question of availability of large sums of money for the purpose, is that probably two or three times as many men would have settled had it not been for the safeguards necessary to secure success ful settlers. If every applicant had settled who desired to do so without adequate agricultural experience and without the payment of a personal stake in the land, if a policy had been followed of automatically establishing on land every applicant who had the necessary military service, a much greater number would have taken up land, but the number of failures and financial losses involved would have been abnormal. No propaganda has been carried on by the board to induce settlement. The men settled are those with the initiative and personal and other factors necessary on approved locations to ensure a reasonable prospect of success.
