Since the winding up of the Union Life Insurance Company, I have received several communications asking me to inquire from the minister whether he was satisfied that the Insurance Department had been properly reorganized since the superannuation of Mr. Fitzgerald, and whether it was properly manned and equipped for the performance of the duties it is called upon to discharge. The minister is familiar with the large interests the Canadian people have in life and other
insurance companies, and the fact that this company had to be wound up has directed attention to this peculiar feature of our financial life. I am sure that an assurance from the Government that the interests of the public are being properly safeguarded would be very much appreciated.
