Hon. RODOLPHE LEMIEUX:
I have a question to put which is of some urgency, and as the Minister of Labour is not in his seat perhaps onh of the other ministers might reply. The strike at Winnipeg seems to have developed into serious proportions, all the public services of the city being practically in a state of collapse. Is the Government in a position to say what measures have been taken to prevent the strike spreading; whether a compulsory investigation under the Industrial Disputes Act has been applied for, and if so, will it be granted?
