EMPLOYMENT OF IMMIGRANTS


On the Orders of the Day:


LAB

William Irvine

Labour

Mr. WILLIAM IRVINE (East Calgary):

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Immigration arising out of a telegram which I received from the Trades and Labour Council of Calgary, as follows:

Calgary Trades and Labour Council informed that forty men who were sent by the Calgary Labour bureau to Raymond sugar beet fields found that there were no jobs for them as the C.P.R. had placed immigrants recently arrived from Europe for this work. Please investigate.

I should like to ask the Minister of Immigration if the information contained in this telegram is correct, and if so, whether he thinks it is a wise policy to follow?
