Mr. A. C. CASSELMAN (Grenville-Dundas):

Hon. P. J. A. CARDIN (Minister of Marine and Fisheries):

Answering a question put to me the other day regarding contemplated amendments to the Canada Shipping Act, I said that, as we had made up our minds to introduce next session a complete revision of the act, the government did not propose to bring down any amendments this year. In view of this decision we are hardly in a position to help the hon. member advance the bill he has on the order paper.

Mr. CASSELMAN:

Does the minister

realize that this is the very answer that has been given for a number of years whenever amendments to the act have been proposed?

CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS- ALLEGED PATRONAGE


On the Orders of the Day:


CON

Lewis Wilkieson Johnstone

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. L. W. JOHNSTONE (Cape Breton North-Victoria):

I want to ask the Minister of Railways and Canals (Mr. Dunning) a question based upon a telegram I received this morning:

Grand Narrows, C.N.R. Firms doing construction work on railway here refuse to hire men unless recommended by Liberal leader of this district.

Is the patronage system still in existence in the Department of Railways?

Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Railways and Canals): I have had many

Supply-Public Works

complaints of that nature from this side of the House and there seems to be an impression abroad among members in this quarter that the patronage system is in existence-in the hands of the party opposite. I have no knowledge of the particular instance referred to and can only reply in the words used by the president of the road before the special committee when that question was discussed: I shall be pleased to call the attention of the management of the Canadian National Railways to the particular matter to which the hon. member has referred.

,Mr. MANION: In view of what the

Minister of Railways has said about patronage being in the hands of this party, would he be kind enough to give me the name of someone over here whom I can approach to get appointments for some of my friends?

PELEE ISLAND CABLE AND TELEGRAPH SERVICE


On the Orders of the Day: Mr. ECOLES J. GOTT (South Essex): I desire to ask a question of the Minister of Public Works (Mr. King, Kootenay) in view of the following communication I have received from Pelee island: Dear Sir: Pelee island is still without telegraphic or cable communication. Last week a telegram was sent to me by people who were not aware that the cable was out. It came to Leamington and was sent to the island on the steamer Pelee. It was delivered to me but the boat had left for the mainland and I could not reply. Through this service I lost a considerable amount of money and desire to lodge a complaint with you against this insulting service. I know you are net directly to blame for the inactivity of the department, but it has been stated in circles here- Sou. hon. MEMBERS: Order.
