Mr. E. J. GARLAND (Bow River):
I wish to direct the attention of the administration and in particular, of the Minister of Labour (Mr. Heenan)-possibly the Minister of Immigration (Mr. Forke) will be interested also-to the following telegram I have received :
E. J. Garland, M.P.,
There are about two thousand mine workers out of work at present in the Drumheller valley. This has caused great distress and we would urge upon you the necessity for parliament taking immediate action to relieve the suffering of these men and their families which fMr. Guthrii*. ]
is growing more intense each passing week in any possible way you may determine.
A. Parker, President,
Secretary Local No. 59 United Mine
Workers of America.
I refer this telegram to the Minister of Labour in the hope that he may be able to find some means of assisting these men in their distressful circumstances.
