Mr. A. L. BEAUBIEN (Provencher):

I desire to ask a question 'based on the following despatch from New York which appeared in the morning edition of the Ottawa Citizen:

Police to-day quelled a disturbance by five hundred men and boys -who stormed the twelfth floor offices of a downtown concern in answer to newspaper advertisement for a sixteen dollar a week job.

Will the Minister of Immigration and Colonization (Mr. Forke) be kind enough to ask his officials at the border to notify any Canadians, who intend going to the United States after hearing this debate, of the terrible unemployment situation in that country?

Mr. WILLIAM DUFF (Antigonish-Guys-borough):

In view of the fact that Nova Scotia fishing vessels are now being equipped with radio receiving sets, and further in view of the fact that the main portion of the fleet will sail next week, is it the intention of the government to open the Louisburg station immediately to broadcast weather reports and other news, and if so, when?

Pierre-Joseph-Arthur Cardin (Minister of Marine and Fisheries)

Liberal

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

That broadcasting station has not yet been opened because we have not received the equipment. We did not buy the equipment because no information had come to us that the fishermen were ready to instal receiving sets on their vessels. But lately representations have been made by the fishermen that they are ready to instal receiving sets on their vessels. We have therefore ordered the necessary equipment for that station, and as soon as that equipment is received and installed we will start broadcasting weather conditions from that station.
