Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. POULIOT (Translation):

No, no. The reason I have brought these facts before the house, is because I want French Canadians in Quebec to have fair play; in order that the rights of my compatriots in Temiscouata be recognized throughout Quebec and Canada; in order that all be placed on an equal footing; in order that the poor devil who has incurred expenses, for which the Port Office department is responsible, be fairly dealt with by the minister; moreover, in order to guard the minister against those who call themselves his friends.

Joseph-Alexandre Mercier

Liberal

Mr. MERCIER (St. Henri) (Translation):

You will admit, sir, that expenses were incurred, a transfer agreed upon, which later was cancelled. This man was put to expenses. Was that amount reimbursed to him? It would only be fair, because after all, having received instructions that the transfer would be made, he had his premises fitted up.

Mr. SAUVE (Translation); As far as I can remember a certain amount was offered to Mr. Jean and he accepted it. I think the question is being settled.

Mr. ST. PERE (Translation): He compromised.
