Mr. P. F. CASGRAIN (Charlevoix-Sague-nay):
I hold in my hand the Montreal Gazette of Thursday, June 13, 1934. On the first page I find this news:
Ottawa relief plan calls for 6 million here. New post office and' custom house in program.
And there follows a report of an interview given by Mayor Camillien Houde to the Montreal trades and labour council and the building trades council in which the mayor is reported as follows:
I understand that most of the items you name are already on the federal program- not the C.N.R. however. In all I think between $5,000,000 and $6,000,000 will be spent here.
I would like to ask the government if the mayor of Montreal had authorization from the government to make such a statement.
