UNION STEAMSHIP COMPANY


On the orders of the day:


CCF

Charles Grant MacNeil

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. C. G. MacNEIL (Vancouver North):

I wish to direct a question to the Postmaster General (Mr. Elliott). A statement has been made in Vancouver that forty-five Japanese, Canadian citizens, many of them ex-service men, formerly employed with the Union Steamship Company, have been denied reinstatement following an industrial dispute last June. It is intimated by the management that the present government will not permit reinstatement on the ground that they are orientals, and that such reinstatement might involve the loss of mail contracts. Has the government made any such stipulation in the awarding of mail contracts to the Union Steamship Company?
