WAR MUNITIONS AND MATERIALS

PETITION OF CONSTITUENTS OF SASKATOON FOB EMBARGO ON SHIPMENTS TO AGGRESSOR STATES


Mr. A. MacG. YOUNG (Saskatoon): I desire to present a petition which I have received, signed by several hundred citizens in the constituency of Saskatoon. The first paragraph of the preamble reads: Whereas war materials, particularly scrap iron and nickel products, are being constantly sent from Canada to various aggressor nations, especially to Japan, but also to Germany and Italy as well. . . . The prayer of the petition reads: We the undersigned Canadian citizens urgently petition the government of Canada to use its powers under the Customs Act for the purpose of imposing forthwith an embargo upon the shipment of war material to these aggressor states; and we urge the Canadian government to seek the cooperation of other democratic countries in this matter. I would ask the government to give this matter its careful consideration.

Mr. ATEN@

Mr. Speaker, the purport of

the bill is to incorporate an association of all Canadian clubs in Canada. Canadian clubs have been now in existence for thirty years, and it is felt necessary that there should be a central corporation for all Canadian clubs, providing a corporate entity for the purpose of enabling them to receive bequests, and for other purposes. The bill has passed the senate. It will be explained in detail when we come to the committee stage.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
