QUEBEC ELECTION

PRESS REPORT OF STATEMENT OF MR. DUMOULIN AS TO EXEMPTIONS FROM MILITARY SERVICE


On the orders of the day:

Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct the attention of the Minister of Justice -and perhaps, as he is not in his seat at the moment, he may take this as a notice, and also the Minister of Labour, whose parliamentary assistant is in his seat now and would perhaps take this as a notice-to the desirability of investigating a report which appears in nearly all the newspapers this morning and refers to * mobilization matters in the province of Quebec, and also, I think, touches upon the question of the defence of Canada regulations. This is the statement which I read in the-Canadian press:

Quebec Election

Mr. Dumoulin, member of the legislative assembly for Montmorency for the last five years-

And who is Liberal candidate.

-was quoted as saying

Mr. GRAYDON:

Mr. Dumoulin said:

Go to all parishes of this county and you will see that young men are as numerous everywhere as before the war. I have done everything possible in order that you may forget that there is a war on and that we have got mobilization.

I should like the ministers to investigate that, because it seems to me that, first of all, it is an interference with the mobilization regulations, and secondly, a breach of the defence of Canada regulations.

Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GRAYDON:

Surely if this question cannot be asked in this house no question can be asked. As leader of the opposition I have the right to ask the government to investigate so serious a statement as this, because four years ago. a prominent .man of the same province was interned' for a similar sort of statement. Perhaps this has not been correctly reported, and I am asking only for an investigation, not that anything be done before inquiry is made.
