On the orders of the day:


PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Mr. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Justice in connection with a Canadian Press dispatch dated today relative to two men, Daniel Mooney and Donald Stoffels, who were convicted in Toronto and are at present in Kingston penitentiary serving a two-year sentence. Has the minister received a letter from Magistrate McKeown to the effect that according to the evidence now available these men are indeed innocent? If so, will he immediately have an investigation launched into the question

Inquiries oj the Ministry with a view to having a free pardon granted if the facts are as Magistrate McKeown has stated?

Hon. Stuart S. Garson (Minister of Justice):

The news-gathering facilities of our press are so efficient that the news of this letter has got into the newspapers before the letter itself has actually reached me. I prefer to withhold comment until I have received the letter and learned from it what it is that I would be talking about.
