Wesley Ashton Gordon (Minister of Immigration and Colonization; Minister of Labour; Minister of Mines)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON:

The policy or plan of immediate relief will be largely determined by the position in which the provinces find themselves and by the representations that they may make to the dominion government for help. Upon their representations will largely depend the course of the government with respect to assistance to them. With regard to works that are purely federal, the plans are under consideration by the government and are not yet in such shape that they can be submitted to the house.
