Hugh Guthrie (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GUTHRIE:

I am not going into the
question of whether these men had wrongs or grievances. Personally I do not think they had. I agreed with the statement made last week in the house that the movement was under communistic leadership. A very large proportion of the men now at Regina never were in the relief camps at all. It is stated that ouit of the 2,000 odd, over 800 were mere stragglers who joined in the march, who were never in relief camps and do not want to go into thjem now. I think I have given a fairly full statement of the situation as it now exists.
