Ernest Edward Perley

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. E. E. PERLEY (Qu'Appelle):

I
should like to direct a question to the Minister of Mines and Resources (Mr. Crerar). It is based on a report that I have received setting out the unfortunate situation facing the halfbreeds of the Marieval district north of Broadview and tributary to the Crooked Lake reserve. The report states that these people have no land and no prospect of employment. Such relief as they have been receiving will be cut off at the end of March, and they claim that they are now facing starvation. Has the minister been made acquainted with this situation, and will he have an investigation made and action taken?
