June 9, 1938 (18th Parliament, 3rd Session)


Richard Bedford Bennett (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)


I was not going to give the signature, but I will:
I am a war veteran without pension. It is almost impossible to get work because I am not a Liberal, and am about to be put on the street for arrears in rent. I would like to ask if there is any possible way of you be able to help us by your influence to obtain work of some kind to enable my family to be able to have a home without being put out,, because relief won't pay rent when we are out of work.
Yours very truly,
R. E. Rollands,
23 Elgin Street, Kingston.
And there are other letters here from Kingston to the: same effect. Some of them have asked me to say this, but that I should not use their names, because Ithe effect of it would be that they would lose any possible chance of any kind to get anything to do. These are not isolated cases; I could give others. I also have a file -as large as this in regard to Saskatchewan. [DOT]
