Right Hon. ERNEST LAPOINTE (Minister of Justice):
This inquiry comes just
after my having received a telegram signed by a lady and two gentlemen, saying:
You said that you were going to investigate "Calling Canada." Here is the number of our room at the Chateau Laurier. Please investigate.
It is not my purpose to investigate those highly estimable ladies and gentlemen. But what I said was that I would submit the advertisement in question to my officers, in order to ascertain whether it comes under some of the regulations respecting the Defence of Canada; that is all.
