Mr. ANGUS MacINNIS (Vancouver East):

Mr. Speaker, before we proceed to the orders of the day I rise to ask leave to move the adjournment of the house for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent public importance, namely, the taking of a strike vote to-morrow, November 8, in certain mines in the Kirkland Lake district in the province of Ontario. The vote has been ordered by the Minister of Labour under the provisions of order in council, P.C. 7307, dated September 16, 1941. The application of the provisions of this order which has been proposed by the minister in this case will, if carried out, further intensify industrial unrest in this industry and threaten industrial peace throughout the country, with consequent harm to our war effort.
