March 6, 1944 (19th Parliament, 5th Session)

CCF

Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):

Before the business of the house is proceeded with may I say that in the Ottawa Citizen of Saturday, March 4, there appears on page 9 a report of a meeting of the Saskatchewan legislature. In the course of that report Mr. Carl Stewart, member for Yorkton, Saskatchewan, is reported to have said:
I make the charge that Mr. Coldwell, Mr. Castleden and Mr. Feeley have improperly interfered with the board to keep men out of uniform.
Mr. Feeley is a member of the Saskatchewan legislature, and the board referred to is the moboiization board. I wish to say that the charge is wholly false, and comes from a person of whom the present chairman of the mobilization board, Mr. Justice Anderson, said on December 4, 1943, that "people who know Mr. Stewart would not take his criticism too seriously."
