Progressive Conservative

Mr. BLACK (Yukon):

I should like to say to the Minister of Labour that my information, received not later than this morning, is that there is a great surplus of men seeking employment in the lumber woods-far more than the operating lumber companies can employ, and that the unemployment situation
there is being aggravated by the discharge of many men from the army who do not belong in British Columbia and who did not enlist from that province. They should be sent to-where they enlisted or where they belong, rather 'than be permitted to aggravate the situation in British Columbia.
