Right Hon. L. S. Si. Laurent (Prime Minister):
Mr. Speaker, I can assure the hon. member for Temiscouata that the government wishes all Canadians to be treated alike, and that, under conditions which require aid, immediate instructions are given to all federal services to provide as much emergency aid as they can. The Minister of National Defence will state what has been done since news was received of the fire.
