William Thoburn

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. THOBURN.

That is all I wish to do, Mr. Speaker. I wish to draw the attention of the House and of the minister to whose department this relates to the statement here made. This newspaper,, with the item marked, was sent to me by the Trades and Labour Council of Carleton Place. I wish that the minister would investigate this case. For it does seem to me hard that, at this season of the year, when a great many of our Canadian mechanics have been idle all winter-especially that class of workmen who are engaged in building ships-they should be deprived of their employment by a horde of mechanics coming in from the United States.
