Mr. LAFORTUNE:

The hon. member for Dorchester (Mr. Sevigny) stated a moment

ago that, until 1911, Mr. Verville had not asked for any increase of the workingmen's salaries, and the member for Dorchester stated that the Government was going to show its good will by deeds, actual facts. I may state to the hon. gentleman that what the workingmen want is more money, not facts. The hon. member for Maisonneuve made a very good answer, when he said that in 1911 salaries were fair; but that in the meantime have changed to such an extent that what was sufficient then, is now inadequate.
