John Douglas Hazen (Minister of Marine and Fisheries; Minister of the Naval Service)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HAZEN:

I do not think there is any advantage in discussing this matter very much further, but the facts as they are disclosed by the records in our department are these: Le Blanc was a sailor on board the Canada, he had been on board for about two months, the boat was in Montreal, he was taken ill and he died of natural causes and not in consequence of any injury he had received while in the service of the Government of Canada. He died in the Hospital in Montreal, after receiving all proper medical attention, he was a Roman Catholic in religion and he was buried according to the rites of the Roman Catholic church, in the cemetery at Montreal.
