CON

John Allister Currie

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CURRIE:

There is no greater danger in this House than the presence of the hon. member (Mr. Macdonald), sitting here as he does, representing these coal interests, and yet he challenges the high cost of living. The people have paid high prices for coal in his own province and in Montreal. And why? Because the coal is charged for at two or three times former prices. But is the coal miner getting double or three times the pay he got before? No. The statements of the companies for which the hon. gentleman is solicitor show that he knows it.

Topic:   IN COMMITTEE OF SUPPLY.
