Charles A. Stewart (Minister of Mines; Minister of the Interior; Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs)


Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil):

I have no
knowledge as to whether the striking post office employees were informed of the contents of that telegram. It was forwarded to the Canadian Federation of Postal Employees at Toronto, who were the head and front of the organized effort in connection with this strike. In addition, the postmasters at Montreal, Toronto, Windsor and Kitchener and other points where the men were on strike were
sent copies of this telegram and instructed to give it the widest publicity. We also endeavoured to secure publicity through the press so that all might be informed. I am sorry if the employees at Montreal were not informed by their chief executive, but I took every step in my povji r to make the matter public.
