Mr. E. J. GARLAND (Bow River):

Two or three days ago I directed the attention of the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe) to a petition which had been presented to the Department of Justice, signed by 3,500 persons, asking for clemency in the case of two prisoners now in Prince Albert, Cecil Terriss and Lewis MacDonald, who were convicted as a result of the strike that occurred last year. Has the Minister of Justice considered the petition and, if so, what possible action may be expected in the matter?

Topic:   CLEMENCY FOR PRINCE ALBERT PRISONERS
