Hugh Guthrie (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. HUGH GUTHRIE (Minister of Justice):

I have had no recent information of any trouble at all in that penitentiary. Some three or four weeks ago I received a report that a disturbance had been planned, at all events, involving some seven or eight prisoners, but nothing serious developed although I may tell my hon. friend that I have received warnings from outside the penitentiary that an effort is being made to stir up trouble there. That came to me through an intercepted communication from outside, and it was back about the beginning of January. No trouble of any kind has occurred there so far.
