Mr. D. D. MACKENZIE (Cape Breton North):
I wish to bring to the notice of the Minister of Militia a matter about which I have received communications from different parts of the country. He need not answer me now, unless he thinks proper, as I had no opportunity of giving him notice that I was going to take this matter up this morning. The communications I have received complain about the eternal worrying of people in every town and village by police constables in regard to so-called defaulters. Now that we have peace practically signed, when are we going to have peace among ourselves, and when are those fellows to be called off or some effective action taken to put an end to this eternal worrying of our people?
Major-General MEWBURN (Minister of Militia and Defence): So far as the Department of Militia is concerned, we have no police constables taking action against defaulters. I do not wish " to pass the buck," but I am afraid I will have to ask the Acting Minister of Justice to deal with my hon. friend's question.
