I was going to add a
word to what the hon. Minister of Labour said in connection with unemployment. I have in my hand a clipping from a paper which says:
Fourteen hundred men wanted to do harvest work on
Wages from four to five dollars a day.
Still remain 150 men walking the streets of Winnipeg unemployed.
Does * that look as if these people want to work? There is always a certain class of people who will not work, no matter what ithe conditions are. I am rather surprised this afternoon to hear some of my friends to my right apeak on this question. One class of them says that the immigration is all going to the United States. The hon. member for Burrard (Mr. Clark) wants the government to put in force legislation to enable these people to come back. I think if the people are coming back to take up citizenship in Canada again to the extent that the hon. member for Burrard suggests, it speaks volumes for this government.
