March 27, 1936

Mr. C. G. MacNEIL (Vancouver North):

On Wednesday last I directed a question to the Postmaster General (Mr. Elliott) with reference to forty-five Japanese, Canadian citizens, many of whom are ex-service men formerly employed with the Union Steamship Company and who have been denied reinstatement following an industrial dispute last June. It is now stated by the management that the present government will not permit reinstatement on the ground that they are orientals and that such reinstatement might involve the loss of mail contracts. I now desire to ask the Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Euler) whether any such stipulation is made with regard to subventions or subsidies granted the Union Steamship Company.

Mr. C. G. MacNEIL (Vancouver North):

I wish to direct a question to the Postmaster General (Mr. Elliott). A statement has been made in Vancouver that forty-five Japanese, Canadian citizens, many of them ex-service men, formerly employed with the Union Steamship Company, have been denied reinstatement following an industrial dispute last June. It is intimated by the management that the present government will not permit reinstatement on the ground that they are orientals, and that such reinstatement might involve the loss of mail contracts. Has the government made any such stipulation in the awarding of mail contracts to the Union Steamship Company?

Mr. MacNEIL:

Do I understand from the minister that we may expect no more generous provision for the unemployed? I would infer that this legislation contemplates merely economy in the administration of relief, rather than more effective provision than we have known in the past. I understand that in the present resolution the minister contemplates legislation which will have the effect of maintaining measures which have been in force during recent years, I refer to farm placements, the payment of direct relief, and assistance in directions already indicated. Is it not the intention of the government to break new ground almost immediately and to attempt to improve the living conditions under which the unemployed on relief now suffer?
