June 26, 1925

Mr. PELLETIER:

No, it was not a row

boat. I am absolutely sincere in this matter. There are five or six different companies operating on the north shore, and from the 21st of March to the 11th of April sixteen vessels came from the north shore to Matane, with 1,700 passengers. There were no other 322

ports open then. Had it not been for the fact that we had begun the work and the improvements, these men who came across from the north shore to Matane would have starved, for the simple reason that they had been on rations for three weeks. I want to state fairly and squarely what the facts are. I have a report here from the collector of customs which I am willing to show to my right hon. friend if he wishes to see it. If my right hon. friend insists on being pessimistic so far as Matane is concerned, I am ready and willing to discuss this matter with him.

Mr. PELLETIER:

And is my hon. friend repeating it now? Does he realize that at all

Unemployed Immigrants

times, in the Dominion as well as elsewhere, in all large centres we have quite a number of I.W.W.'s, meaning I want work? That is not the fault of the Liberal party or any other party. Let us be fair in this debate.
