1. Was the Government made aware that the Insurance Company Rimouski Mutuelle had, before its winding up, as alleged, given up a certain proportion of its policies to the York Fire Insurance Company of Toronto and to the Midland Fire Insurance Company of Brandon, Manitoba?
2. Did the Government inspector report on these alleged facts?
3. Is the Government aware that the Company Rimouski Mutuelle is said to have received certain amounts paid by the above mentioned companies and intended to indemnify policyholders who had sustained losses through Are, and that these amounts have been retained by said company for two months at least previous to its being wound up?
4. Is not inspection by the Government intended to prevent such irregularities?
5. Is it the intention of the Government to appoint within a short time, a special inspector with instructions to investigate the management of the Companies Rimouski Mutuelle and Ontario Mutual?
This question was answered yesterday, but I should like to ask the Minister of Finance to look into this matter a little more carefully. Although he said that he was going to appoint a-special inspector, this is a special case and from the public point of view as well as from the point of view of those who sustained losses, I think that an inspector should be appointed. As the Postmaster General 303i
knows, this is a very serious matter from the public point of view in the province of Quebec.
