Mr. JEAN FRANCOIS POULIOT (Temis-couata):
Was the importation into Canada of coal, wood pulp, pulpwood, lumber and timber of all kinds, asbestos and furs from the USSR, prohibited by order in council P.C. 463, dated February 27, 1931, for the following reasons: (a) because such country was not a contracting party to the treaty of Versailles, and (b) on account of the documentary and other evidence which had been received by the various departments of the public service in Canada? If so, (a) was the latter objection dropped before Canada signed the telegram dated Geneva, September 15, 1934, inviting the USSR, to enter the League of Nations? (b) Does the former objection still stand since the USSR, have entered the League of Nations?
