Mr. Hazen Argue (Assiniboia):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. Has the minister received a letter from Mr. W. Danyk, secretary treasurer of the Canadian National Railways system employees' local federation of Edmonton, Alberta, in which he strongly protests the nation-wide lay-offs of employees scheduled to be implemented on March 17, 1961 by the Canadian National Railways? If so, is the minister of the opinion that this drastic action contemplated by the C.N.R. is contrary to the assurances of reinstatement of employment given by the minister during the discussion of Bill No. C-45?
