April 16, 1923 (14th Parliament, 2nd Session)


George Gibson Coote



Mr. Speaker, I would draw the attention of the Prime Minister to a despatch in the local papers from Vancouver dated April 10th, stating that a letter of protest has been sent to the Prime Minister by the Vancouver Board of Trade in which it characterizes recent statements of Hon. F. B. Carvell, Chief Commissioner of Railways, regarding the attitude of the province of British Columbia toward the freight rate question as showing disregard for the ethics of his position. Has the Prime Minister received this letter? If so, will he be good enough to lay it on the table of the House for the information of members?
