Hon. R. J. MANION (Fort William and Rainy River):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to
draw the attention of the Minister of Justice to the case of Michael O'Leary, who won the
[Mr. MeigheaJ
Victoria Cross at the front and who is, I understand, in gaol in the United States without trial, on some charge, not a very serious one, I believe. I understand that some of the municipalities along the Niagara frontier, or in that neighbourhood, have sent letters asking the Minister of Justice to do anything he can to have the trial expedited. I draw the attention of the Minister of Justice to the matter and ask him, if possible, to do anything he can on behalf of this poor fellow to see that he gets a speedy and fair trial.
