Canada should be willing to share some of the responsibilities that are being borne by other nations in the care of refugees, J.S. Woodsworth, Cooperative Commonwealth Federation leader, declared today in Parliament. Mr. Woodworth referred to a telegram by Senator Carine Wilson, Liberal, to Prime Minister Mackenzie King urging that this country take a certain share of responsibility for refugees. Mr. King, who was in the House at the time, made no comment.
