This commission had placed an embargo on shipment of coal from Atlantic ports to countries oiitside ot the Unit- ed States and had made n regulation lliEt coal should be shipped to Canada only if the cars would be unloaded within 24 hours. In view ot the fact that the United States had placed an embargo on the eipo'rt of coal to Europe, It was prob- able that Canada must take similar action, if she expecteJ to receive any coal from the United States, said Sir Robert.
