Mr. CHISHOLM (Inverness):
There is a large amount of money expended on this particular work, not too large, I admit, and I would like to ask if careful attention is paid to the appointment of officers in charge of these establishments. I have in mind a particular hatchery in Nova Scotia where the department appointed a man as superintendent two years ago. I cannot conceive of this man being a proper person for the position inasmuch as he is seventy years old. I would expect a man filling a position of such importance to have at least reasonable youth to his credit.
