In Ontario, too- cut off very close to the shoulder, with only 30 days' notice given me and not even the semblance of an investigation. This was done by a gentleman whom a number of hon. members know, W. R. Smythe, exmember of Parliament for East Algoma, a gentleman employed a little later, and still employed, at a salary of some $4,000 per annum. He was appointed in October, just previous to the election. I understand he refused to go into East Algoma to support my opponent, Mr. Nicholson, unless he got the appointment. Within a week or two after, he got the appointment from the late government-and yet there was no patronage!
