Henry Herbert Stevens

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. H. H. STEVENS (Vancouver Centre):

I should like to draw to the attention of Your Honour and the government question No. 12 which, it has been asked, should stand as an order for return. I submit, with all due deference to the Minister of Labour, that this is not a question properly calculated to be answered by a return. The answers are all very short and simple. I am not asking for a list of names or anything of that kind; I want simply the number. I should like to urge the government that the question should be answered in due course. I am not seeking to inconvenience the minister, but it does not seem to me a question to be answered by a return.

PRIVILEGE-MR. BOYS


On the orders of the day:


CON

William Alves Boys

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. W. A. BOYS (North Simcoe):

On a question of privilege I would like to refer to an editorial which appeared in the Vancouver Daily Sun under date of March 4. My comments are somewhat belated, but I received this in the mail only yesterday from a friend. The editorial which is headed "Patronage Gone Mad" is in part as follows:

The announcement by the Tolmie government of British Columbia that W. A. Boys, K.C., former Conservative whip, has been appointed to assist Leon J. Ladner, K.C., in handling British Columbia's freight rate problem, comes as a shock, and would appear to be an admission that the government fears that Mr. Ladner, 78594-58

on account of his inexperience in such matters may not be able to properly handle the case alone. Just why the government of British Columbia should have to go outside of this province and go to the east to get a lawyer to represent it in the all-important matter of freight rates, is a question which every business man in Vancouver should ask himself.

Then follow two or three other paragraphs which I need not read, but I will read the last one:

The government has now not only appointed Leon J. Ladner, K.C., of British Columbia, to represent it, but has also appointed W. A. Boys, K.C., of Ontario. Surely this is patronage gone mad.

I regret that no such honour has come to me. I have not been retained in any capacity whatsoever by the British Columbia government in connection with freight rates or anything else. I took the trouble to make inquiry as to the basis of this editorial, and I found that the services of Mr. A. C. Boyce, until recently a member of the Dominion railway commission, have been secured. Instead of the Vancouver Daily Sun criticizing this as "patronage gone mad," I think the government of Doctor Tolmie should be congratulated upon securing the services of such an eminent and able counsel as Mr. A. C. Boyce.

I would ask the representative of the Vancouver Daily Sun in the press gallery to make the necessary correction, and also to see that it receives, at all events, as much publicity as the editorial complained of.
