Wesley Ashton Gordon (Minister of Immigration and Colonization; Minister of Labour; Minister of Mines)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON:

Yes, on my recommendation. I may say there was no division of opinion among the members of the board as to the necessity, for doing it. Prior to that he had made a general survey among and had organized the sales forces of a large agricultural machinery company operating in the three western prairie provinces. He was well acquainted with the' situation with respect to settlers generally and with those in the west particularly.

Mr. DUFF:

Mr. Chairman, if I understand my geography the place from which this gentleman came who was appointed after Colonel Rattray was the town of New Liskeard, which is in the constituency of my hon. friend the minister. In other words he appointed a man from his own constituency and dismissed a good servant of the public who had served overseas.
