PC

William McLean Hamilton

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Hamilton (Notre Dame de Grace):

That may be Liberal government policy but it is not one with which we on this side of the house agree, and I think the sooner they know it the better. You do not have to do it. There is absolutely no reason for it, because hotel operations in Canada have demonstrated that we have the stuff to do the job. The Royal York, the biggest hotel in the empire, uses Canadian people, and it is an extremely well- run hotel. It was only two or three months ago that a young man who had entered the service of the hotel in the capacity of secretary to the general manager was himself appointed general manager of the entire, great Royal York hotel.
There was Dave Mulligan, another Canadian who, unfortunately, died a few months
2462 HOUSE OF
Committee on Railways and Shipping ago. He was known nationally and internationally as the grand old man of the hotel business. He owned and operated some of the greatest and largest hotels in the United States, but .he started off in Canada.
