Samuel Simpson Sharpe

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. SHARPE (Ontario).

What my hon. friend from Parry Sound says is that the excuse the minister gave for not voting money for a building in a place like Parry Sound with a population of four or five thousand was that there was not money enough to go around, and my hon. friend asked why not pick out those places where the public interest demands public expenditure and not spend the public money in places where it is much less needed. Why
pick out two or three places in South Ontario to be especially favoured and then give no buildings at all where the public interest requires them?
