John Dowsley Reid (Minister of Customs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. REID:

That is not the question I am discussing. They went further, they came here to Ottawa and formed a Board. How many men did they take from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick for that Board? The first man was Mr. Campbell, the deputy minister, who is from the province of Ontario. They wanted another man. Did they go to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick? They took Mr. Caron from the city of Ottawa, who had never run a railway in his life. They wanted another man to make up the Board. Did they go to the Intercolonial? Did they take an operating man? No, they went to the Grand Trunk and took Mr. Tiffin.
