It is true that following
the transfer of the resources to the western provinces in 1930 the activities which had been carried on in the Department of the Interior came under review, and it fell to my lot to scrutinize carefully every activity which might be continued by the department. It is true, as the hon. member has stated, that certain employees of these stations received notice that their services might be terminated as of a certain day, but not all the employees of those two stations were so notified. I may say quite frankly that it never was definitely decided that those stations should be closed, but rather that all services were studied in order to ascertain those that should continue to be performed by the Department of the Interior, having regard to the public interest, and what services should be performed by the provinces.
