Mr. Chairman, I do not think that I would be doing my duty if I allowed this vote to pass without commenting on many of the statements which were made yesterday by the Postmaster General (Mr. Veniot) in defence of his department. It would -take at least two hours to make out the full case and spread it on Hansard. The Postmaster General said that he would deal with a certain number of postmasterships as they came under the Civil Service Aict. He dealt with Haiwkedbury, Alexandria, New Glasgow, Brigden, St. Boniface, Brussels, East St. John, Oliver, Norton, and one or two others. If the Postmaster General made similar misrepresentations with reference to all the other post offices as he did concerning Norton then his argument falls very flat and there is not one word of truth in the utterances of the hon. gentleman with regard to Norton.
