Mr. HACKETT:

No, it is not. The Oshawa and Windsor factories are not very active at present, and because this factory specializes in a typical kind of product for which there is a limited demand, at present its employees are on short time. There is also another industry in Sherbrooke known as the Fairbanks Scale Company, whose principal product is scales used in grain elevators. Unfortunately the grain business has not been as thriving for the last year or two as it has been in the past, and the construction of grain elevators is not being carried on. In consequence there is not to-day the demand that there has been in the past for scales. Is the government to blame because the people in the west are not constructing grain elevators?
