May 3, 1928 (16th Parliament, 2nd Session)


George Spotton

Conservative (1867-1942)


I hesitate to add to the discomfort of the Minister of Public Works, and I am not going to discuss this particular item. However, all these items have been rolling through and I have not noticed any appropriation for a post office in the village of Brussels in the riding of North Huron, which was most urgently needed in the first few weeks of September last. I am not accusing the Minister of Public Works of promising this post office, but I did call upon him and upon the Prime Minister through the press to say to the people in my riding that money would be provided where needed regardless of any political consideration. A number of years ago the government purchased a site in Brussels on which stood a building unfit even for a common livery stable.
