Mr. QUINN:

May I say a word at this point, since the hon. member for Shelbume-

Yarmouth (Mr. Ralston) has mentioned a case in Halifax? He referred to the Sambro work. That contract was given out by tender and the contractor who was awarded the job is a Liberal. I have had several complaints from the people who live right in the district in which the work is going on, that this contractor gave all the work to Liberal friends from outside while men in the district of Sambro and the adjoining district of Camper-down were idle.

Mr. QUINN:

The hon. member for Shel-burne-Yarmouth conveyed the impression, whether intentionally or not, I cannot say, that this work was being done at Sambro and only Conservatives who were brought in from outside were being employed. I may say further that a contract was awarded only last year at Camp Hill and the local Liberal member for Halifax was awarded it. There was no politics in that case.. I had complaints

Public Works Program

about that very same matter, but I have no jurisdiction over it nor could I do anything in regard to it. The contract was let by public tender and this man was the lowest tenderer. They were all Liberals who were employed on the job.
