This was known as Strathcona's Horse. Of its original complement of troopers and non - commissioned officers many were drawn from the old Royal Canadian North West Mounted Police: were crack horsemen and made excellent cavalrymen. To commemorate Lord Strathcona's action it was decided to perpetuate hla regiment by a unit of the permanent force. The western mounted permanent force regiment was selected.

Lt. - Col. i George A. Drew, K.C., leader of the Ontario Conservative party,' said in an interview today in the! Royal Alexandra hotel. I ''Evidence produced before the Royal Commission and the public j accounts committee proved con - 1 clu.sively that the rontract was oh - ! tained by fraud," Col. Drew said, j The promoters have no right to profit by that fraud, particularly! in time of war." j Canadian troops needed light' machine guns urgently, he added, ui.d the best way to assure quick delivery was for the government to take full control without delay of the production of these guns. "That would deprive the stock promoters of the profits they have been obtaining at the public expense and to which they have never been entitled." Pays Whela Cost Every piece of machinery In the: John H.

The only financial outlay ever made by the stock promoters had been the $500 paid on the purchase price of the bankrupt boiler factory where the guns were now being made. The government now had assumed virtual control of the production of Bren guns by sending its own men in to speed up production, Col. Drew said. All It need do now was to take over full control In name by cancelling the contract and relieving the public of the necessity of paying profits to the stock promoters.
