He was not prepar- ed to stand by the interview but would stand by his letter to the Col- onist. The interview was so hopelessly mixed that he had asked the Colonist to make a correction but the correc- tion was as bad as the original inter- view.

Mr. Bordon also asked why the uditor general was not called before ustice commission to testify egarding the administration of the narine department.
