Full Text

The death reported from Calgary of Mr. Wm. Garson, ex-City Controller of Winnipeg, who died in the general hospital at Calgary from pneumonia. The late Mr. Garson represented Lincoln at the Ontario Legislature, being elected in 1886 against Mr. W.B. Towers, and was therefore well known and popular in the county. He was born in the Orkney Islands and came to this country with his parents when quite a young man, settling in Port Dalhousie, and then he came to St. Catharines, where he made his home until a few years ago , when he went to Winnipeg to locate. He was a Liberal candidate here, a fluent speaker and a friend of the labor cause. In business Mr. Garson was a contractor in the building line and was in partnership with Mr. Geo. A. Begy under the firm name of Garson, Percer & Co., which had many large contracts, including the Brockville Insane Asylum, also in Mimico, Orillia, and other places. In addition to this the firm had contracts for several railways, waterworks and other works. - St. Catharines Journal.
