Scope and content

Fonds consists of two items prepared by Andrew Hicks, MPP for Huron South and member of the United Farmers of Ontario party, in 1923: a 21 page manuscript; and an incomplete typed transcription (5 pages) of a speech.

The speech summarizes Hicks' views of the United Farmers of Ontario's position in government and condemns his own party leader, Premier Ernest C. Drury, for trying to amalgamate the U.F.O. Party with part of the Liberal Party.

Hicks delivered the speech in the Ontario Legislature on April 11, 1923. The following day Premier Drury called a general election for June 25, 1923 where the U.F.O Party was defeated by the Conservative Party. Andrew Hicks lost the nomination as the U.F.O candidate for the South Huron riding and therefore did not run.

Both the handwritten speech and typed pages are on official Legislative Assembly paper. The typed pages correspond to but are not identical to the handwritten draft.
