It was reported "Major Belford has already proven that he is a valuable acquisition to the Conservative Party at Queen's Park. His speech in moving the reply to the address from the throne was of a high standard of excellence and on a plane seldom reached by the elected representatives of the people on such occasions." from "William James Belford", sent to me by Jimmy Belford of Trenton, March 28, 2008.
