His entry was set aside and the commission was awarded to William Thomas of Toronto.

The Toronto firm of Stewart & Strickland were one of the 16 original competitors who submitted a design for this key institutional work in October 1880. A second-stage competition was held in February 1881, with revised plans sent in by 6 architects, but this list did not include the submission by Stewart & Strickland. The designs from 3 finalists were later rejected and the project was handed to Richard Waite of Buffalo, N.Y. (OA, RG15, S-6, Box 2, File 138, competition for the Parliament Buildings)
