Estey, who had been elected a Liberal member in the election, told him that he would take care of the problem and he did. Jackett got a new job in the basement of the building, delivering mail and running errands. There was a tradition that the Saskatchewan Rhodes scholars were looked after until they left for Oxford, no matter what, and in Jackett's case the tradition was honoured.
