I believe it is all right. We are doing the same thing at Lake Temiscamingue. Suppose instead of building a dredge I should buy shovels and things like that to make the improvements. I think I am justified in getting the dredge.
The minister may be quite justified in building a dredge, but he cannot take the money for that purpose from a vote to improve the channel. The Auditor General would not allow that to pass if he was looking after it, because one of his duties is to see that the money voted by
parliament for a specific purpose is spent for that purpose.
