Is my hon. friend the member for Sunbury and Queens (Mr. H. H. McLean) satisfied with that?

Mr. DANIEL.

I am speaking on behalf of the people of Queens and Sunbury, who, I was afraid, had been deluded by these promises made previous to the election. I call the attention of the minister to the fact that these promises have been made, and naturally the people expect him to carry them out.

Mr. H. H. McLEAN.

I am delighted that my hon. friend from St. John (Mr. Daniel) is giving me his assistance in obtaining these necessary public works. I am also highly pleased to hear him state this evening that he thoroughly approves of the policy adopted by the Minister of Public Works in erecting these wharfs, because I understand he joins with me in believing that these wharfs are absolutely necessary for the proper navigation of the River St. John. But I want to remind my hon. friend that he has changed his opinion this session from the opinion he held last session. I want to remind him that when the hon. member for North Toronto (Mr. Foster) stated on the floor of this House that it was a vicious principle to erect at the pub-lie expense wharfs in rivers or lakes, and that the public money should only be expended on wharfs in harbours or on the sea coast, my hon. friend heard that statement and he did not dispute it.

I never heard the hon. member for North Toronto make any such statement, either in this House or out of it.

I have an extract to prove what I say, and if my hon. friend wishes I will give it to him, because I used that extract in speeches in the county of Queens and Sunbury and I used it on nomination day. The statement cannot possibly be denied. As regards the statement made by my hon. friend that he was not present when the hon. member for North Toronto made that statement

If the hon. gentleman rises to a point of order I must, of course, ascertain what it is.

The point of order is that the hon. member for Sunbury and Queens is not discussing the question under consideration. Surely you know that.
