The legislation proposed by my hon. friend is certainly in the right direction. I would like to inform my hon. friend that the section of the Conservation Commission which has in charge the question of our water-powers is now preparing a Bill very much on the same lines as that of my hon. friend, and is getting information on the subject from different parts of the Dominion and from men experienced in these matters; and as soon as that Bill is finally adopted by that section of the commission, it is intended, with a very brief delay, to lay it before the House.
