I think I can give an assurance that he will not be severely criticised from this side of the House. While I do not profess to control members, I think I can give that assurance with every confidence. As to its being a private wharf, the minister is right to a certain extent; it is private owned, but it is used by the public to a very great extent. The advantage to the public would be about sixty cents or seventy cents a ton on all the coal they use. I understand the municipality would go to the expense of putting up a coal shed so that this little bit of dredging, costing $200 or $300, would enable the coal barges to unload right at the wharf. I do not think the minister would be criticised from this side, he certainly would not receive any severe criticism from the people in that locality if he made that expenditure.
