This amount of money is very well spent. For years past, I remember, the shipping interests have made every effort with the Government to secure a dry dock to accommodate big ships, should an accident occur. Special efforts were made after the disaster to the Bavarian, a large ship which was coming near Quebec when an accident happened, and which could not be repaired on account of lack of a dry dock to accommodate it. Quebec now affords possibly the best harbour in the world, comprising an area of about twelve square miles with a depth of water of about 150 feet. There is no other port in Canada that can boast of having such a fine harbour as that of Quebec. Will the minister express his opinion as to the possibility of utilizing such a nice harbour as Quebec harbour as a free port?
