Francis Henry Keefer

Unionist

Mr. KEEFER:

Anyone who has been there and remembers the roadway across to the Royal Military College will

understand. It is a causeway across the water; it had to be built and made permanent. It is not a road in the city or anything of that nature; it connects across to the Royal Military College.

The vote we are asking will pretty well cover the work that will be done this year. The contract will hardly be finished by this time next year.

Mr. McCURDY:

This is for repairs to the west breakwaters, covering three lengths of 496, 134 and 31 feet, respectively, which were severely damaged by storms. This is a very important port, and the works cannot be allowed to go into disrepair.
