Mr. MACDONALD (Richmond):

Are the fishermen paid when the fish are put on board the collection boat, or do they receive their pay after they are landed at the plant of the corporation?

I cannot give my hon.

The Minister of Trade and Commerce (Mr. Malcolm)

Supply-Marine and Fisheries

knows that there is a passenger service between Mulgrave, Ariehat and Petit de Grat, for which service Mr. Hendry is receiving about $15,000 by way of a subsidy. According to Lloyd's register the boat on that service is some twenty-two or twenty-three years of age. She was built of Nova Scotia wood and I do not see any reference in the register of repairs having been made since she was built. Mr. Hendry had another boat, the Prince Albert, which went out of service some time ago, and which must have been twenty-eight or twenty-nine years old. A year or so ago her stern fell out at the port of Mulgrave and she had to be docked for repairs. During last winter this boat sunk at Mulgrave in the strait of Canso with 60 tons of freight. She happened to be at a wharf when she sank, so that no lives were lost.

Mr. MALCOLM:

The statement made by the hon. member as to there being freight on that boat is not borne out by the evidence we have in the department, which is that there was nothing on the boat at all except a few rubber boots. Our information is that there was not freight aboard.

Mr. MALCOLM:

I am afraid my hon. friend will have to take the information we have; I do not think the owners of the boat would give incorrect information.

When they would have a boat of that kind transporting passengers in the strait of Canso, 1 do not think I could take their word.

Mr. MALCOLM:

I am not putting my own opinion against that of my hon. friend; I am giving the opinion of the underwriters who handled the insurance.

Mr. MACDONALD (Richmond):

If the boat carried insurance then the underwriters were the losers. All the old boats in the province of Nova Scotia are being picked up by friends of this government and leased to the

different departments, or they are put into different services under subsidies. The government is paying for public services and we should get wha.t we are paying for. No matter whether these people are friends of one party or of the other, the government should see that we receive the services we are paying for.

Item agreed to. Fish culture, $442,000.

Mr. McRAE:

This'is probably the most important item in .the fisheries estimates. There was an increase of about $175,000 in this vote last year, but I observe that the appropriation has not been increased for this year. I should like to ask the minister if there has been any increase in the work, or if it is remaining stationary.

Mr. CARDIN:

A program of expansion in the fish culture service is being systematically carried out. A portion of the appropriation is being set aside for the construction of new hatcheries and improvements in the existing hatcheries. In the last year four new hatcheries were completed at a cost of $127,774, as

follows:

Alberta

Lesser Slave Lake $46,714

Nova Scotia

Yarmouth $37,456

Antigonish 32,666

New Brunswick

Florenceville $10,938

Owing to the necessity of maintaining and operating these hatcheries, less money is available for construction for 1929-30. It is 'anticipated, however, that it will be possible to carry out the following building project: Windsor Hatchery, Windsor, N.S.

Salmon and trout $30,000

Northern Saskatchewan,

Pickerel and perch 40,000

Anderson, Lake Seton, B.C.

Soekeye salmon 15,000

Shuswap Lake, B.C.

Soekeye salmon 25,000
