April 16, 1901 (9th Parliament, 1st Session)

?

The MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS.

That work is composed of 29,000 cubic feet of cribwork at 7 cents a yard. After the 31st December, 1900, the sum of $500, appropriated for 1901, was expended in constructing two blocks of cribwork. one on either side of a little brook or creek which issues at this point. The northern block is

115 feet long, 10 feet wide and 12 feet high; the southern block, 50 feet long, 10 feet wide and from 6 to 9 feet high. Both blocks are of crlbwork well filled with ballast and covered on top with round piles well spiked down. Their object is to replace an old breakwater destroyed many years ago. That is all the explanation I can give as I have not been there myself. My engineers tell me it is a good work, and parliament has voted the money.
Windsor Harbour-Shear dams, training dykes and deepening River Avon, $2,300.
