Mr. BENTLEY:

I am glad to hear that, and I am sure the hon. member for Fraser Valley will be glad to hear it also, because

Reclamation oj Marshlands
I thought he rather felt that everything was not being done that could be done, and I thought he should have the support of the committee if he was correct in his assumption that everything was not being done that could be done. If, however, the minister is right and everything is being done that can be done, that will be a source of satisfaction both to the hon. member for Fraser Valley and to other members from British Columbia.
I will not take up more time on this resolution except to say that we sympathize with the people of the maritime provinces and we hope that those who put this measure into effect will be able to do so as expeditiously as possible. We hope they will meet with the success which has attended some of the work of a similar kind done in our part of the country.
