Mr. FOURNIER (Hull):

The Rustico
problem has given me many a headache. Our engineers did try out some works there, I do not know with what success, but the report which the hon. member makes is not a very good one. At one time I sent down the assistant chief engineer, and his report was that these works were of an experimental nature, and that if they did not answer the purpose a change of plans would be necessary. The department is looking seriously into the situation at Rustico.
The $250,000 for Charlottetown is required toward reconstructing the east side of the railway wharf, widening the wharf, dredging in the east berth and replacing the present frostproof warehouse; total estimated cost, $634,000.
