I do not wish to be understood as saying that the intention is to have the observatory there, I am not sure, but I think it is in the city of Ottawa. However, I would rather that my hon. friend would ask the Minister of the Interior, who, I know, has been giving the matter a great deal of consideration during the last twelve months. They have a fine observatory in Washington with a magnificent telescope, and are doing good work. For my part I would rather see a modern telescope in this the capital city of the Dominion.
