Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BURRELL.

I hope there will be no relaxation of effort to improve this navigation. It is an important stretch of water, especially in view of the country opening up round. Fort George, and I should like very, much to see that work expedited. Has anything been done in the way of an inspection by government engineers of the Fraser between Lytton and Quesnel? There are large stretches of water there on which navigation could be made perfectly effective with perhaps very little expenditure. I have been asked to urge strongly on the minister to have this done, and would ask him to have the government engineer report on the general condition of the Fraser to see if the water highway between Lytton and Quesnel could not be made more useful.
