I would like to ask a question with reference to some immense waterways still further north. As the minister knows, the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific to Fort George westerly is opening up enormous stretches of country and bringing in very heavy settlement, and transportation facilities would be much cheapened if the necessary dredging were done in the Nechaco river. If the minister could see his way to have dredging done on the Nechaco and Stuart rivers, he would be doing a great service to that section of the country. .
