Mr. CARVELL.

Yes. There were representatives at the committee of the Boom Company, the riparian owners, the anglers and the fishermen. There was one change made at the request of some of the members of the committee, but all the others were made at the request of the interested parties, and when the Bill left the committee there was a thorough understanding among all the parties concerned. I may state that after consulting with Mr. Speaker, in whose county these works will be located, I propose to make two very slight amendments. One is to provide that there shall be no question that the man who rafts his logs will have the right to run them down the river without interference, and will not have to pay any charges, and the section 26 dealing with the expropriation of lands and rights. With these two slight amendments the Bill is now perfectly satisfactory to all parties concerned who are represented, and I think that all parties imaginable were represented before the committee either in person or by counsel.

Topic:   RESTIGOUCHE LOG DRIVING AND BOOM COMPANY.
