It is not altogether right to say that all the work that is being carried on at Montreal is carried on at the expense of the trade. Most of the work, nearly the whole of the work is carried on that way, but my hon. friend (Mr. Monk) will not forget that the government is carrying on in the eastern portion of the harbour a very large work, the contract for which is over $600,000. The same contractors, Messrs. Poupore & Malone are proceeding with that work actively. I have been fortunate enough to be able to convince my colleagues and parliament two years ago of the necessity of starting works in the eastern portion of the Montreal harbour. One of the results has been that the Canadian Pacific Railway are locating an immense establishment in that part of the harbour.
