Well, the facts are there. The Canadian Pacific Railway knew they would have accommodation. Of course the Harbour Commissioners have already built two low level wharfs, but we are building a magnificent high level wharf that will accommodate the trade. I altogether share the views of my hon. friend (Mr. Monk) that it is a great pity that the port of Montreal has not been equipped sooner, but we are now making up for lost time. I am bound to say that the works are progressing, though perhaps not as fast as I would like them to progress. I hope and trust that these improvements will be completed in the centre of the harbour, the main works, at the close of the present season. Then the equipment of the wharfs will have to be attended to.
