Frank Broadstreet Carvell (Minister of Public Works)

Unionist (Liberal)


Last year our whole plan was disorganized by the loss of the dredge Cape Breton. Moreover, we had a dredge that was to do some of this work along the coast and then proceed to Yarmouth, but the demand came for the construction of the hydroplane station at North Sydney and the dredge was taken there and remained there during the latter part of the season. There is a dredge now in New Brunswick; it is fitted up and ready to start on Alonday morning to do some of this work. It is to go to Sydney and Bras d'Or and also to North Sydney. It is our intention, unless someumK>' happens that we cannot foresee,
to carry out during the present summer all the work to which my hon. friend has referred.
