Mr. LAVIGUEUR:

Just let me follow
up my argument. Over $2,500,000 was spent on the St. Charles river, but when the Tory government came into power in 1911 they saw fit to suspend this work and since that time the greater part of the work done has been destroyed. The citizens of Quebec are very anxious that this work should be proceeded with, and I understand that at a banquet in Quebec not long ago Mr. Tasche-reau said that this work should be proceeded with and that his government would certainly contribute to the cost. More than that, the city council of Quebec would be quite willing to share the cost. I think this fact should be mentioned and the government asked to continue the work which they undertook to carry out under a written agreement between the city of Quebec and the federal government.
