Joseph Henry Harris

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. HARRIS:

Mr. Chairman, the minister has made reference to the great lakes and to the city of Toronto, and before this vote is passed I would like to refer to the complaints which have been made as to the inspection service of passenger boats on the great lakes and the inadequate supply of rafts and lifesaving apparatus on those boats. Some of the boats are from twenty to thirty years old and they are still carrying very heavy passenger lists across the great lakes. Perhaps the minister would make a few observations with regard to this particular inspection service over which he has control and as to the adequacy of the life-saving apparatus on these vessels.
