Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. JOHNSTONE:

I think Scatarie island, more than any other island on the Atlantic coast with perhaps the exception of 78594-211
Sable island, is entitled to a life-saving station. I certainly agree with the hon. member for Cape Breton South and the hon. member for Richmond-West Cape Breton that the government should do something at once to provide means there of protecting the lives of the sailors. The sum need not necessarily be a large one. Disasters of all kinds are happening every year and have been happening for many years around that island.
