Apparently the boat has
not been needed. I would not like to be taken as minimizing the importance of the lifesaving service. I quite agree with the hon. member for Richmond-West Cape Breton and the hon. leader of the opposition that it is important to have life-saving facilities even if they are not used, because of the greater confidence and the greater sense of security they give to navigators and the crews of vessels. They feel that there is something there to take care of them if an accident does come.
