Mr. JOSEPH READ:

I want to join with other hon. members, especially on this side of the House, in congratulations to the hon. the Minister of Fisheries (Mr. Ballantyne). But I wish to advise him also that he gets a good deal of sympathy, particularly from this side of the House, and to point out to him the reason why that is so. I hold in my hand a paper called the Halifax Herald. I understand this is the personal organ of the right hon. the Prime Minister, but notwithstanding that, it contains one of the most vicious attacks upon my hon. friend the Minister of Marine and Fisheries that I have ever known to be made upon a public servant.

Mr. JOSEPH READ:

I want to draw the attention of the minister to a fact connected with some of these old men who are in positions similar to the position of the pilots of Montreal. A number of men who have been doing this work do not want the young men to come up at all, and absolutely refuse to teach them the trade, and if there are young men in connection with the Montreal pilotage who are old enough and competent enough to obtain a license, I do not see why there should be any limitation. How are they limited? Is it by regulation of the pilot commission or by the pilots themselves, or is there a statutory limit?
