Mr. McCURDY:

My hon. friend knows

this place is situated on the Ottawa river four miles from the Petawawa railway station. The memo. I have in regard to it reads as follows:

The traffic on the wharf is most extensive from June to September, during which period the steamboat operating' between Pembroke and lies Joachims calls twice daily. It is used also to a considerable extent by pleasure launches and the tow boats, tugs and alligators engaged in lumbering operations on the Ottawa River. The traffic over the wharf, in addition to passengers, consists chiefly of baggage, camping equipment and provisions for the people who summer in the locality. The vehicular traffic on the wharf has been limited during the last two or three years, in all probability due to its condition.

The description goes on to say the wharf is in an unsafe condition and dangerous for pedestrians. The Militia Department also requests that this wharf be repaired.
