Mr. EULER:

The minister stated that these appointments can b'e made by the Government only on the recommendation of the Civil Service Commission. Has the Government discretion to accept or reject the recommendations that may be so made, and could they continue to reject them until a recommendation was made that was satisfactory to them?

Mr. EULER:

Before we leave harbours _ and rivers in Ontario, I note that there is no appropriation included here for repairs to the wharf, or dredging in the harbour at Port Dover, or what should be the harbour of Port Dover. Port Dover is not in my constituency, but the improvement of that harbour will affect very materially the cities and towns north of that point right up into Waterloo county, including Brantford, Galt, Kitchener, Waterloo, Elmira, and. various others. The minister will recollect that two or three weeks ago

a large delegation of manufacturers and others from central western Ontario had an interview with him and pressed this upon him. The minister very kindly promised to take the matter into his consideration, but I find no appropriation and I would like to ask him whether he has looked into the matter further and whether we may expect anything in the Supplementary Estimates. The object of the request for the improvement of this particular harbour is this: Within the last two or three years a very efficient railway has been constructed from Galt to Port Dover. It is proposed to use that road for the carrying of coal. Coal can be brought directly across Lake Erie to Port Dover and distributed to the industrial towns and cities of central Western Ontario, including those which I have mentioned. As the committee knows, the cities and towns of central Western Ontario are very largely of an industrial nature. They are great manufacturing centres, and coal is absolutely necessary. During the last few years, and especially last winter, we have had a great deal of difficulty in obtaining coal, and we obtain it at a much greater cost than would be necessary if this harbour were placed in such a condition that coal could he brought across the Lake, discharged at Port Dover and then transported northward to these centres by this new road. The people of that section do not ask for any unnecessary capital expenditures, but they do ask that that harbour be put in such a condition, if only for the coming season, that it will facilitate the bringing in of coal at a much less cost. If the minister can give us any assurance on that point -possibly he has-he will remedy a very trying situation in Western Ontario. I cannot see from these Estimates that Ontario especially central western Ontario- is enjoying the expenditure of a great deal of money in matters of this kind. Port Dover offers the very best facilities for harbour purposes on the northern shore of Lake Ontario.
