Mr. LOGAN:

Of course I believe it. If I did not believe it I would not make the statement. But, Mr. Chairman, the vote before the House is for a breakwater for the benefit of the fishermen on the coast of New Brunswick. All that is asked for here is a vote of $50,000. We are told by the member for the county that if this breakwater is built it will probably mean that there will be a million dollars worth of fish caught and brought into Canada. What is the hope of Canada? The hope of Canada lies in found money, whether we find it in the sea, in the soil, in the mine, or in the forest. That is the great hope of our country, and that is why we do not wish to travel the via dolorosa we hear talked about so much

Supply-Harbours and. Rivers

in the far corner of the House. We have faith in the future of Canada because we know the natural resources are here from which we can secure the riches that will ensure the prosperity of this country in the future. We have in eastern Canada great fisheries. Instead of having a production of eight or ten million dollars from the sea we should have a production of fifty or sixty million dollars from that source-found money for Canada. If fishermen go out and catch a million dollars worth of fish, and bring those fish to shore and sell them in a foreign market it means a million dollars added to the wealth of Canada. These fishermen are men who deserve our sincere sympathy. If my hon. friends who live on the golden prairie plains knew exactly what hardships these men suffer I think they would have more sympathy with them than they have to-night. I expect that in a few days-at any rate I hope before this session closes-there will be a proposition to provide railway facilities to open up the great Peace river country. It does not interest me directly, I come from away down by the sea where the fishermen live, but I will support the proposition because it means a better and a bigger Canada. I would ask hon. gentlemen to-night to take the same view that I take in reference to the Peace river, and not vote to reduce this amount for the building of what, after all, is a necessity to the fishermen who certainly earn their living by the sweat of their brow.

This afternoon we heard a very eloquent and rapid-fire speech from the hon. member for Fort William and Rainy River (Mr. Manion). According to him we may as well put up the shutters
