Mr. LAVIGUEUR:

Just let me follow

up my argument. Over $2,500,000 was spent on the St. Charles river, but when the Tory government came into power in 1911 they saw fit to suspend this work and since that time the greater part of the work done has been destroyed. The citizens of Quebec are very anxious that this work should be proceeded with, and I understand that at a banquet in Quebec not long ago Mr. Tasche-reau said that this work should be proceeded with and that his government would certainly contribute to the cost. More than that, the city council of Quebec would be quite willing to share the cost. I think this fact should be mentioned and the government asked to continue the work which they undertook to carry out under a written agreement between the city of Quebec and the federal government.

Mr. LAVIGUEUR:

Is it the intention of the government to consider the question of the railway terminus in the city of Quebec at the same time as they consider the terminus in the city of Montreal, which is asking $50,000,000 for said terminus according to the Palmer report?

Mr. H. E. LAVIGUEUR (Quebec-Mont-morency):

My first words in the debate will be to congratulate the Hon. Mr. Lemieux, Speaker of the house, upon the great success he achieved in Europe again this year, especially at La Sorbonne -Where he delivered a series of lectures. He did honour to this house, to Canada and principally to his race. We are proud of his achievements.

The Budget-Mr. Lavigueur

This year we have in the house four new members, two on each side, who have replaced four very prominent former members. There is the hon. member for West Lam'bton (Mr. Gray) who has replaced the late Mr. Goodison; also the hon. member for Joliette (Mr. Ferland) who has replaced Mr. Denis who has accepted a judgeship. The hon. member for Joliette is a bright young man who, I am sure, will be a great success in parliament. I take much pleasure in tendering my congratulations to the hon. member for Victoria, B.C. (Mr. Plunkett) who has replaced the distinguished ex-Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Tolmie; also to the hon. member for West York (Mr. Lawson) who has replaced Sir Henry Drayton.

I wish to express my deep regret for the incident that occurred in the provincial legislature in the city of Quebec when an attempt was made upon the life of the Hon. Mr. Taschereau.
