Mr. LAVIGUEUR:

If I draw attention to these items, it is not in any spirit of opposition. The Government is perfectly justified in continuing works that were started some years ago. But they should adopt the same policy in regard to works that were begun some time ago on the St. Charles river, in Quebec, and for which a contract has been granted. Not only is that the case, but the Prime Minister (Sir Robert Borden), in 1913, speaking in Quebec, made the declaration that the works on the St. Charles river were of great importance and would be proceeded with. I also think that work in connection with the Transcontinental terminus in Quebec should be continued. The Government have spent millions of dollars on those works, but they have not been touched for a couple of years. Workshops have been erected at a very large cost, but they have not been equipped as was promised in an agreement signed between the Government and the municipal authorities of Quebec. The Government also bought three miles of frontage on the River St. Lawrence at Quebec, for the purpose of the Transcontinental railway, on which they have spent millions. For a small additional outlay these works could be proceeded with and result in great benefit, not only to the city of Quebec but to the whole of Canada. I respectfully call the minister's attention to the fact that if there is money available to proceed with works on the Trent canal in Ontario it is equally .proper that money should be forthcoming for the completion of important undertakings in the city of Quebec which are of national importance.

Mr. LAVIGUEUR:

I am glad that the hon. member for Maisonneuve (Mr. Le-mieux) has raised this question, because it is a very important one for the city of Quebec. I hope the minister will give this matteT his attention, so that passengers may be taken to Quebec across the bridge as suggested.

2. How many civil servants enlisted under that agreement?
