June 26, 1925

Mr. PELLETIER:

I state that companies are operating on the north shore, and they want to have their goods come through Matane. Everybody knows, except my right hon. friend apparently, that Matane existea before I came here. Apparently he did not know that.

Mr. PELLETIER:

It might be half down but neither my right hon. friend nor I can prevent rough weather. The work was done according to the plans and specifications, and I am not to blame for that, nor do I blame my right hon. friend. At the same time I want to see that district developed, and I endeavour to do the best I possibly can to come to the assistance of all concerned. Matane was the first harbour to open in March. On the 21st of March the first 'boat came into Matane.

Mr. PELLETIER:

Suppose the department was responsible for the delay? My hon. friend says that the Canadian National Railways will be losing on the transportation of pulpwood; but are we not making up the difference in having a harbour at Matane to accommodate traffic coming from the north shore? The traffic is better now than it was prior to the time the work was begun.

Mr. PELLETIER:

They are carrying

goods and passengers. The hon. member referred to the amount paid to the Boulangers. There is no doubt whatever that the damage was due to the storm we had last fall. But who is to blame? It was simply an act of God and the damage must be repaired.
