Yes, that is the very thing I had in mind. We may be told of course that as the session is not yet over there is still some prospect in that regard; but from all the information that is available, things do not look very promising. Under these circumstances I do not think I should be doing anything but what might be reasonably expected of me if I protested very strongly against so large a vote for the Welland canal. I move therefore that item 111 for the Welland ship canal construction be reduced by $5,000,000.
