Mr. McISAAC:

Mr. Chairman, why

should the fishermen of the Maritime provinces be compelled to pay a higher price for an inferior article? Every fisherman will tell you that an American engine will last at least twice as long as an engine made in this country, because the former is built to better withstand the action of salt water. It is therefore the fault of such concerns as the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Stevens) refers to that our fishermen will not buy their output. Then why should all the fishermen of Canada be penalized? If our manufacturers had the enterprise to turn out the right quality engine, they would find our fishermen would buy them in preference to the engine built by their American competitors.

Mr. McISAAC:

This is a daily service between Guysborough, the county town, and Mulgrave on the Canadian National, a distance of thirty-five miles. The people of Guysborough town and the surrounding district are satisfied with the service performed. The increase in the subsidy is caused by having the boat call at Queensport, an important fishing centre, and the ferry'trade from that port has largely increased the revenue of the Canadian National Railway in expressage and so forth. The service is now giving every satisfaction to the people along the whole line.
