I suppose I must bow to the chair and do so with pleasure. Thera are some other items to which I propose to refer but will do so on some more favourable opportunity. But I would invite the attention of the acting minister to the expenditure of $10,000 at St. Joseph wharf in South Huron and to another expenditure of $25,000 at Glace Bay in Nova Scotia. I hope the acting minister will take some new lessons from this discussion. I nope he will make a new departure in advertising and that he will advertise almost new for work to be done next year, so that if there are not sufficient dredges in this
country at present, parties -wishing to go into the dredging business will have an opportunity of giving their orders so that the dredges may be constructed in Canada. But if they cannot be constructed in Canada, I think the hon. gentleman should allow them to come in from the United States so long as they pay the duty. Having intimated that he was willing to change the advertisement, I would suggest that the hon. minister should take it out altogether and put in the kind of advertisement which will suit this side of the House, and if he does that he will toe acting in the interests of the country and satisfy the electors of his own constituency.
