It will belong to the public. The title will be in the Crown. It was under the control of the Minister of Marine and Fisheries. But, of course, that will be looked into carefully to see that the title is in the Crown. The Department of Marine, I believe, own the island. They have taken it under expropriation. I think this would be the foreshore extending out from the shore of the river to the island, but, of course, we will look into that carefully before expending the money.
The reason I ask the minister about this is that there is an impression that a large amount of the work that has been done by the Department of Public Works at Dalhousie has been for the benefit of the Dalhousie Lumber Company.
Most of the dredging which was done at Dalhousie last year was done along the wharf frontage of the Dalhousie Lumber Company. I wa3 informed that the Minister of Public Works is a stock holder of the Dalhousie Lumber Company. Perhaps the minister will deny that?
