Mr. BOIVIN:

A timber wharf was built there by the late Government, but to spend $8,000 for a wharf at such a point-I could not let the item go through without calling attention to it. I do not want to move that it be struck out.

Mr. FORTIER:

I am very glad, for the locality greatly needs that wharf. It was commenced five years ago. This is a very important place, and the farmers only have this wharf to carry their products by boat to market at Quebec and Montreal.

Mr. GRAHAM:

Will not that be ' changing the destination of the vote?' It changes it from the North Arm to some other part of the river. I am not going to insist on it, but if I did, Mr. Chairman, you would have to rule it out of order.
