other night that I was in Vancouver Island; I told you my fair-wage officer who went to the Crowsnest Pass in 1910 went to Vancouver Island day after day. I told you I appointed a commissioner; I told you that my deputy spent a month at Vancouver Island and that Mr. McNiven of Vancouver was in constant communication with Vancouver Island. And in the face of this the hon. member gets up and says nothing has been done, nothing more than was done by Mr. Lemieux seven or eight years ago.
There is no letter whatever from the department to the mine owners in the report of the commissioner. Before we proceed with the other items another day, it seems to me that all the .correspondence should be laid on the Table so that we' may have a chance to see the position that has been taken. I am asking what will be no more than fair because the present report is only half complete, and my hon. friend knows it very well.
