My hon. friend quoted from an order in council awarding a contract to Mr. Maranda of Quebec. Let me say that everything has been done on reports of the engineers; the changes have been carried out on their reports and I hope my hon. friends will not object to the fact that I got the contractor to lower his tender from $389,000 to $354,000, which is practically cost price, I am told by the engineers. I do not think my hon. friend would object to that.
