April 1, 1910 (11th Parliament, 2nd Session)


William Pugsley (Minister of Public Works)



A short time ago I had an application from an owner of a wharf in or near the city of Ottawa to do some dredging, and I said I would do it if the owner would pay so much for the dredging. I think I gave directions to the chief engineer to charge a reasonable price for the work. I happen to have owned, with two or three other gentlemen, a wharf in the city of St. John; we wanted some dredging done by the government, and we had to pay the actual cost of operating the dredge, I think some $40 or $50 a day, while the dredge was doing work in front of this wharf.
Compensation to Sydney J. Dale in full of all demands for injuries sustained by him on the government dredge ' Nakusp,' in June, 1907, whilst employed as deckhand-revote of $500 lapsed, $1,000.
