Unionist

Mr. BALLANTYNE:

In regard to the fees to be collected, we are only proposing a very slight increase. From my experience as a commissioner for the port of Montreal, I know that the shipping agents are always on the alert and do not want to pay anything more than they are obliged to pay, which is only natural. I am quite sure that the small increase in fees which is proposed here is not going to be a burden on any of the ship-owners, nor will it have any detrimental effect on shipping, but it will yield the harbour master a larger remuneration.
