Mr. DAMUDE:

I do not always agree with my hon. friend the member for Lincoln (Mr. Lockhart), but on this occasion it seems to me that the inadequacy of the guards on the Welland ship canal and those who are looking after the hydro development in the Niagara peninsula is a matter that should receive the most careful consideration from the government in order to see to it that the great Welland ship canal, where the locks

War Appropriation Bill

are situated in the constituency I have the honour to represent, and the hydro development are strictly guarded.

Mr. DAMUDE:

Are all the grain elevators under the Department of Trade and Commerce, or are they under the harbours board? I am referring particularly to the elevator at Port Colborne. Is it managed by the harbours board?

Mr. A. B. DAMUDE (Welland):

I want to take this opportunity of adding my support to the bill and expressing my agreement with the attitude of the Minister of Justice (Mr. Lapointe). Having the honour to represent the constituency of Welland, in which there is a great diversification of industry, including almost every kind of occupation, I find that generally this bill meets with the approval of labour in my riding. Therefore I am pleased to support the bill. I concur in the remarks made by the hon. member for Brantford City (Mr. Macdonald), and I am also in accord with the remarks of the hon. member for Davenport (Mr. MacNicol), which seem to me very much to the point.

Mr. DAMUDE:

I concur in the remarks of the hon. member for Peel (Mr. Graydon) with respect to the inspection of fruit as applying to the Niagara district, which I have the honour to represent. I am pleased to note that the minister has under consideration increasing the grant to the horticultural council, which has done splendid work. The amount of 85,000 is very small to take care of a work which is national in its scope.
