I almost hesitate to take up any of the time of the committee, but as the minister has mentioned the supplementary estimates, I take this opportunity of mentioning two wharves at Barrie which are in a very bad state of repair. When I wrote to the distriot engineer about this matter, he informed me that there was no appropriation to take care of it. These wharves are absolutely dangerous and I fear that an accident will take place. I think an item should be provided in the supplementary estimates to cover the resheathing of these wharves, although I do not see why it could, not be taken care of by the general appropriation.
I would imagine that from $400 to $600 would be sufficient to make these wharves safe, and that is all I am asking for.
