"Not lit tor domestic purposes " is the verdict pronounced
by the Public ...nalyist, not on a
few wells only but of every one that
has been tested.
Tliere is no place in the whole
broad Dominion ot Canada that is
better able to afford a proper water
system than the municipality of
Delta. The farmers are possessed |
of the best soil, the best markets,
and year after year they can count
upon excellent returns from the
soil Thev have nothing to fear
from early or late frosts. The great
majority of the farmers are recognized as well-to-do, why then
haggle about incurring the comparatively small expense of providing a suitable supply ot water that
will mean comfort, health and happiness to the whole community.
In following the  discussion, one]
of the main difficulties seemed to be
how to  make  an equitable assessment.    This  is, no doubt, an important   question,   and   one   that
should receive the most careful attention.     But   surely,   Sir,   there I
need be no undue  anxiety  ou this J
score.    We have  every confidence

that the Committee had power ai d

in reality, the committee has r.o
