Songhees Terminals,
The work of grading the former Songhees Indian Reserve was reorganized in the beginning
of the year, and a steam-shovel put on the ground, together with a compressor and equipment,
for economically removing the rock. This work has been continuously carried on during the
year, resulting in the removal of 33,774 cubic yards of rock at a total cost of $44,142.77, or an
average of $1.31+ per cubic yard (details shown below), and producing a graded area suitable
for large industrial sites.
On June 1st last a large area (portion of it being improved) and fronting on the harbour
was leased to the Imperial Munitions Board (Wooden-ship Building Department) at the nominal
rental of $275 per month for the purpose of assisting in the building of sbips for the Imperial
Government, and the success of the industry shows that in leasing the lands for such purpose
the community has benefited very largely. S 8
British Columbia.
1918
The lease expires on May 31st, and is renewable from month to month so long as required
for ship-building for the Imperial Government.
A spur line connecting the Ship-building Company's wharf at Hospital Point with the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway Company's line has been constructed and is in operation. The
Government contributed $1,000 toward the cost of this work.
