 49 Vic- Fraser River Buoys. 371
FRASER   RIVER   BUOYS.
Copy ofi a Report ofi a Committee  ofi the   Honourable the   Executive   Council, approved by
His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor the 16th May, 1885.
The Committee of Council beg to draw the attention of the Dominion Government to the
ever-recurring complaints with regard to the neglect of the Fraser River. The buoys at the
mouth of that important stream are reported to be continually out of place, thus rendering
navigation unnecessarily difficult and dangerous.
The Committee would earnestly urge upon the Dominion Government the great need that
exists for a more vigilant supervision of these buoys, and would suggest that the channel
should be frequently examined and the position of the buoys tested, and re-located when
necessary.
The Committee would also point out that the Snag Boat, which might be usefully employed in the above duties as well as in removing snags, has been lying idle for several
months.
The Committee advise that a copy of this Minute, if approved, be forwarded to the
Honourable the Secretary of State for Canada.
Certified,
(Signed)       Jno. Robson,
Clerk Executive Council.
Receipt of the above was acknowledged by the Honourable  the Secretary of State for
Canada in a despatch to His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor, dated 6th June, 1885.
