p.3 Wrecking - There are several powerful wrecking tugs at Kingston; the Metamora is lying at Sarnia; the Prince Alfred at Windsor; the Jessie at Malden; the Parker at Grand River; and powerful tugs are always to be had at Port Dalhousie and in Toronto harbour. This will show that there is no necessity for American tugs to come into Canadian waters, in violation of the law, and disposes of the statement made last fall by an American paper that the Canadians had no wrecking gear. At Kingston, the Garden Island wrecking apparatus is the best on the continent, while the tug McArthur, belonging to the Collinsby Rafting Company, is also in commission for wrecking purposes.
