There are two propositions before the House, and the Canadian Pacific Railway is father of them both. When the company comes with a new proposition, parliament is quite justified in saying, we proxiose to hold over this second prop'osition until you tell us what you have done with the first. It is well within the province of parliament to try to have this grievance of those North-west people removed, and to ask the Canadian Pacific Railway to give a reason for building a railway where it is not required, and refusing to build one to a part of the country where it is urgently required, and where, if it is mot built, the people threaten to leave Canada. We do not want that. There is only one way to air these grievances ; that is, to appeal to parliament, and use a club if necessary. But, every time an appeal is made to parliament to remedy a grievance from the North-west, it is sidetracked by one excuse or another. Parliament is the place to air and to rectify these grievances, and I am going to preach that doctrine as long as I am here. If you give the company everything they demand and ask for nothing in return, they will own the country, and do what they like. When parliament gives the company something, it should get something in return for the people. Here is an opportunity for making a strong representation, even to Mr. Drinkwater, who, I am glad to say, is now acting as president while the chief is away, to get two roads built this summer instead of one. It is to assist the people of the Northwest in getting their grievance righted that I am adding my word to-day, and I hope the right hon. premier will ask Mr. Drinkwater," before he leaves town, to agree that the company shall build twenty miles of this road during the present year.
