The MINISTER OF RAILWAYS AND CANALS.

This section has been found to be necessary by reason of the terms of this grant under the previous Act. When they came to construct their line, they found it would be very much more advantageous not only for the undertaking but in the public interest that, instead of building a new line they should utilize a considerable portion of the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, running their railway from Little Current up the Canadian Pacific Railway at one end and running the Sudbury end from the Canadian Pacific Railway, dividing the 66 miles into, we will say, 30 miles on one end and 36 miles on the other. I believe that with this change there will be a saving of some 7 miles.

The MINISTER OF RAILWAYS AND CANALS.

Yes, they are the same. But they are practically two branch lines of the Canadian Pacific Railway, as it stands now, I would like to change the mileage of the

first from 34 miles to 35 miles and the second from 32 miles to 31 miles. This makes the distance the same, a mile being taken off in one case and added on in the other.
