At the last meeting the Minister of Trade and Commerce gave us the quantity of mail matter that went by tlie Canadian route. Would he be good enough to give us the quantity that goes by the New York route ?
I could not carry those figures in my memory. Some time ago tlie question was asked from the other side by, I think, the senior member for West Toronto (Mr. Clarke), and I gave the figures of the quantity of mail that went via New York and via Halifax.
The weight of letters despatched via New York was 92,530 pounds. The weight of other matter was 663,000 pounds. About one-seventh part goes by the Canadian route and about seven times as much goes by way of New York.
