Practically none at the present time. ' The bridge over the South Saskatchewan is washed away, the Qu'-Appelle valley is flooded, and there is a practical tie-up of the railway service. This has existed not only for the past week, and even the past month, but, as my hon. friend from Saskatchewan will tell the House, ever since January. He has received telegrams from Kosthern and Prince Albert, which state that consignments of freight from Winnipeg or farther east have been on the road since January and have not yet arrived. What led me to refer to this matter again to-day was the concluding sentence of the telegram that was sent to me, which said :
Reply and give us some information, that we may know what we have to face.
If the people have to face starvation, they want to know it, so, if it is necessary, they will have to take the last means available, and endeavour to get out on their feet.
