Charles Fitzpatrick (Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada)

Liberal

Mr. FITZPATRICK.

This is the amendment to the Railway Act which provides running rights for the Intercolonial Railway over the Grand Trunk Railway from Montreal to Coteau, and over the Canada Atlantic Railway from Coteau junction to Parry Sound.

When this Bill w'as up for consideration before, it w'as suggested that possibly a claim might be made against the government for the right that we are now taking to run over the Canada Atlantic, without reference to the fact whether wre used that right or not. It wras suggested that that point ought to be made absolutely clear. I therefore move to reconsider Section 5, and to amend it by adding the following proviso :

Provided that no compensation shall be payable for such running powers unless and until the same are actually exercised, and then only for such exercise.

I would suggest the words ' so far as they may be excused ' instead of the words ' for such exercise.'
