We expect the plans in two or three davs. For all practical purposes, I think the chief engineer has made up his mind as to what the route will be.

The man originally seut was our own engineer, Mr. O'Dwyer. He has taken the preliminary steps. To make sure that his valuation is right, we will have other valuators check it. The public interest will be protected in every way. We desire to get the property at a fair value.

I hope and expect so, now that you have a board. But it- was not so a year ago.

Surely, if property has changed hands recently, the actual price paid -is the best evidence of value, and it would seem that the best course would be to ascertain the facts concerning such transactions.

Mr. GRAHAM.

I think that the safest way is for the government to expropriate the property, and then there can be no question. We intend to take all the precautions necessary, as we want to get full value. My hon. friend from South Simcoe (Mr. Lennox) asked yesterday about the expenditure on the Canada Eastern. I gave that information last year. It is quite a long statement, and I hope he will not mind if I send him the number of the page on which it appears in 'Hansard.'
