I wish to place before the Prime Minister a number of inquiries with a view to facilitating discussion on the Canadian Northern aid. I shall simply place them on ' Hansard ' in order that the Prime Minister may procure the information. They are as follows:
Is any part of the money to be raised under the guarantee to be used in the completion, betterment or extension of the Canadian Northern lines in Alberta and Saskatchewan; or for the completion, betterment or extension of the Canadian Northern Alberta, or Canadian Northern Western lines in Alberta, or of the Canadian Northern Saskatchewan lines in Saskatchewan? If so, on what lines is such expenditure to be made, and how much is to be expended on each line in
(a) Payment of existing liabilities,
(b) Completion of construction now hi progress,
(c) Betterment of completed lines,
(d) Extension of existing system?
In case of default of the Canadian Northern and foreclosure by the Government, to what extent are the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan protected by the terms of the resolution in respect of their guarantees to the Canadian Northern and constituent companies by provision for the completion and operation of lines the subject of such guarantees and payment of the interest guaranteed?
Can the terms of section 10 be construed to override in any degree or alter the effect of any agreements made between the provinces of Alberta or Saskatchewan and the Canadian Northern regarding their lines in these provinces?
Subtopic: CANADIAN NORTHERN RAILWAY RAILWAY.
