RAILWAY ACT AMENDMENT.


Mr. W. F. MACLEAN (South York) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 30 to amend the Railway Act. He said: I ask leave to introduce this Bill in view of the fact that it does not appear to be the intention of the Govern-meiit, so far as we know, to introduce this session, the excellent Bill which they brought forward last year to amend the Railway Act. I propose to take two of the clauses of that Bill in the hope of having them made law this session. One relates to the capitalization of railways and will have the effect of giving control of such capitalization to the Railway Commission. The other provision gives municipalities the right to associate themselves with railway companies in the construction of bridges, so that the public may have a right of way for ordinary traffic over the bridge in addition to its use for railway purposes. Motion agreed to, and Bill read the first time.
