Mr. LOGGIE:

And I would ask the hon. gentleman to ibeaT in mind what the Minister of Railways and Canals (Mr. Cochrane) said last year:

If the province sees its way to undertake any bridges which this Government might assist them in, I should be glad to hear representations from the province In that respect.

And I would like to ask have such representations been heard?

Mr. LOGGIE:

My respected friend from South Renfrew says that he thinks the province has nothing to do with it. T am only using this as an alternative. If the Government Will not act on their own initiative altogether, will not they ask the Provincial Government to join in the construction of these bridges and thus afford access to the railway on the north side of the river for those from whom they have taken the railway?
