QUEBEC AND SAGUENAY RAILWAY- ST. IRENEE.


On the Orders of the Day:


L LIB

Pierre-François Casgrain

Laurier Liberal

Mr. P. F. CASGRAIN (Charlevoix-Mont-morency):

Mr. Speaker, I beg to draw the attention of the Government, and particularly of the Minister of Railways and Canals, to a fact which I discovered the other day when I happened to be in my county. I hold in my hand the time table of the Quebec and Saguenay Railway, and I find at page 2 a certain reference to all the special summer resorts along the line of that railway. All of these stations are mentioned except St. Irenee, and I am surprised at this omission.

Mr. SPEAKER:

Order. The statement

which the hon. member is making is not of such character as ought properly to be brought to the attention of the Government on the Orders of the Day. Only matters of general application, which are of countrywide interest and of urgent importance, can be brought to the notice of the Government on the Orders of the Day, and the hon. member is therefore not in order at the present moment.

Mr. CASGRAIN:

I bow to your ruling,

Mr. Speaker, but I beg to submit that the matter is one of the utmost urgency by reason of the fact that the time table has already been printed and has been distributed all over the country. .

WORK ON LACHINE CANAL.


On the Orders of the Day:


L LIB

Joseph Alfred Leduc

Laurier Liberal

Mr. J. A. LEDUC (Westmount-St. Henry):

I should like to know from the Minister of Public Works whether it is the intention of his department to continue the work already started on the Lachine canal in connection with the syphons that convey the water from the little river St. Pierre. This work has already been commenced and I should be glad if the minister would say whether he intends to proceed with it this summer. ' Furthermore, I would ask if the Government will pay part of the damages caused by the flood last spring in my constituency.

Mr. SPEAKER:

Questions of this character should be submitted when the Estimates of the department are under consideration. They are not of sufficient, general public importance to warrant their being

raised on the Orders of the Day. However important they may be to those directly concerned, they are of purely local application.
