Consequently my hon. friend's argument applies to us just 4 p.m. as much as to him, and I am not blaming him, as I said before, for going so slowly for two years. There are many difficulties in the way. But I do blame him for saying to the House that in two
months we could clear up all those difficulties and amalgamate the Grand Trunk, and I make the further assertion that, in two months we did take the first step towards amalgamation and appointed a Canadian National board, and on January 30, the Grand Trunk became a part of the Canadian National system.
