should have the weight of movement, so that we can see what will result from this arrangement. We should have the class of traffic and the direction in which it moves. Then we should also get the information as to other grades upon the same line, when they occur and what the grade is, for example, on the movement from Chicoutimi to the point of intersection. We should have the same information from the western terminus of the branch, and also the grade from Chicoutimi south. It may be that this is merely a minor grade connection, and we are committing ourselves to a whole lot of other expenditures in order to reduce this line to a grade of five-eighths.
Well, this is all the grade that it will be necessary to remove by this expenditure. I have not the information my hon. friend wants, but I could get it for him when we are in committee on the bill. I can get all the engineering information.
Not only should we have the information as to class of traffic and the receipts from the line, but we should also have information as to the points between which it moves in each direction, so that we can properly consider the whole question.
Resolution reported, read the second time and concurred in. Mr. Graham thereupon moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 30, respecting the construction of a Canadian National railway line between Rousseau and Laurent, in the province of Quebec.
