What the minister says is quite correct. The memorial would be seen well from every point of the city coming towards it, but the base of this monument is 24 feet by 26 feet, and I submit to the minister that there would be very little space left after the monument was placed there, and that there would be too great a congestion Tight in the heart of the city.
I have the honour to inform the House that I have received the following resolution from the Senate:
The Senate doth unite with the House of Commons in their Address to His Most Excellent Majesty the King, expressing the deep regret and heartfelt sorrow of the House at the demise of Her Majesty the late Queen Mother Alexandra, and have filled in the blank space therein with the words "Senate and."
And also a second resolution:
Requesting this House to unite with the Senate in an Address to His Excellency the Governor General praying His Excellency to transmit the Joint Address of both Houses to His Most Excellent Majesty the King, expressing the deep regret and heartfelt sorrow at the demise of Her Majesty the late Queen Mother, in such a way as to His Excellency may seem fit, in order that the same may be laid at the foot of the Throne, and that they fill in the blank space therein with the word "Commons."
I would like to read this telegram and to ask two questions:
Seven dollar rate on Alberta coal is stopped needing fifty care more to meet the immediate demand my stock of fuel has dwindled to ten tons although I had
Transportation oj Coal
stored some since July and made contract with the largest manufacturer of coke for eight cars per month they fell down (to six last month and not one car shipped this month have schools and street railway contracts and not three days supply on hand situation very acute.
Mr. Buchanan handled over one hundred oarloads of Alberta coal last season and I am at a loss to know why the government do not act in regard to this matter. They have received, I am satisfied, many requests from western Ontario and, in fact, from all parts of Ontario to do something to relieve the coal situation. There is no use of the Minister of the Interior (Mr. Stewart) telling members of parliament from Ontario to look to the fuel controller of that province, because he is powerless to act.
