PEACE RIVER DISTRICT

CORRESPONDENCE RESPECTING SURVEY OF RESOURCES AND PURCHASE OF RAILWAY


Hon. CHARLES A. DUNNING (Minister of Railways and Canals): I desire to table a return moved by the hon. member for Peace River (Mr. Kennedy), for all correspondence with reference to the survey which will be undertaken jointly by the Canadian National Railways, the Canadian Pacific Railway and the British Columbia government into the resources of that country. I desire also to table a further reference moved by the hon. member for Peace River, for all correspondence between the Department of Railways and Canals and the Alberta government in reference to the joint purchase of the Edmonton, Dunvegan and British Columbia railway. In connection with both these returns I should say that delay was occasioned by reason of the need of securing the permission of the .presidents of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Canadian National Railways for the inclusion of certain personal correspondence. That permission has been granted, but I desire to say that this does not constitute in any way an acknowledgment of the principle that personal correspondence of that character can be brought down as a matter of right. In this case, however, both presidents were willing to have that correspondence included because of the nature of the correspondence and the information it conveys. Private Bills
