CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS COST OP TRAINS BETWEEN MATAPEDIA-CAMPBELLTON


Mr. MARCH,: 1. What has been the cost to the Canadian National Railways, per year, of running the Gaspe trains to and from Matapedia to Campbellton since the changing of the terminus? 2. What has been the cost to the Canadian National Railways of hauling the postal cars for the Gaspe mail service from Matapedia to Campbellton and vice versa, since the Post Office Department has been freed of any cost in this matter?


CON

Robert James Manion (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MANION:

Mr. Marcil's question was submitted to the chairman of the board of trustees, Canadian National Railways, who replies that the inquiry concerns a detail of railway operation which is not of public interest, but adds that the operation of the Gaspe trains through to

the main line terminal of Campbellton-a distance of 13 miles-and the closing of the branch line terminal at Matapedia, after taking into account all changes in arrangements incidental thereto, has resulted in a saving to the railway company.

The subject matter of the inquiry is, of course, one that might be brought up later at a meeting of the select standing committee on railways and shipping, should the honourable member so desire.

Mr. BENNETT:

With respect to this question I intended to have indicated the other day that part of the information asked for will take some time to secure, inasmuch as it is within the sole province of the several provincial legislatures to deal with companies that have charters from such legislatures.

Question stands.
