Mr. Chairman, I have one or two questions to ask the hon. member for Welland, and I wish to make a correction in connection with one or two points that came up in the discussion the last time the bill was before the committee. In the committee on railways, canals and telegraph lines, the hon. member for Saskatoon asked why the money was divided, $2,000,000 for construction and $2,000,000 for land. I would refer the hon. member to page 60 of the minutes of the meeting of the committee, where following a question that had been asked by the hon. member for Winnipeg North as to how the money was divided, the Hon. Mr. McQuesten said:
Hon. Mr. McQuesten: As far as my information is now, we do not think it will exceed
That was for the bridge. He went on:
And the other $2,000,000 was for purchasing land.
That was afterwards extended to include buildings also, and it was on that point that I was enlarging when the bill was before the committee the other evening.
There is one other point I wish to bring up, which has been brought to my attention by citizens of my community.
