Douglas Charles Abbott

Liberal

Mr. ABBOTT:

This is a bill to incorporate a company known as the Quebec and Montmorency Railway company, to acquire the

railway property operated by the Quebec Railway Light, Heat & Power company. For some years the latter company has operated a tramway system in the city of Quebec, and a railway line from the city of Quebec to cap Tourmente, a distance of about thirty miles along the north shore of the St. Lawrence river. The operation of the tramways division differs from that of the railway division, and it is desired to segregate the two properties.

As explained in the explanatory note to the bill, the terms and conditions of any acquisition by the Quebec and Montmorency Railway company will be subject to the approval of the board of transport commissioners and the governor in council, in the manner provided by the Railway Act.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time. QUESTIONS
