CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAYS

PRIVILEGE

LIB

Jean-François Pouliot

Liberal

Mr. Jean Francois Pouliot (Temiscouata):

Mr. Speaker, I greatly regret to have to rise on a question of privilege which concerns an article published in the Armstrong Advertiser on May 29, 1952, and written by the hon. member for Yale (Mr. Jones). It reads as follows:

Rail extension queried

Mr. Pouliot, Liberal member for Temiscouata, was the only one injecting a sour note when the bill to extend the Canadian National Railway at a cost of $10 million to Kitimat was under discussion. He claimed that British Columbia already had more mileage of railway per one thousand inhabitants than any other province. (Statistics proved such not the case).

Here is the record, Mr. Speaker; I am reading from page 118 of the standing committee on railways, canals and telegraph lines:

By Mr. Pouliot:

Q. Mr. Fairweather, you are welcome. Will you please tell me what is the mileage of the railways in British Columbia compared to the province of Quebec by thousand people?

A. Well, I am sorry, sir, I cannot give that offhand: I would be pleased to figure it out.

Q. Well, I will tell you, it is three to one-three people out of one thousand in British Columbia have a line of railway-I mean both railways, compared to one in the province of Quebec.

That is what I said. I will tell the hon. gentleman of whom I am exceedingly fond to be more careful in the future.

Mr. Speaker, I am sorry if the hon. member misread my statement. I took it from the Hansard. If it is checked, I think you will find that it is correct.
