Hon. George H. Hees (Minister of Transport):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to read to the house a telegram which I received this morning and in which I think all members will be interested. It is from Mr. N. R. Crump, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and was sent from Montreal this morning to me as Minister of Transport. The telegram reads as follows:
Am glad to Inform you that after careful study It has been decided to operate daily service, Van-couver-Victoria and return commencing February 25 when present service discontinued until May 15 when summer triangle service will be resumed. Expect substantial loss from this operation but attempt will be made keep to minimum by providing austerity service. It will, however, maintain the connection desired.
