Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):
Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.
In view of the vast mineral discoveries made in northern Saskatchewan, which will require railway transit construction if the fabulous potential for Canada is to be attained, the Canadian National Railways should proceed without further delay to give consideration, in the national interest, to commencing construction of a railroad into these areas, to Lac La Ronge and 100 miles north with the railhead, of course, being in the city of Prince Albert.
