Mr. Dan McKenzie (Winnipeg-Assiniboine):
Madam Speaker, there have been five serious train derailments in the 60-mile Miami subdivision of the Canadian National Railroad in Manitoba during the past year alone, and two workers have been badly injured. Today trains are forced to travel at ten miles per hour rather than take the chance of running off the track. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage-Mar-quette (Mr. Mayer):
That this House demand that the Minister of Transport take immediate action to have the Miami subdivision made eligible now, not in 1983 as is currently planned, for the federal rail rehabilitation program before there is any loss of life or further injury.
