Mr. BRADETTE:

At this point I should like to make a request of the Minister of Public Works. I notice that a certain amount of money is to be spent upon railway grade crossings. A situation exists in my section of the country along the National Transcontinental extending from the Quebec border to a point a feiw miles west of Hearst whereby the railway commission has the power to decide where they shall or shall not build fences. Apparently so far as the railways' administration is concerned, if they decide in certain sections around Kapuskasing not to build those fences the farmers have no rights against them.
Under the present scheme I should like the government to ear-mark a certain amount of money so that fencing may be carried out along the railway line from the Quebec border to a point west of Hearst. The committee and minister will readily understand the injustice this section of the country has suffered, and I believe we would do well to ear-mark a certain sum of money which could be spent in building fences along that portion of railway I have just mentioned.
