Mr. LACROIX (Quebec-Montmorency):
This bill is introduced to clarify the jurisdiction of the board of railway commissioners in connection with telephone tolls and services, and to fix the limits within which such tolls shall be applicable. A case was submitted to the board of railway commissioners when sitting in Quebec and the chairman, the Hon. Mr. Guthrie, declared that the board was without authority to act therein and suggested that the law be amended.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
