Mr. FINN:

I am very glad he is here and that he will hear what I am going to say. It seems to me that, since seniority counts, it is the juniors who will be put out on the sidewalk if this retirement is carried out, and while we have not direct responsibility in connection with the Canadian National Railways, which are under Mr. Hungerford and a board of directors, something should be done. Not long ago there was appointed to that board a gentleman from Cumberland county, Nova Scotia, the president of the Liberal association of that province. It seems to me things are coming to a pretty pass when we pick a political friend, the active head of the Liberal party in Nova Scotia, and put him on the board of management of the Canadian National Railways.
