I might ask if the banking interests in this Dominion have been consulted ? Probably they could- give some light on this subject. It is certainly a large undertaking involving large expenditures and it seems doubtful whether due consideration has been given to tjie undertaking. The banking interests are probably best able to inform the House on questions of this kind and I would like to know if they have been consulted.
