Mr. TURRIFF.

In that case, I withdraw my statement. But the great majority of members on the other side of the House endorsed the plan of their leader, which was to lease the road from Fort William to Winnipeg to the Canadian Pacific Railway, assist in having it double tracked and allow all companies running powers over it. If that were feasible in that case, it would be as feasible to have traffic running arrangement over the road to Hudson bay though that road was owned by one company.
