Mr. LEMIEUX.

When the time comes to discuss this Bill more fully, I will explain to the hon. gentleman that this rate of one cent in cities where the free delivery system exists will help me to give more postal facilities to the rural sections of the country. At present the large cities of the Dominion are paying for the service in the rural portions. We are only giving the cities what already exists in other places where no letter carrier system exists. The one cent rate exists in other portions of the country, provided the letters are not sent outside the locality served by the post office.
