Mr. OLIVER.

I cannot accept the amendment. In the first place it is not necessary because at any point declared a terminal by the minister, all elevators are subject to the control of the Act. It is quite competent for the minister to bring into operation all the provisions with regard to the Winnipeg elevators. Therefore this legislation is not necessary. The only difference is that my hon. friend proposes that where-ever a terminal point is declared all the elevators shall be public elevators. There is no difference in the authority of the minister to declare any point a terminal.
