January 25, 1909 (11th Parliament, 1st Session)


Mr. R.@

BICKERDIKE (Montreal, St. Lawrence) moved for leave to introduce Bill Mr. LEMIEUX.
(No. 3) to amend the Railway Act. He said: The Bill is largely on the lines of
the one introduced during the last two or three sessions by my hon. friend from Lincoln (Mr. Lancaster), and which passed this House last session but was defeated in the Senate. Public opinion is aroused to that extent that something on those lines will have to be done this session, and I hope that the Minister of Railways (Mr. Graham) will give the Bill his attention and possibly take charge of it and put it into proper shape.
