LANCASTER (Lincoln and Niagara) moved for leave to introduce Bill (No. 6) to amend the Railway Act. He said: This Bill is exactly the same as that which has been passed by this House each year during the last three years, but has been rejected by the Senate. It is to protect the lives of people at level crossings in cities, towns and villages. I do not think it could be made any milder than it is and do injustice to the people of the country. As the House has unanimously passed it three times, I hope it will do so again, and that
the Senate will think better of its previous action and adopt what is evidently the will of the people.
