April 25, 1974 (29th Parliament, 2nd Session)

PC

Eldon Mattison Woolliams

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Woolliams:

My hon. friend says "Take them over". If I thought that was the solution, Mr. Chairman, I would speak in favour of it. If I thought socializing the railroads would solve the problem, I would support it. But I find that the procrastination and negligence of the CNR is as great, if not greater, than that of the CPR. In fact, if you ride on the passenger trains of the CNR or the CPR you will find that you get service. I might even mention Air Canada and CP Air. At least CP Air has not got the monopolistic routes Air Canada has. I have tried both lines from here to Calgary so I know who gives the service.
