March 11, 1910 (11th Parliament, 2nd Session)


Robert Laird Borden (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Conservative (1867-1942)


The statement of the minister is very different from the statement in the speech from the Throne. The speech from the Throne does not say there is still $1,000,000 to be expended upon it, and that by using the Canadian Northern bridge some trains could be run over jt- had the Grand Trunk accepted the offer of the contractors. The speech from the Throne is much more direct:
The eastern division is now open for traffic from Winnipeg to Lake Superior Junction.
Why is it that so absolutely a misleading statement-not to use any harsher term- was placed in the mouth of His Excellency by the government?
