Mr. HODGINS.

The hon. gentleman mentioned the Canada Cement Company. I might say that in November last the International Cement Company of Hull were charging $1.50 per barrel of cement delivered at the railway station in my place, but as soon as the merger was formed the price was raised to $2.09 per barrel. I simply mention this in order to draw the attention of the House to the effect which such mergers are likely to have.
