Mr. R. LEMIEUX (Gaspe).
I happened to be present in the committee when this Bill was discussed yesterday morning, and the vote which was taken there shows that a great deal of attention was given to the explanations of Mr. Buchan, the representative of the Montreal Bridge Company. The vote taken stood 41 to 11 or 12, so a large number of the members of the committee were present and listened to the discussion. I do not want to discuss the merits of the Bill now, but it is well known in Montreal, and in the Montreal district especially, that it is nothing else but another Armstrong scheme. It has not the confidence of the people of Montreal, and should be defeated.
