Mr. WADE.

The amendment I propose is as follows :
Provided further that 10 such tolls shall be levied or taken until the by-law fixing the same has been approved by the Governor in Council and the same published as provided by section 227 of the Railway Act ;
And further provided that such by-law shall be subject to revision as provided by section 228 of the Railway Act; and for the above purpose of approval and revision, said sections 227 and 228 of the Railway Act shall apply mutatis mutandis to any by-law of the company fixing such tolls.
Section 223 of the Railway Act authorizes the company by by-laws to fix railway tolls;, section 227 provides that they cannot collect any of these tolls until the same have been approved by the Governor in Council and until they have been published for two Mr. SPEAKER.
weeks in the ' Canada Gazette '; section 228 provides that any toll so fixed or approved- by the Governor in Council shall be subject to revision by the Governor in Council. I objected to having the words from ' time to time ' appear on the face of the charter
