Mr. OLIVER.

While you are on this section there is a case which has 'been brought to our attention by wire, and perhaps the minister would not object to considering it in connection with section 91, at least I think that is where -it would properly come in. The telegram to which I refer is as follows:
Car 142982 loaded with wheat was inspected at Winnipeg, February 8, and unloaded at Fort William February 12. Grade lowered two grades causing loss of 20 cents per bushel to shipper without notifying shipper or inspection department at Winnipeg of such change. Grain Act should provide some protection in such cases and shippers be given an opportunity to dispose of grain before identity is lost.
