July 18, 1917 (12th Parliament, 7th Session)


Edward Walter Nesbitt



We have no proof of
that. We just had a statement to that effect. The solicitors for the Hydro-Electric and for the city of Toronto made that statement but they furnished no proof to the committee that it was true. They only surmised that might be true. But, in the meantime, they ask us to enact clause 5 to take away the rights of the people who put their money into these bonds. I see no reason why Toronto should not buy
it these corporations if they want to take them over.
