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


Edward Walter Nesbitt



As far as I am personally concerned, I was one of the first members of the Railway Committee that insisted that what we call the standard clause should be put in all railway charters.
I also insisted upon that when they came back for a renewal of charter. The member for East Larabton read subsection 4 as if we were objecting to it. We are not objecting to subsection 4. We have put in all recent Acts a provision giving the municipalities the absolute control of their

own streets. I think the member for East La mb ton unintentionally misled the committee by reading that clause and saying that we objected to it.
