Mr. MACDONALD (Pictou) :

Let me tell him that to-day, under the existing management, they charge our coal companies in Nova Scotia 60 per cent of the value of the coal to carry it to Montreal. They charge us more to carry coal to Montreal than they charge to carry coal from Lovett, Alberta down to Prince Rupert, although it is a longer distance, and they have to go over the Rockies. That is an illustration. '
