Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

I fail to see, then, what possible justification there is for it. Let us go back to it'; we have threshed it out so often that I thought it was clear. We started out with a declaration of parliament- I do not think my right hon. friend was in the government of that day; he was too young to be in it at that time, but he was a supporter of it. But that was a great declaration on the part of the then government. In other words, the administration of Sir Wilfrid Laurier in 1903 said: "Special privilege is to stop; there is to be no further discrimination and unfairness in connection with the railway rates."
