Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. THOMAS CANTLEY (Pictou):

I
wish to direct a question to the Minister of Railways by way of supplementing a question addressed to him yesterday by my genial friend the hon. member representing Antigo-nish-Guysborough (Mr. Duff), lord high admiral of the north Atlantic fleet. I refer to the extension of chapter 34 of the statutes of 1929, under clause one of which the construction of a Canadian National branch line from Sunnybrae to Guysborough was authorized. I trust that the minister will be good enough to arrange for one year's extension of that act. I would also ask if he cannot give us some assurance that work on this branch line will soon be continued and pushed to completion. The road is now seventy-two per cent completed, and as the government is confronted with the problem of unemployment I suggest that here is a splendid opportunity of providing employment, now so urgent a matter.
