Mr. R. LEMIEUX (Gasp6).

I may add to the remarks made by the hon. gentleman who is chairman of the Committee on Railways and Canals (Hon. Mr. Sutherland), that I voted for the Bill in question when it was discussed in the committee. I must say it was discussed on its merits, and although several amendments were suggested, the committee persistently refused to adopt the Bill. I think it would be simply a waste of time to send the Bill back to the committee. We discussed it nearly two hours, and a great many suggestions were made by the promoters, but the committee would not accept them, and rejected the Bill.

Topic:   GREAT NORTHERN TRANSIT COMPANY.
