March 16, 1933

Mr. YERVILLE (Translation):

I am suggesting it now that this bill is before the house. It is because the Liberal party's policy was to never shift on private individuals the responsibility which was incumbent to them. To-day, it is proposed to shift this responsibility. Let us, as members, bear this responsibility.

It is not because railways are passing through a crisis -that we should shift this responsibility. Everybody has made losses within these last years. If there is an institution which can afford losses, it is our national railways, since they have the people *to -back them while we have no- one. It is a -public service; let us bear our responsibility as in the past-. Let us practise thrift and cooperate, as the bill states, but let the government show that they are in earnest by cooperating when they request us to do so. We point out the way, and, for my part, I have already made a suggestion.

Let the railway companies avoid duplicating their lines. Is there anything more ridiculous to see trains leaving Montreal for Ottawa, one at 3.30 p.m., another at 3.45 p.m., again one leaving at 6 p.m. and another at 6.15.p.m., and, in the morning, one at 8.25, and another at 8.30.

The railway officials have a hard time keeping up their time schedule to avoid collisions before -the trains leave the station. I think some improvement could be carried out in this connection.
