Mr. COTNAM:

I am talking exactly the

way I feel. I should like to make a further protest. At the present time the board of management of the Canadian National Railways propose to take up the steel on that section of the Pembroke-Parry Sound branch of the Canadian National system for a distance of fifty miles. That particular section of the

Public Works Program

road runs through part of Algonquin park. Not long ago we passed a vote providing assistance to tourist traffic. We have an enormous tourist traffic throughout Canada and the closing of that line of railway would shut off that particular section of the country. Incidentally it would embarrass those who hold lumber interests in that section of the province. I wish to protest strenuously against the taking up of the steel, when we know that the building of a small trestle costing only $40,000 or $50,000 might keep the line open to Parry Sound.
