Mr. MICHAUD:

I am pleased that the

Prime Minister has given a ray of hope to the people of the maritimes. Without anticipating any representations which might be made by the premiers of the provinces or their counsel, may I say this is one recommendation of the Duncan commission which has not yet been implemented, namely the matter of subsidies or increased allowances to the provinces. It has been carried for some time in the estimates pending final adjustment. So far since the opening of the session we have heard considerable about the claims and the rights of the western people to increased grants and subsidies from the Dominion government. Spokesmen from the maritimes have been very modest, due to the fact that they have faith in the justice of their claims and that they will soon be adjusted. The matter of increased grants and subsidies is one of vital importance to the martime provinces. I do not intend this evening to go into details, but simply to mention the fact that the maritime provinces have not received any material financial assistance through this depression, in comparison with what has been granted other parts of the country.

Some of the provinces, and this particularly applies to New Brunswick, are figuring on an increased subsidy for the next year in order to balance the budget, and it is to be hoped that in some form or another this matter will soon be adjusted and that before the close of the provincial fiscal year, in November, a substantial increase will be made in lieu of

what should have been granted some years ago. These would be increased grants to make up for what these provinces have lost and have given up through joining confederation. The matter certainly will come up at some stage during the session, at which time an opportunity will be given to all maritime representatives to speak. So far, however, I am pleased to note that the matter has advanced one step and that arrangements have been made with the premiers of the provinces to have the claims laid in concrete form before the government.

Mr. J. E. MICHAUD (Restigouche-Mada-waska):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to inquire of the Minister of Railways (Mr. Manion) if his attention has been directed to the fact that the business of the Canadian National Railways and the Canadian Pacific

Railway in the city of Fredericton is being amalgamated with the idea of closing the station of the Canadian National Railways?
