Mr. BERGERON.

In order to protect the people of Montreal against monopoly the clause 16 of the lease says : The Robert syndicate shall not amalgamate with the Montreal Light, Heat and Power Company, and it is commonly supposed in Montreal that the Canadian Light and Power Company which is negotiating with the city council is in reality the Robert syndicate. I do not believe they could do that without the authorization of the Minister of Railways.

Mr. BERGERON.

The lease has been in my possession since it was signed, but I want to know what has been done under it. Has the Robert syndicate made its payment to the government, and are they Mr. GRAHAM.

carrying out the conditions of the lease. A company called the Canadian Light and Power Company is applying to the city council of Montreal to light the city, and that company is supposed to be the Robert syndicate under another name. As I understand it the Robert syndicate cannot under the terms of the lease amalgamate with the Montreal Light, Heat and Power Company according to clause 16 of the lease. Their lease is very stringent on that point, and I would like to know if the Minister of Railways has been notified of any change ?
