Mr. BURROWS.

Does the hon. gentleman (Mr. Staples) want the government to submit to parliament an arbitrary measure and force it on the governments of the different provinces without consulting them?

Mr. BURROWS.

If the hon. gentleman would use his brain a little he would understand. I said that these gentlemen were not asked to come to Ottawa, that they came of their own accord, they came while this Bill was being discussed, and they had a right to come to any meetings that they could get into and we were glad to confer with them.

Mr. BURROWS.

The hon. gentleman is under a misapprehension regarding what has taken place. As far as I understand, the representatives of the railway companies came here themselves. They were not asked to come here, and they were not asked to come to the meetings that the members on this side of the House had. At the same time representatives of the Grain Growers' Association also came here. They came of their own accord, they were not asked to attend our meetings, but they did attend them. It was quite open to hon. gentlemen on the other side of the House to have also met these gentlemen if they wanted to do so.
