Mr. H. B. ADSHEAD (Calgary East):

It is very important at this stage to consider the principle of the bill. In this instance we have the province of Quebec entering into an agreement with another corporation to build a bridge.

Mr. H. B. ADSHEAD (East Calgary):

I have a telegram this morning from the railway mail clerks in the city of Calgary stating that certain rearrangements have been made and they feel an apprehension that their seniority and standing in the service may be interfered with. I should like to ask the Postmaster General whether any arrangement that may be made will interfere with their right of seniority or not?

Mr. ADSHEAD:

But it is entirely the business of the province of Quebec. We as the Dominion parliament have no right to enter into an agreement which affects the province of Quebec and this other corporation. As the Minister of the Interior (Mr. Stewart) has told us, because the enterprise touches an Indian reserve we have certain obligations. It may be proper for us to determine what our obligation is in that connection to the province of Quebec. By this bill we are obligating the Dominion parliament to pay $1,700,000 spread over a forty-year period, or about $42,500 each year.

Mr. ADSHEAD:

As this wheat is a necessity in Canada why should we penalize ourselves by putting a duty on it? This wheat is necessary for the biscuit industry of the Dominion.
