Mr. THOMAS CHRISTIE (Argenteuil).

Mr. Speaker, it is not my intention to discuss the question as to whether the indemnity ought to be increased or not, but it does appear to me that it might be advisable to postpone it until after the next general election in order that the matter may be discussed at the polls, and if members are returned with a clear mandate from the people, then, I think, it will be time to increase the indemnity.

Mr. CHRISTIE.

Mr. Chairman, in rising it is not my intention to occupy the attention of the committee more than a few seconds. I simply desire to record my protest against this Manitoba Railway Bill. I may be mistaken, but, it does appear to me, that if this measure is sanctioned and carried out it will prove disastrous to the province of Manitoba. It will involve that province in such heavy liabilities that it must be more or less ruinous. But, that is not all. I am convinced that we, in this parliament, occupy a position of serious responsibility in regard to this question. If I understand the matter aright this measure has been amended and changed and it appears to me that it would be wise that we should delay proceedings and allow the measure that is now before us to be referred back to Manitoba for the consideration of the legislature of that province and in order that they may have an opportunity of pronouncing upon the measure which we are now dealing with. I will not further trespass upon the attention of the committee. I have just said in a single word what I think it would be wise to do.
