The hon. member for Sherbrooke (Mr. MeCrea) made inquiry not long ago as to how many cars are in use throughout the Dominion in connection with the post office service, what the make of each car is, and the price. I may say that there are eleven motor vehicles in use by the Post Office Department, as follows:
No of Cars. Make. Cost.Montreal 1.. . . Packard $5,472Toronto, 7 .. . . 2 Dominion Automo- bile Co., each.. . -5 Russell Motor Co., 3,0004 at 2,5001 at 3,500Quebec, l .. .. Mitchell Garage and Automobile Co. . . 2,475Ottawa, 1 .. .. Packard 5,330Sherbrooke,! . . Packard 4,500
Purchased from Mr. Caron, Montreal; transferred from Ottawa to Sherbrooke in February, 1914.
I may say that there are other cars employed by the Post Office Department, but not in a direct way. In several cities we have motor cars in use by contractors.
