Mr. MILLAR:

The hon. member for Rose-town (Mr. Evans) is not very well informed regarding this matter, although the committee has been receiving some information. It does seem rather surprising that a service is rendered free of cost to some sections, while other sections have to pay. Some fine descriptions have been given and tales told about the wonderful service which is given and the number of lives saved, but if the Indian were dying near a telegraph or telephone line which had been paid for as it is

paid for in other provinces, I think the message would go over just the same. The members from British Columbia are asking that this service be extended, and perhaps I would do the same if I were receiving a free service. I see no reason for its being extended in one province simply because it has been carried on for many years. The minister was asked what the service cost, and he told the committee that there was a tariff but he stopped right there. I would like to know what the charges are.
