Mr. VENIOT:

The postal service in Canada, both air mail and ordinary mail, is second to none in the world. In 1928 we had a request from France to allow one of our officials to go over there and explain to them the system we were carrying on, so that they could amend theirs to meet existing conditions. They accepted our way of doing things. In 1929

[Mr. Veniot.l

the assistant Postmaster General at Washington came here to consult with one of the officials who is now sitting in front of me as to the best method of carrying on air mail delivery in the United States. They changed their system, under which they had suffered enormous deficits every year, and adopted the Canadian system.

May I say a word on behalf of those with whom I worked at the time I held the office of Postmaster General, and may I pay due credit to those men who under all governments in years gone by have given and even at the present time are giving their attention to the perfection of the postal service in Canada, and have brought it to its present state of development. It stands second to none in the world.

Mr. VENIOT:

My hon. friend is trying to quibble, something which he was- accusing us on this side of doing. Let us assume the letter has been written and is ready to mail; if the Canadian Pacific leaves at eight in the morning and the Canadian National at nine, on which train would he want his mail to come?
