Mr. Speaker, as far as the Laird line is concerned-and the right hon. member asked me specifically about the Laird line-I recommend that he visit the rail
retention committee and read the ad again. If he will follow it, he will find he can go before the CTC, make his argument and be heard there. That is what the ad is about. He has not read it. 1 hope all farmers read it and we finally get the final decision on the remaining lines, and at the end of this program, along with our $800 million rail rehabilitation program, we will have preserved lines throughout the prairies. We will be rebuilding them and all doubt that the right hon. gentleman left behind him all over the place will have been resolved and removed.
