I understand that before these highways can be approved the plans have to be filed by the provincial department of highways and the estimated cost of the construction must be stated. If the Minister of Railways has not approved of the construction of these highways at the cost stated, then he has not approved of them at all; if he approves of them at all he must approve the estimated cost. I submit, therefore, that as these highways have not been approved by the Department of Railways, in accordance with the requirements of the federal Act, this committee has nothing to do with them; they are wholly within the jurisdiction of the provincial legislature.
