It is in the bill. What
difference does it make whether I knew it on Monday or Wednesday? It is in the bill and the people of Toronto want this item passed. It is true that is not an argument why it should be passed but I am stating the facts in
opposition to what has been said by hon. members opposite. There are some people opposed to this, always have been since 1913 and before. Those, generally speaking, are people who pass their summers on the island, they want it kept exclusively for themselves. But hundreds of thousands of the common people of Toronto want to get over there, and for the moment they are prevented because they have to pay two fares to get there. This will allow them to get on the island for one street railway fare from whatever part of Toronto in which they happen to live.
