Mr. GRAY:

The Minister of Justice is cognizant of the fact that there are cases in which the district or county judge has power to grant appeal, and I trust that in the drafting of the new7 clause that power will not be taken away.

Mr. GRAY:

The minister misunderstands

me. I suggest that trial judge here must include, of necessity, county or district judges as well as judges of the superior court.

Mr. R. W. GRAY (West Lambton):

Mr. Speaker, as this discussion is closed, I would like to reply briefly to the hon. member for East Algoma (Mr. Nicholson), who has placed on Hansard an article which appeared in the Ottawa Journal. The hon. member stated that according to this article, which he read into Hansard, no mention was made of the fact that there was to be any federal cooperation in the building of the trans-Canada highway and that Mr. Finlayson did not so state. I desire to read into Hansard an article which appeared in the Northern Tribune of Kapus-kasing. This article deals with a visit of the Hon. Mr. Finlayson to Kapuskasing on June 5, and is headed as follows:

Hon. Wm. Finlayson Visits Town Critical of Land-Clearing Bonuses

In the course of the article appears the following paragraph:

Concerning the trans-Canada highway, he said that the differences of opinion in the north as to the route had given pause to the government. By arrangement with the federal government, three survey parties would go over the ground this season and get all the reliable data they could.

That shows quite clearly that the hon. member for North Timiskaming (Mr. Bradette) was quite right in bringing up this question. In spite of what has been said by the hon. member for East Algoma and the announcement made by the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett) in his usual manner that the matter is now closed, I think we may take it that this article which was published in Kapuskasing gives the correct version of the whole matter.
