Mr. NESBITT.

I would point out to hen. gentleman that the Railway Committee has laid down the principle this year, that they would not oppose the granting of such charters as this, and the Minister of Railways has himself emphatically stated two or three times in the House that such is the policy of parliament. I do not see how the members of the west are going to benefit their people by refusing to extend these charters. If I thought it would benefit the people I would vote in favour of it, because I have great sympathy with the people in the west who are badly in need of railway facilities in some districts. I have not the least doubt in the world that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company will build this line of railway and other lines similarly situated just as soon as they are able, and when this particular branch line is built it will be operated in connection with one of the largest and best managed railways in the world and

will afford every facility to the people, and I do not agree with the contention that the existence of this charter stops other people from getting charters, because I have not the slightest doubt that if any other company wants to build a railway over this route they can apply to parliament tomorrow and they will get a charter, probably whether they intend to build or not.This is a prairie country, there are nopasses to go through, there is room for any number of roads, and there is no blocking nr blanketing. I think the hon. gentlemen from the Northwest who have spoken

against this Bill are standing in their own light.
