Mr. R. L. BORDEN.
Looking at section 1 of this Bill, I observe that it omits certain words
I presume by inadvertence-which were contained in the second section of the Act of last year which is sought to be amended by the present Bill. If my hon.
friend the Minister of Justice (Mr. Fitzpatrick) will look at section 2, of the Act of last year, he will see that it reads as follow's :
The agreement, a copy of which forms the schedule to this Act, (hereinafter called ' The Agreement ' is hereby ratified and confirmed, and declared to be legally binding upon His Majesty and the Grand Trunk Railway Company (hereinafter called * the Company ') subject to the provisions of this Act.
I would suggest that similar words should he introduced into the first section of this Bill and that section 1, of the Bill should be amended by inserting after the word ' company ' where it first appears in line 10, the words ' subject to the provisions of the National Transcontinental Railway Act and of this Act.'
