Mr. FITZPATRICK.

I am quite agreeable. I may state now that it is my inten-

tion to ask that the reference in the Bill to Algoma be eliminated. That is to say there will be no exceptional treatment as to Algoma and therefore the Bill will be applicable simply to certain counties in British Columbia and the province of Quebec.

Progress reported.
