The hon. member has put the situation exactly as I understand1 it. This is an enabling bill. The government may lend the railway company money, or the railway company may borrow from the public money which the government will guarantee. As I said two or three times, that is all we are doing. We are not rushing out now to buy. It is enabling legislation so that we can convert these as they come due, and to the best advantage. The suggestion made by the hon. member will certainly be considered when these transactions take place.
