Hon. George C. Marler (Minister of Transport):
Mr. Speaker, in answer to a question some time ago by the hon. member for Brandon-Souris (Mr. Dinsdale) and in response to personal inquiries by the hon. member for Portage-Neepawa (Mr. Weir), I informed the house that it was not the intention to make Brandon North a stop for the Super Continental.
The Canadian National Railways now advise that in the light of actual experience of two weeks' operation of the new train the management are satisfied that the Super Continental can make a conditional stop at Brandon North without interfering with schedules. Accordingly, it has been decided that a conditional stop will be made at Brandon North for passengers to or from Nakina and east, or to or from Edmonton and west.
