Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. J. W. DANIEL (St. John City).

Before the Orders of the Day are called, I would like to ask the attention of the Minister of Railways to the new time table which is to be put into effect on the Intercolonial Railway, I think, on the 4th or 5th of this month. At the present time the express from St. John leaves that city in the morning at 7 o'clock. Under the new time table that time has been advanced one hour, so that the train leaves at 6 o'clock in the morning. I am advised that there is a great deal of dissatisfaction with regard to this change, and that it will be a very considerable trouble to tbe travelling public, and there is dissatisfaction among that class of people on that account. I would like to ask from the Minister of Railways i'f it is not possible for him to continue the running Mr. FIELDING.
of that train leaving St. John at 7 o'clock as at present. I believe the change will be a very unsatisfactory one. I understand it relates to tbe Halifax express alone, find I cannot see what advantage there would be in the change. I hope the Minister of Railways will reconsider that change and, in the interest of the travelling public, allow the train to leave at 7 o'clock in the morning and not change it to 6 o'clock.
