About a mile and a half. I think that the request I make of the government is perfectly reasonable. To show the absurdity of the present arrangement let me state the position as it is. A freight train to-day leaves Inverness town, goes to the junction and then right ou into the government terminals at Point Tupper, where it transfers its freight comfortably. But a train loaded with passengers leaves soon after and is treated very differently.
The passengers are dumped in a swamp, the most hideous looking place along the Intercolonial Railway.
I was determined, before these votes went through, to call the attention of the Minister of Railways to this matter, in order that at least, he should give the matter attention when the Supplementary Estimates are being prepared, or arrange with the company, as I have indicated, that they might use the government terminals at Point Tup-per. I certainly refuse to hold a seat in this House quietly and silently while this abuse of the people X represent goes on.
