Section 3 of the Bill provides that subject to the provisions of this Act municipalities and landowners shall have the right of drainage on and across the property of any railway company to the same extent and by the same proceeding as they have by law on and across the property of any other landholders. This is subject to the provision that the railway company shall have the option of itself constructing a portion of the drains crossing its own land. In this I think we would be adopting the laws of the provinces, as they are now. and as they may subsequently be amended. Such is the intention at all events.
