George Perry Graham (Minister of Railways and Canals)
I regret that I am not able to answer the hon. gentleman in the language he has used, but I may surprise the House some day by undertaking to do that. In the meantime, I think it will be sufficient to assure my hon. friend from L'Assomption (Mr. Seguin) and my hon. friend from Laval (Mr. Wilson) that I am glad they have brought this matter up. As I understand the remarks of the hon. member for L'Assomption, a grant of $150,000 was made for the construction of that bridge. There is an island in the centre of the river, and the bridge really developed into two bridges, using the island as a means of communication between these two bridges. The complaint made is that the
roadway on this island connecting these two bridges is in a very bad condition, and the people complained bitterly. I will take the matter up, and if there is anything possible I can do to straighten it out and have this road put in proper shape I will certainly do so.
