CON

Glenlyon Campbell

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CAMPBELL moved :

For a copy of all orders in counoil, corres-, pondence and other papers relating to the fishing lease granted to one Markey in the waters of the Nelson river and other northern waters; and of all correspondence with regard to the proposed cancellation of same, and a copy of the said lease.
He said : Mr. Speaker, in making this motion, I do not want to bring in any contentious matter. All I want is to have the information brought down, and I feel sure that the minister will bring it down. My impression was that he had assured me that these fishing leases had all been cancelled. It is a matter of grave import to this country that they should be cancelled, particularly this one. In the event of the Hudson Bay railway being built, this lease, which cost $10 a year, will be of immense value. For that reason I hope that the fullest information that can be given to this House will be given by the minister. Later on, when I have the information, I will bring the matter up.
