There has been a great deal of loss suffered by farmers. I remember a man who had twelve or fifteen cows;
they got out on the line during the night through accident and were killed and he got no compensation. They talk about having a cattleguard. The hon. member for Carleton says that they have wooden slats in some places and that in others they have iron. Of course, these guards are frequently out of repair. They have another kind constructed of square sticks and the cattle walk right over it.
