Conservative (1867-1942)


They have them and
they are using them. It is time for the Government to strike out those extensions which they have been coaxed to strike out. Why should the Government leave them in the estimates? Hon. gentlemen opposite represent the people there; they know what their constituents want, and they say those extensions are of no use to the electors, ratepayers, and citizens of various constituencies in Nova Scotia. Under the circumstances, I would for once go over the heads of the department who have recommended those public benefits and say to the hon. member for Guysborough (Mr. Sinclair): All right, we will cut out your extension telegraph service; and I would say the same to the hon. member for Inverness (Mr. Chisholm).
