I think it was before
Confederation. If no appropriation is made this year for making repairs to that road, I hope the minister will see that the matter is attended to next year.
This road should not be neglected. It is the only road we have. It should be widened. In some places it is only from twelve to fifteen feet wide, and travellers complain that in some parts the telegraph poles are right in the middle of the road. Steps should have been taken long ago to compel the Great Northwestern Telegraph Company to move those poles to one side of the road. This should be done as soon as is convenient.
