John Dowsley Reid (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Unionist

Mr. J. D. REID:

I think I gave a statement some time ago of the earnings of each part of the Canadian National Railway system, but if not, I can give the figures for this particular line when my Estimates are up. The loss is not very great to the Dominion Government. The 40 per cent does not come near paying the interest on

the bonds, but, of course, the provincial Government must stand that loss.

Topic:   QUESTIONS PASSED AS ORDERS FOR RETURNS.
Subtopic:   ST. JOHN AND QUEBEC RAILWAY.
