John Dowsley Reid (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Unionist

Hon. Mr. REID:

Five hundred miles of railway track was lifted, of which three hundred came from the Transcontinental, between Moncton and Winnipeg, and two hundred from the Grand Trunk Pacific in the mountain section. These rails were shipped to France, and the British Government has paid all out-of-pocket expenses. The balance due is under investigation; we have not yet received settlement.
