June 30, 1903 (9th Parliament, 3rd Session)

Conservative (1867-1942)


This section seems to introduce a new principle into the Act, that is, not allowing a company to charge lower rates than the rates approved of by the board. I think the companies ought to be allowed to charge lower rates provided they do not discriminate against individuals or places. If the company think it is to their interest, perhaps at a particular season of the year, when they are competing with water transportation, to charge lower rates than those fixed by the board, why should they not be allowed to do so ?
