?

The MINISTER OP RAILWAYS AND CANALS.

How would it be possible to insure the possession by the board of such information as would enable them to determine whether there was discrimination or not, if you allow the companies to make such charge as they please without furnishing the information as to what charge they have made ?
Hon. Mr. HAGGART What possible object is it for the board to know. They only want to know whether there has been discrimination or not. But, if there has been no discrimination against an individual or against a place, what possible object is it for the board to know whether the tariff charged is lower than that allowed by the board or not ?
