Winfield Chester Scott McLure

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. W. C. S. McLURE (Queens):

I should like, to direct the attention of the Minister of Railways and Canals (Mr. Manion) to the ice conditions now prevailing in Northumberland strait, which have caused serious trouble with reference to shipments of freight to and from Prince Edward Island. At the present time over 1,100 cars of freight are, held up because of these ice conditions. I should like to know what action the Department of Railways has taken to relieve this condition.
