Mr. P. A. SEGUIN.

We instantly request the government to send an inspector thex-e and to have the necessary repairs made.

Last year, to prevent circulation from being altogether interrupted at that place which, had become dangerous, some people clubbed together in making ameliorations, and I had to put up some money myself towards that and the work we have done has been rather temporary, did not give a very passable road but rendered it less perilous.

And now that road is almost impassable. I think it is incumbent upon the government, who have granted leave to use that island instead of building a bridge over it, to relieve the travelling public which is suffering so much from that situation. Therefore. I humbly suggest to the hon. Minister of Railways that it is high time that redress be given to the thousands and thousands of people using that bridge, and that within the shortest delay an inspection and a report be made if need be, in order to fix the responsibilities of the subsidized company and to have it fulfilling its obligations.

Thus justice will be rendered to my constituents.
