I may say to the hon. member for Eimouski (Mr. Boulay) that all the men on the Intercolonial railway belong to organizations-the trainmen,
enginemen, trackmen, and so on. When any punishment that is unfair is meted out to any of them, the organization is soon after the management to see that the matter is put right. I am perfectly willing to leave it to the organizations to say
whether pustice has been done or not, because we have no word from them, although the accidents happened some time ago. When men get careless, lives are lost, and punishment must be meted out. If we let them go without punishment, the travelling public and the men themselves would not be protected.
