I think the hon. member will find that these subsidies were not subsidies of this House but that they were granted prior to Confederation.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

The hon. gentleman must remember that the question referred to subsidies granted by this House. It did not refer to' provincial subsidies or municipal grants. The only money which the Grand Trunk, as I understand it, 'has ever received from this Parliament is the sum of $15,000,000. That is shown in the r.eport as $15,142,633 and the amount of $142,633 is the interest that has been charged on the investment.
