January 29, 1912

Mr. CLARKE (Essex).

I desire to ask the Postmaster General (Mr. Pelletier) whether an announcement is to be made at an early day as to the extension of the rural mail delivery. I understand that there is tsome question of extending it so that all the roads in a settled municipality may have it. I would ask the Postmaster General if that is likely to be announced, and if so when?

Mr. CLARKE (Essex).

The chairman is waiting for the arrival of the members of the committee. One was here the second day of the session, one only arrived yesterday, and another has not arrived yet. As soon as all the members are here, it is the intention to call the committee together.

Mr. CLARKE (Essex).

If you look at the old section, you will find it provides: that no person whose animals are killed by

any train shall have a right of action if they were killed by reason of any one, for whose use any farm crossing is furnished, failing to keep the gate on such railway crossing closed.

Mr. CLARKE (Essex).

have not been able to get paid for them, whatever the reason may be. In discussing this question with men of some legal ability, they take the ground that we ought to wipe out all this excrescence of language and show clearly that, no matter who may be in fault, the railway company shall pay for the cattle except under certain specified exceptions. This Bill is plainer than the present Act and it leaves less room for expensive lawsuits and gives greater facility to the farmers to get paid for their cattle. However, I do not want to detain the House. If my hon. friends opposite insist, we will drop the clause for the present and take it up when we meet again and let the rest of the Bill go through
