Mr. LANCASTER:

My hon. friend can

hardly call that a policy. What we concluded was that each tub should stand on its own bottom, and that each Bill should be

dealt with on its own unique facts and particular merits, believing that there might be cases in which in the interest of the public and not too harmful to the progress of the company, they should be cut down to one year. We did that in some cases and refused to do it in others. So far as I was concerned, I advised in the committee-perhaps advised is too strong a word to use-but I suggested that each Bill should be treated on its own special merits. And where one company might get two years to commence and five years to finish, another company might get only one year to commence, and, in fact, in some cases, it might not be found desirable to extend the charter at all. It was not a policy for any fixed time exactly that was laid down by the com. mittee.

Mr. LANCASTER:

That is from a point on the Kleinburg-Sudbury branch, between Bolton junction and Palgrave, and westerly through the counties of Peel and Halton to a point on the Ontario and Quebec railway near Canipbellville.

On section 4:

The company may sell, lease or charter any steam or other vessels of the company to the Canadian Pacific Ocean Services Limited, an incorporated company, or to any other incorporated company duly empowered to acquire, hold, own, maintain or operate steam or other vessels upon such terms and for such considerations as may be determined by the boards of directors of the companies respectively.
