2-2 THE SENATE 12 GEO. V 

The Senate was adjourned during pleasure. 

After a while, His Excellency the Governor General having come, and being 
seated on the Throne, 

His Honour the Speaker commanded the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod to 
proceed to the Plouse of Commons and acquaint that House that, It is His Excellency 
the Governor General s pleasure that they attend him immediately in the Senate. 

Who being come, their Speaker, the Honourable Eodolphe Lemieux, said: 

May it please Your Excellency, 

The House of Commons has elected me their Speaker, though I am but little 
able to fulfil the important duties thus assigned to me. 

If, in the performance of those duties, I should at any time fall into error, I 
pray that the fault may be imputed to me, and not to the Commons, whose servant 
I am, and who, through me, the better to enable them to discharge their duty to their 
King and Country, humbly claim all their undoubted rights and privileges, especially 
that they may have freedom of speech in their debates, access to Your Excellency s 
person at all seasonable times, and that their proceedings may receive from Your 
Excellency the most favourable interpretation. 

The Honourable the Speaker of the Senate answered: 

Mr. SPEAKER, I am commanded by His Excellency the Governor General to 
declare to you that he freely confides in the duty and attachment of the House of 
Commons to His Majesty s Person and Government, and not doubting that their 
proceedings will be conducted with wisdom, temper and prudence he grants and upon 
all occasions will recognize and allow their constitutional privileges. I am commanded 
also to assure you that the Commons shall have ready access to His Excellency upon 
all seasonable occasions, and that their proceedings as well as your words and actions, 
will constantly receive from him the most favourable construction. 

His Excellency the Governor General was then pleased to open the Session by a 
Gracious Speech to both Houses, as follows : 

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 

I desire on this occasion to assure you that it is with great satisfaction that I 

Parliament of the Dominion for the first time since my arrival in Canada, and 

avail myself of your assistance and advice in carrying out the important duties that 

Majesty the King has entrusted to me as his Representative. It is, indeed 
a great privilege to be called upon to administer the affairs of the Dominion and 
to associate myself with you in the work you are about to begin. 

Our Dominion has not escaped the world-wide economic disturbance and indus 
trial depression but has suffered less from it than other countries. Keen observers 
of the business barometer feel that the worst is about over and that at an early 
date we may look for a substantial revival of activity. 

In many parts of the Dominion continued depression of business naturally 
produced, in a much larger degree than usual, the misfortune of unemployment. 
Whilst of the opinion that unemployment relief is fundamentally a municipal and 
provincial responsibility, my Government has felt that as conditions have arisen 
in a measure out of the late war, they would be justified in continuing for the period 
of the winter months the expedient of supplementing by grants from the Federal 
Treasury the relief contributions of Provinces and Municipalities for the purpose 
of alleviating actual distress. 



o 



A.D. 1922 MARCH 9 23 

The decline of prices in farm prochicte in 1921, as compared with the prices 
of previous years, has seriously affected agriculture in many parts of the Dominion. 
The ill-effects of this inevitable deflation have been emphasized by restricted markets 
and the absence of any corresponding reduction in the cost of production. While 
unproved methods of culture, grading and storage of farm crops in some parts, 
and greater diversification in others, would materially better conditions, it is apparent 
that adequate markets and marketing facilities and reduced transportation and pro 
duction costs lie at the root of the problem. Recognizing such to be the case, my 
advisers have lost no time in seeking to gain more favourable conditions of sale and 
marketing for the products of the farm. Communications have been opened with the 
authorities of other countries looking to an extension of trade and a widening of 
Canadian markets, and conferences have been arranged between the railway auth 
orities with respect to the reduction of rates upon basic commodities. 

You will be invited to consider the expediency of making some changes in the 
Customs Tariff. While there are details of revision, the consideration of which will 
require time and care that are not at present available, there are features of the 
tariff which it is felt may properly be dealt with during the present session. 

In order that Government ownership and operation of our national railways 
now extending through every province of the Dominion may be given a fair trial 
under the most favourable conditions, it is intended at an early date to co-ordinate 
the Government-owned systems in the manner best calculated to increase efficiency, 
and to effect economies in administration, maintenance and operation. The whole 
transportation situation is one which will require your best attention. It weighs 
heavily upon our national finances. To assist in obtaining the information essential 
to an exact understanding and an adequate appreciation of the problem in its many 
bearings, it is proposed to supplement the work of co-ordination by a thorough enquiry. 

The stream of immigration to the Dominion was much interrupted and restricted 
during the war. Now that the blessing of peace is with us, a renewal of efforts to 
bring in new settlers must be made. My Government are fully alive to t/ie import 
ance of this question and will use every reasonable endeavour to attract to our country 
people of the most desirable class, with particular regard to settlement on our unde 
veloped lands. 

The work in connection with the re-establishment, medical treatment and voca 
tional training of former members of the Canadian Forces is being sympathetically 
and energetically prosecuted. The care of the disabled still demands the best thought 
of those who are charged with the duty of administering the benefits provided- It is 
intended, during the coming session, again to consult Parliament concerning some of 
the problems still remaining. 

The long standing question of granting the control of the natural resources of 
three Western Provinces to their respective Provincial Governments has engaged 
the attention of my Ministers. Sympathizing with the desire of the authorities of 
these Provinces, which have now advanced to maturity, to have the same control and 
management of their resources as is possessed by the older Provinces, my Govern 
ment have made a proposal to the Governments of the several Provinces concerned, 
^hich it is hoped may lead to a satisfactory settlement of the question at an early 
date. 

With the object of promoting economy and increasing efficiency, a Bill will be 
submitted to you, providing for a Department of Defence, in which the various 
branches of the defence forces of Canada will be co-ordinated under one ministerial 
head. 

During the interval since the last Parliament, there has been held in Washington 
on the invitation of the President of the United States an International Conference 
to consider an agreed limitation of armaments and in connection therewith to reach 
an understanding concerning the political relations of the Powers interested in ths 
regions of the Pacific and the Far East. From this Conference treaties of far reaching 

S 3 



24 THE SENATE 12 GEO. V 

consequence have resulted. It is the opinion of my advisers that approval of Parlia 
ment ought to precede their ratification on behalf of Canada. The treaties with appro 
priate explanations will accordingly be placed before you during the session. 

As the result of recent discussions among the Powers, it has been decided to hold 
at Genoa a Conference with the object of securing, through frank and amicable 
consultation among the nations who have been at war, a concerted effort to repair the 
grave dislocations in the economic and financial field that have everywhere followed 
the war. The Government of Canada has been invited to participate and delegates 
have been appointed for the purpose. 

An invitation has been extended to the Government of Canada by the Government 
of the United States to take part in a Postal Conference, at which all phases of mail 
communication from one country to the other may be fully discussed. Eeciprocating 
the spirit that has prompted the invitation, the Canadian Government will, in due 
course, appoint representatives to meet the representatives of the United States for the 
purpose mentioned. 

.Ifi tubers of the House of Commons: 

The Public Accounts for the last fiscal year will be laid before you. At an early 
date the Estimates for the coming year will be submitted. In their preparation 
imperative need for economy has rendered necessary the non-inclusion of many under 
takings, appropriations for which must await a more favourable financial situation. 

Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 

In inviting your careful consideration of the important matters which will engage 
your attention, I pray that Divine Providence may guide and bless your deliberations. 

His Excellency the Governor General was pleased to retire. 

The Commons withdrew. 

After some time the Senate was resumed. 



PRAYERS. 

The Honourable the Speaker informed the Senate that there was a Senator 
without waiting to be introduced. 

The Right Honourable Sir George Eulas Foster was introduced between the 
Honourable Sir James Lougheed and the Honourable Mr. Foster (Alma), and having

On motion of the Honourable Mr. Dandurand, it was 

Ordered, That pursuant to Rule 77 the following Senators, to wit: The Hon 
ourable Sir James Lougheed, K.C.M.G., The Honourable Messieurs Belcourt, Barnard, 
Daniel, Prowse, Robertson, Tanner, Watson, Willoughby and the mover, be appointed 
,a Committee of Selection to nominate Senators to serve on the several Standing 
Committees during the present Session; and to report with all convenient speed the 
names of the Senators so nominated. 

His Honour the Speaker presented to the Senate the Report of the Joint 
Librarians of Parliament, for the year 1921. 

The same was then read by the Clerk, as follows: 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARIANS FOR 1921 

To the Honourable the Speaker of the House of Commons: 

The Joint Librarians have the honour to submit the following report for the year 
1921: 

The undersigned record with regret the death of Mr. Martin J. Griffin, which 
occurred on March 19, 1921. Mr. Griffin, after a service of thirty-five years as Parlia 
mentary Librarian, retired on July 7, 1920. His extensive knowledge of parliamentary 
and political literature was widely recognized, and his loss will be felt by many users 
of the Library, and by those who came in contact with his helpful and richly-stored 
mind. 

A list of donations to the Library and of copyright works will be submitted. 

The Supplementary Catalogue of those books purchased since the last report is 
now in the hands of the printers, and will be laid before the Houses of Parliament 
without delay. 

From the British Museum has lately been received as a gift a valuable work by 
Sir G. F. "Warner, in four volumes, with the title " Catalogue of "Western Manuscripts 
in the old Royal and King s Collection." The work is in folio and consists of copies 
of the Manuscript Library of George the Third. The fourth volume is of special 
interest, and is composed of plates illustrative of the manuscript copies of early 
Bibles, and other documents, covering the period from the 5th to the 15th century. 

The undersigned desire to refer in special terms of appreciation to a valuable 
and large collection of books given to the Library by the late Edward Bruce Bates, of 
Ottawa. Mr. Bates was for forty-one years in the Ottawa post office, latterly as 
deputy-postmaster. He was a student and whole-hearted lover of books, and highly 
esteemed by those who knew him. By the terms of his will, the Trustees were " to 
allow the Chief Librarian, or Librarians of the Parliamentary Library at Ottawa to 
select from my library such books as he or they shall see fit." 

The books in question consist of more than four thousand volumes. They have 
been stored in the vaults for the time being, and when proper space is arranged during 
the present year they will be duly catalogued and kept in a special room. 

Amongst some of the volumes of interest may be mentioned the following: 

Editions de luxe of Goethe s Faust, Cervantes Don Quixote, the Rubaiyat of 
Omar Khayam, Walton s Compleat Angler, etc. The Complete works, in fine editions, 
of Ruskin, Macaulay, Lord Beaconsfield, Kipling, Richardson, Jeremy Taylor, Swift 
Carlyle, Washington Irving, Newman, Hazlitt and many other well-known authors. 
Shakespeare s Poems and Pericles ; facsimile of 1st edition. Shakespeare s 
Comedies, Histories and Tragedies ; facsimile of 1st folio edition, 1623. Chaucer ; 
facsimile of 1st collected edition in British Museum, 1532. " Jesuit Relations and 



A.D. 1922 MAKCH 9 27 

Allied Documents," in 73 volumes (Thwaites edition). Complete works of many of 
the chief poets. A number of the best French classics. A large number of dictionaries 
of various languages, of Bibles in different languages, and of books of scenery of 
various countries. 

Some disorganization of the exchange system of the Library has taken place 
during the past five years, resulting in the falling off of receipts of the Laws and Ses 
sional Papers of various governments of the United States. Owing to the congested 
space of the Library, it was decided to obtain if possible the missing laws of those 
States of which broken sets existed, and to refrain from any attempt to collect other 
documents, with the exception of those from New York State, which had been well 
kept up. As a result there has been received by the courtesy of various State 
Librarians a fairly complete collection of the Laws. These, and all the documents of 
the United States Federal Government, have been placed in classified order in the 
ground floor room obtained from the House of Commons, referred to in the last report. 

The two rooms on the ground floor which were obtained by the courtesy of the 
Senate, and which were fitted up with steel shelving by the Public Works Depart 
ment, are now occupied by the Sessional Papers of the House of Lords, and by reserve 
sets of the Canadian Statutes, Sessional Papers, Debates, etc., in both languages. 

Eeference was made in the report of last year to the congested state of the 
Library, and the difficulty which is necessarily found in endeavouring to shelve books 
in a way which will prove most convenient to the users of the Library. It was dis 
covered last year that there was a considerable amount of unused space between the 
inner and outer walls on the south side of the Library. After a conference with the 
Public Works Department, it was considered feasible to utilize this space. Funds were 
allocated for the purpose, and the work has progressed to a point when the shelving 
can be undertaken. The undersigned appreciate the assistance of the Deputy Minister 
of Public Works and the Chief Architect and his officers in thus providing a series 
of small rooms, which it is thought will accommodate some thirty thousand volumes, 
and temporarily relieve congestion. It is proposed during the present year to transfer 
to these rooms a large number of the book? from the Parliamentary, Economic and 
Law Sections, and also collections of Canadian publications, thus making the works 
in those departments more accessible, and if possible to remove from the main floor 
some of the racks which somewhat obscure the beauty of the interior and impair its- 
utility. 

It is respectfully pointed out, however, that these measures can provide only a 
temporary solution of the problem facing the Library, and any effective scheme in a 
broad way of reorganization, cataloguing and shelving can only be profitably attempted 
when a new and modern building is constructed. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

2. In the Second Report of the Committee, Session of 1920, it was recommended 
that each Department of the Government be required annually to prepare its printing 
estimates to cover all services, including the annual report. The foregoing recom 
mendation having been approved by Parliament, effect was given thereto by Order 
in Council of 18th August, 1920 (P.C. 1940). 

With the exception of the Auditor General s Office, all Departments of the 
Government made the necessary provision in their estimates last Session for the 
payment of the printing of the annual reports. No such provision, however, was 
made by the Auditor General, as he considered that Order in Council ISTo. 1940 applied 
only to public departments, and not to himself, as being an officer of Parliament. 

Under these circumstances, the Committee recommend that the account to cover 
the cost of printing the Auditor General s Report for the year 192 0-21 be assumed by 
the Department of Public Printing and Stationery, and charged against the appro 
priation of 1921-22 for "Miscellaneous Printing." 

The Committee further recommends that future payments for the printing of 
the report of the Auditor General be provided for in the estimates of the Audit 
Office, in the same manner as for the several departments of the Government. 

In order that a proper estimate can be made of the number of bound sets of 
Sessional Papers required for distribution to the members of both Houses during 
the Parliamentary recess, the Committee has instructed the Editorial Committee 
to communicate with every Senator and member of the House of Commons with a 
view to ascertaining their requirements. 

All of which is respectfully submitted. 

SMEATON WHITE, 

Chairman. 

Ordered, That the said Report be placed on the Orders of the Day for considera 
tion to-morrow.

A.T). 1922 JUNE 9 273 

The evidence submitted to the Committee establishes the fact that at least half, 
and some witnesses affirm as much as SO per cent, of the wheat raised in the Prairie 
Provinces and exported overseas, is so exported through United States seaports. 

The Quebec Board of Trade submitted a copy of a Memorial which they had 
presented to the Kailway Commission, at its session in Quebec on the 3rd February, 
1921, according; to which, as stated in Government reports, the movement of all 
grain, by water, from Tort William, during six years, from 1912 to 1918, was as 
follows : 

to Canadian lakeports 577,888,581 bushels. 

to Buffalo and other U. S. lakeports.. .. 518,762,749 



Total 1,096,651,330 bushels 

and the Memorial further stated that of the 577 million bushels shipped to Canadian 
lake ports, probably two thirds were for the use of Canadian flour mills and a large 
quantity for seed grain in Ontario and Quebec, so that the quantity exported over 
seas from Canadian seaports was very small. The great bulk of the 518 million 
bushels sent through Buffalo was for export, because the quantity of Canadian wheat 
consumed in the United States is very limited, owing to the heavy customs duty. 

All the witnesses examined seem to admit that this diversion of our export trade 
had taken place and gave various reason.; for it which may be summarized as 
follows : 

(a) The attraction of better distribution centres, such as New York, which 
always has abundant ocean tonnage for all parts of the world; 

(b) The abundance of elevator storage at Fort William and at Buffalo; 

(c) The cheapness of the lake and rail transportation via Buffalo to New York 
which, at that time, was about 4 to 5 centt per bushel cheaper than the all rail rate 
to Quebec or Montreal. And though the all water rate to Montreal is a trifle cheaper 
than to New York, via Buffalo, the saving does not seem to attract much business, 
probably because of the cheaper marine insurance from New York. 

(d) The cheaper marine insurance from New York and all United States sea 
ports, as compared with the St. Lawrence rates which are increased periodically after 
August. So that, although Quebec, Halifax and St. John enjoy rates 10 per cent 
cheaper than Montreal, they are considerably higher than the underwriters charge 
New York, Boston and Portland. 

The remedies suggested are various. The Quebec Board of Trade ask that the 
Government or the Eailway Commission should make an all rail freight rate over 
the Government Transcontinental Railway from Winnipeg to Quebec or Montreal of 
20 cents per bushel on export wheat with proportionate rates to Halifax and St. 
John, instead of 36 cents called for by the tariff at that time, and as compared with 
32 cents lake and rail to New York (both these rates have since been somewhat 
reduced, but the Comparison remains the same). They contend that this would force 
the trade to Canadian seaports and would save the farmer of the Northwest 12 cents 
per bushel, whilst being fairly profitable to the railway, as the cost, including the cost 
of hauling back empty cars, would not exceed 17 cents. 

The Quebec Board .of Trade also ask that the Government should build grain 
storage for 10 million bushels at each of the ports of Quebec, Halifax and St. John 
Montreal being already fairly provided for so as to ensure a continuous grain 
traffic for the Government railways; that some of the Government steamships should 
lie put into this service, so as to ensure cheap ocean rates for the crop of the Western 
farmers, and that the Government should arrange with, or guarantee the marine 
underwriters, so that marine insurance from Canadian ports shall be no higher than 
from New York, which, it is alleged, would not on the average cost the Government 



274 THE SENATE 13 GEO- V 

anything. In support of their suggestion for 30 million bushels storage at our sea 
ports, the Board of Trade point out that there is storage for 2*00 million bushels in 
the Prairie Provinces and on the Upper Lakes, and for only 20 millions at our sea 
ports. So that when the grain moves our seaports become congested and it is driven 
to Buffalo where, according to General Tremblay s evidence, there is storage for 100 
million bushels. 

The officials of the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National Railways, who gave 
evidence, do not seem so sanguine as to regaining this diverted traffic. Mr. Lanigan, 
of the C.P.R., points out the advantages of New York because of a larger ocean 
tonnage available for all points, and states that although Montreal has a lower lake 
and rail rate than New York by 13/10 cents per bushel, yet New York gets the busi 
ness. He addds that "the canal route is not a great factor. It is too slow." He 
favors the Georgian Bay, Port McNicoll, route. 

Mr. Hayes, of the Canadian National Railways, admits that, in 1916, he made a 
rate of six cents per bushel over the Transcontinental railway, from Armstrong to 
Quebec. 960 miles, and did a large business. But he says he was forced to do BO owing 
to congestion. He also used the same rate to Montreal, but in the latter case he was 
obliged to give a share of the rate to the Grand Trunk and Temiscaming and Northern 
Ontario Railway (why he should have done so does not appear, seeing that the Gov 
ernment might have got the whole of the earnings by using their own line to Mont 
real, via Hervey Junction). Mr. Hayes say; he does not want to make a paper rate that 
means nothing, but that if h e had an offer of a round quantity of grain from a Western 
point, he could quote "a rate considerably lower than the present rate." 

Mr. Thomas Harling, of Montreal, said that he had used the port of Quebec as 
well as Montreal, and that Quebec is open in the fall for six weeks longer than Mont 
real, but the marine insurance rates from the St. Lawrence go up in the autumn 
until they reach a figure 50 per cent dearer than New York. 

Mr. J. A. Richardson, of Kingston, said that he ships grain from Montreal 
as well as New York, and has shipped some from Quebec. He thinks that a better 
cable service would help the Canadian grain trade, and that he could arrange ahead 
for sales and shipments through Quebec if a better rate of inland freight were 
quoted. He claims that wheat of Canadian inspection is worth three cents per 
bushel more in England. 

Brigadier-General Tremblay, member of the Quebec Harbour Commission, 
recalled the fact that the Transcontinental railway from Winnipeg to Quebec 
1,350 miles is 200 miles shorter than any other line, and has maximum grades of 
four tenths of one per cent, making it possible to haul as many as eighty loaded cars. 
He figured that wheat could be carried from Winnipeg to Quebec, including the cost 
of hauling back all the cars empty, at a cost of 18 cents per bushel, from which should 
be deducted the earnings on any freight carried westward. 

Dr. Magill, secretary of the Winnipeg Grain Exchange, says in his evidence that 
in order to ship wheat all rail from Winnipeg it would be necessary to build an 
assembling point, or storage, somewhere on the line of the railway, and he did not 
think Quebec a suitable point, because doing so would mean to give up the Cana 
dian flour mill market and the American market, and to limit the owner of the grain 
to the export market. 

Mr. J. G. Scott, Chairman of the Transportation Committee of the Quebec Board 
of Trade, said that when he was General Manager of the Great Northern Railway of 
Canada, he brought wheat in large quantity over that road and the Canada Atlantic, 
in conjunction with Mr. J. R. Booth and M. E. J. Ohamberlin, from Parry Sound 
to Quebec, 550 miles, for five cents per bushel, handling as much as three million 



A.D. 1922 JUNE 9 275 

bushels per annum for three years, 1901 to 1903. Keferring to the Memorial of the 
Quebec Board of Trade, as to using the Transcontinental, he figured that, roughly 
speaking, Canada had paid $40,000,000 to $50,000,000 to American railroads for 
carrying our grain from Buffalo to New York 518 million bushels during six years 
that might have been spent in Canada, if it had been possible to export that grain 
from Canadian instead of American seaports. In his opinion the only way to get 
this trade back is for the Government to make a radical cut in the all rail rate over 
the Transcontinental railway from Winnipeg to Montreal and Quebec, with low rates 
to Halifax and St. John, use the Government steamships to carry the grain, adjust 
the marine insurance rates, and provide grain storage at our seaports. According 
to his figures, 20 cents per bushel would be a profitable rate to bring wheat over 
the Transcontinental railway from Winnipeg to Quebec, and if that rate were made 
the trade would have to come, and doing so would not affect the Georgian Bay 
ports, nor the lake trade of Canadian vessels, as the competition would be only for the 
trade that now goes to New York. He quoted the Chairman of the Eailway Com 
mission, Mr. Carvell, as having told the Board of Trade, in Quebec, that if he 
granted them the 20 cents rate they asked for "the eastern Canada seaports would be 
flooded with grain." 

Honourable Mr. W. H. Bennett, afte^ closely following the whole inquiry, has 
expressed his views on the subject as follows : 

"The Dominion of Canada is now the owner, or will be under the arrangement 
with the Grand Trunk Railway Company of two lines of railway from the Georgian 
Bay at Midland and Depot Harbour to Montreal, as also a line from Collingwood to 
Montreal. From the above three ports on the Georgian Bay for many years there 
has been carried large quantities of Canadian grain from Fort William to Montreal 
for export trade and at the same ports in addition from Chicago, Duluth and other 
American ports, large quantities of American grain has been routed. Of the latter 
(American grain) some has been exported and also some distributed by rail through 
the Eastern and North Eastern States. With the closing of Montreal in the winter 
month s grain from the above Georgian Bay ports has been carried to Montreal and 
from thence over the Grand Trunk System to Portland. 

"This plan of carriage is particularly favourable to Canada in respect of the 
Canadian grain from Fort William to Canadian ports, ensuring the carriage by 
water, to Canadian vessels under the coasting laws between Canada and the United 
States, and from this point is highly desirable as fostering the shipping interests of 
Canada. While the winter trade to Portland is not as desirable as if that port was a 
Canadian port, in view of the fact that the railway from Montreal to Portland oelongs 
to Canada it gives additional trade to federal railways which would otherwise be 
diverted (with Montreal closed) to Buffalo and to New York, and other Atlantic 
ports. 

"The advantage of lake transit from ports at the head of the Great Lakes (both 
American and Canadian) to Georgian Bav ports, rather than to Buffalo, is manifest, 
and every advantage should be taken of this to induce grain to follow in this channel 
for the advantage of the carrying of grain and other products by Canadian channels. 

"In addition to the above national railway ports on tlie Georgian Bay, there is 
~ also the important point of shipment, Port McNicoll, from whence the Canadian 
Pacific Railway carry the bulk of the grain through Canada, which they deliver at 
Montreal for export during the summer months, and after the closing of that port 
carry on to St. John, New Brunswick. The hauling of grain has reached large pro 
portions at Port McNicoll, as not only is grain consigned there from Canadian ports 
at the head of Lake Superior, but also American grain from Chicago, Duluth, etc. 
The trade at Port McNicoll in 1921 reached a volume of some 70 million bushels, and 
in addition a very great quantity of flour. 



276 THE SENATE 13 GEO. V 



"The alarming quantity of Canadian products exported via American Atlantic 
ports should ibe diminished to the greates possible extent, and carried by Canadian 
systems of water and rail transport." 

The views of other members of the Committee, who are especially concerned with 
such conditions which have been so detrimental to the Transcontinental Railway 
and the Montreal and Quebec harbours, might be summed up as follows: 

"Navigation can remain open and is safe on the St. Lawrence river as late as 
January every year. 

"Since the first aim of the Federal Government must >be to secure better freight 
return on the Transcontinental Kailway in order to reduce its huge railway deficit, 
a more reasonable and inviting rate should be quoted from Winnipeg and other 
shipping points along the line, so as to have the largest possible quantity of grain 
sent through Quebec until the closing of that port in January, and then on to St. 
John and Halifax. 

"In accordance with the evidence given before the Committee by Mr. C. A. 
Hayes, a rate considerably lower than the present rate could be quoted and the Trans 
continental Railway would still be making money out of it. 

"Since over $25,000,000 have been spent in improving the navigation in the St. 
Lawrence river and making it as safe a? possible at all times from Father Point 
to Quebec and Montreal, the Government should take the means of securing a sub 
stantial reduction in insurance rates from Lloyds and other Marine Insurance Com 
panies, and of putting an end to the extra and prohibitive rates actually enforced." 

CONCLUSION 

After careful consideration of all tht- evidence submitted, your Committee is 
of opinion that there exists a most serious condition of affairs, with regard to the 
diversion of the Western grain trade to New York and other United States seaports, 
for export. There seems to be no doubt that two-thirds, and probably four-fifths 
of that trade takes that route, and that we are paying many millions annually to 
United States railways, lake carriers and elevators, that would be earned by our 
own railways and train men, if it were possible to export this grain at Canadian 
seaports. Since this evidence was taken, and at the present writing Government 
statistics show that the diversion still continues, and that of the bountiful crop of 
1921 no less than 99 million bushels of wheat went from Fort William to Buffalo. 

After all the sacrifices that Canada has made in building three transcontinental 
railways, it is impossible that we should go on allowing our seaports to be deprived 
of their legitimate traffic, to obtain which our people have been and are being so 
heavily taxed. A persistence in this policy must inevitably lead to serious dis 1 - 
satisf action not only in Quebec and in the Maritime Provinces, but also amongst 
the farmers of the Northwest, who will soon realize that these hostile railway tariffs 
are imposing a burden upon them which they are not called upon to bear. 

It may be, as some of our railway witnesses have suggested, that a reduction in 
the rate upon grain to our seaports might lead to reprisals and corresponding reduc 
tions on the part of United States railways which have been handling so large a 
share of this traffic. It cannot !be injurious to our own railways, because it is an 
export traffic which practically they are not getting. 

In any case such reprisal would certainly benefit the Western farmer, and your 
Committee feel that it is their duty to report that they recommend that the petition 
of the Quebec Board of Trade, as stated in the Memorial of that Board to the Railway 
Cnmmiss ; on dated 3rd February, 1931, hereto attached, be granted, and that the 
Government he advised 



A.D. 1922 JUNE 9 277 

(1) To cause rates to be granted upon export grain over the Canadian 
National railway to Quebec, Montreal, Halifax, >St. John and Vancouver, 
such as would develop trade through the above ports. 

(2) As a corollary to the recommendation in paragraph one that neces 
sary elevator accommodataion should be provided by the Dominion at Cana 
dian ports. 

(3) To arrange with the Marine underwriters or others in such a way 
that the marine insurance rates from Canadian seaports be as cheap as from 
United States seaports. 

This Committee recommends that 2,500 copies of this report be printed and 
also 400 copies of the evidence adduced before the said Committee, and that Rule 
100 be suspended in so far as it relates to the said printing.
