The Board of
Railway Commissioners for Canada.
Order no. G.O. 119
|Saturday, the 31st of
January, A.D. 1914
Re various complaints received by the Board stating that the Canadian Pacific Railway, Canadian Northern, and Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Companies are removing regular station agents from various specified stations west of Fort William and Port Arthur, such complaints further alleging that such removal on inadequate notice works to the detriment of the applicants and the communities wherein they reside.
It is ordered that, whenever a railway company intends to remove a regular station agent, it shall first notify the local municipality or board of trade of its intention to apply to the Board for an order permitting such removal. Such application and notice shall state the grounds on which such removal is sought to be justified, and shall, in each instance, show the gross earnings at the station in question from passenger as well as freight traffic and express business during the previous year.
It is further ordered that no regular station agent shall be removed until such removal be first authorized by the Board.
