The Canadian Transport Commission refused to consid- er the applications without studying the impact the aban- donment would have on the public, especially the farmers. In 19G7, the commission froze applications on the abandonment of branch lines of all but miles in the Prair- ies. The commission said it would not consider any appli- cations until 1975.
