Goddard's Startling Statement. Engineer Cecil Goddard then took the stand again. He made the sur- prising staiement that he roughly es- timated that 50 per cent, of the line run by him between Edmonton and I Fort .Mc.Murray was muskeg, and would have to be corduroyed. In oth- er words, the distance to McMurray un a straight line being '2ss miles, there would be 144 miles of muskeg. He explained that this corduroying is expensive and adds considerably to the total cost of construction.
