Mr. GARDINER:

Will the minister explain the difference between that item and the one we discussed a few minutes ago. Here is a post office and building which costs $15,000. The income is about $8,000 or $9,000 per annum. The building proposed to be erected at Stouffeville is going to cost $20,000.

Mr. COPP:

We have the land already

purchased for the building so that no part of the money will be used for paying for the land.

Mr. SPEAKMAN:

I know that western

bronchos are deserving of a good stable, but few people can afford a $50,000 building.

Mr. COPP:

This item is transmitted to us from the Department of National Defence, and it is to replace the stables that were burned. The stables at Fort Osborne were originally built as cattle sheds in connection with the permanent agricultural college at Tuxedo. The design is most unsatisfactory from the point of view of stable management; it does not lend itself in any way to the proper training of either the permament or nonpermanent units in the duties of stable management, and the buildings are so old and dilapidated that funds would be wasted should an'attempt be made to put these buildings in first class condition. The amount of $50,000, now asked, is for the construction of one unit of new stables, the total cost of which would ultimately be approximately $250,000.

It is cheaper to carry our own insurance than to pay insurance rates on public buildings.
