NATIONAL PARK, QUEBEC PROVINCE


Mr. MACDONALD (Richmond-West Cape Breton): 1. Has the government reached any decision as to the establishment of a national park in the province of Quebec? 2. Has any representation been made to the government regarding this matter: (a) by the province; (b) by others; if so, who are they?


LIB

Mr. STEWART (Edmonton): (Minister of Immigration and Colonization; Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs; Minister of Mines; Minister of the Interior)

Liberal

1. It is the policy of the government to develop a national park in each province, provided the province makes available for this purpose, free of charge to the Dominion and free of encumbrance, a compact area of national parks standard. So far the provincial government of Quebec has not suggested to the department that it take over for administration as a national park any area in Quebec, and no representations in this regard seem to have been made direct to the department by other parties.

2. (a) and (b) answered by No. 1.
