Robert Weir (Minister of Agriculture)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. WEIR (Melfort):

The original act of 1901) permitted the formation of live stock record associations. The act of 1912 repealed the act of 1900 and enacted the present statute making provision for a national live stock records board. The present bill is the outcome of administrative difficulties over the past twenty years, and the other change in the bill deals more with formative changes than anything else, grouping together in the act matters pertaining to records, associations, and enforcement.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Mr. CAHAN: (Secretary of State of Canada)

Conservative (1867-1942)

1. $49,772,506.11.

2. Railway, $31,904,802.76; Churchill terminals, $11,593,485.47; Port Nelson terminals, $6,274,217.88.

3. Yes, as regards marine insurance rates on ships navigating to and from Churchill.

4. In July, 1928, reports of meteorological observations and ice conditions as found during Hudson strait expedition of 1927, which was organized and conducted by the Department of Marine to obtain accurate information in regard to ice conditions and to study the requirements necessary to ensure safe navigation in Hudson strait, were forwarded through the High Commissioner, London, to the Imperial Shipping Committee, then discussing insurance rates for the route to Churchill. Each succeeding year to date additional information as obtained from hydrographic survey and patrol vessels maintained by the Department of Marine in Hudson strait has been forwarded to the Imperial Shipping Committee, as well as reports on aids to navigation established by the Department of Marine in Hudson strait and Hudson bay, namely, direction finding stations at Nottingham island, Cape Hope's Advance, Resolution island, and Churchill.

On the representations made by the Imperial Shipping Committee to the underwriters outlining the facilities afforded, and in view of the fact that a high-powered icebreaker with salvage equipment is kept by the Department of Marine in Hudson strait during the season of navigation, a reduction in the marine insurance rates, originally proposed, was obtained in 1931.

The Imperial Shipping Committee is continuing its negotiations with the underwriters with a view to still further reductions in the insurance rates. More recently information was furnished regarding the visual aids to navigation which the Department of Marine is preparing to establish in Hudson strait this coming season.
