Mr. MURPHY:

W:aterton Lakes national park in Canada and Glacier national park in the United States adjoin each other along the international boundary between Alberta and Montana; they have long been 41781-191

recognized by the public in both countries as constituting virtually one park unit and, therefore, in some respects, are international in character. Indeed, some of the principal features of the United States park are more readily accessible from the Canadian than the United States side, notably the upper Water-ton lake which lies partly in the United States and partly in Canada, and the Kintla icefields in Glacier park which are usually visited by way of Canadian trails.

Some months ago the government of the United States approached the government of this country for the purpose of ascertaining the views of this government in regard to giving these two park areas, namely Waterton Lakes national park in Canada and Glacier national park in the United States, one name which would be Waterton Glacier International Peace Park. The Canadian government, being desirous at all times of promoting that peace and goodwill which exist between the two countries, agreed on the understanding that similar legislation would be passed by both governments. A bill known as the Waterton Glacier International Peace Park bill has been passed by the United States and is now law, and the purpose of introducing this bill is that similar action may be taken by Canada.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

I think, by common consent, it will be agreed that the question should not be answered. It is not in the public interest, as that term has been defined in British countries, that questions Nos. 1, 2 and 3 should be answered. Question No. 4 will be answered. I may say, as parliament votes the money and provides in the first instance the uses to which it may be put, it is certainly not in the interest of the public nor in that of the administration of the department that answers should be given to the first three questions.
