INDUSTRIAL AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
Third report of the standing committee on industrial and international relations-Mr. McIntosh.
PROVISION FOR ESTABLISHMENT IN NOVA SCOTIA AND PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND
Hon. T. A. CRERAR (Minister of Mines) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 102, respecting the establishment of a national park in each of the provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
He said: The purpose of the bill is to establish parks in the provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Under the Parks Act legislation of this kind is necessary. When the estimates were under consideration there was some discussion concerning the proposed national parks. There are practically no details in the bill to explain, beyond the fact that in Nova Scotia the park will be in the northern end of Cape Breton Island, while in Prince Edward Island the exact location has not yet been definitely established. There is a choice among three or four sites, and it is expected a decision will be made shortly.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
