Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister) moved for leave to introduce Bill No. 72, to carry into effect the provisions of the convention of 15th September, 1938, providing for emergency regulation of the level of Rainy lake and of the level of other boundary waters in the Rainy lake watershed.
He said: Mr. Speaker, some little time ago the International Joint Commission recommended that an agreement should be entered into between Canada and the United States to regulate the water levels in the Rainy lake area in cases of emergency. The agreement was reached in September of last year. The bill is designed to give effect to the convention then signed. The convention itself is printed as an appendix to the bill.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
