Within the parks; and also what was known as the Big Bend section of the trans-Canada highway in British Columbia. Under an arrangement made some years ago, the federal government undertook to build1 the section of the road between Donald and Revelstoke. That was done by the department. The work has not been done by contract ever since it started. The same procedure was followed in connection with the Banff-Jasper road. Then there is the construction work which is going on continuously within the parks.
We have one representative on this International Boundary Commission, and he has a small staff. This has to do largely with the maintenance of the markers on the boundary and the settlement of questions relating to the international boundary. In some instances, where the boundary line passes through areas which have been forested, the line between the two countries has been cleared for a certain width. In certain places that requires some attention every year. There are other parts where the monuments which are set up at stated intervals to indicate the boundary line have to be restored or renewed. This commission is an international commission in the sense that the United States have a representative on it, and these two representatives are the ones who carry on this work.
