PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND

COMMUNICATIONS WITH MAINLAND


On the orders of the day:


NAT

Gordon Graydon (Leader of the Official Opposition)

National Government

Mr. GORDON GRAYDON (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I want to call

attention to a major emergency with respect to the tie-up in water transportation between Prince Edward Island and the mainland, and to seek information from the Minister of Transport in connection therewith. I have already given the minister a copy of the question to enable him to answer me to-day if possible.

I am informed that hundreds of cars of freight, mainly farm products, are awaiting transfer out of Prince Edward Island, and that a great many cars are awaiting transfer into Prince Edward Island. Some of the cars awaiting transfer out of the island are said to be loaded with a special early variety of seed potatoes, and if they are not moved it will mean a loss of approximately $500 per car. Added to this I am told that the seed is needed very

badly at once in other parts of Canada. During this season the Prince Edward Island ferry service has suffered serious and continuous interruptions of service, to the point that at least one prominent public man in the province has declared that hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of dollars, were due that province by reason of transportation tie-ups.
