Mr. Henry:

What steps is the federal government taking to be sure that all possible facts will come before the court in evidence to enable the court to decide whether or not the federal government has power to continue rent control in Canada?

Mr. Speaker:

It seems clear that the questions which the hon. member has asked are ones which should be placed on the order paper.

TRANS-CANADA AIR LINES VANCOUVER HEADQUARTERS TRANSPACIFIC SERVICE ALLOCATION OF PERSONNEL


On the orders of the day:


PC

Howard Charles Green

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Howard C. Green (Vancouver-Quadra):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce or the Minister of Transport. Reports from Vancouver indicate that a proposal is now under consideration by Trans-Canada Air Lines to

transfer a substantial portion of the shop work away from Vancouver and to transfer or lay off a considerable number of employees. Will one of the ministers make a statement on this report?

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

Some time ago there was a plan to organize Vancouver as the terminal for the transpacific service of Trans-Canada Air Lines. Since then it has been decided to grant the franchise for the transpacific service to Canadian Pacific Air Lines. The result has been that Canadian Pacific Air Lines have concentrated their headquarters for both domestic and overseas services at Vancouver. The fact that the overseas service will not be operated by Trans-Canada Air Lines makes some rearrangement necessary in the plans that had been made for Vancouver. To what extent changes will be made, I do not know, but it was described to me as a minor change in the allocation of personnel.

Mr. Cruickshank:

May I ask a supplementary question? Since Abbotsford is the only fog-free airport in British Columbia, will consideration be given to transferring the Trans-Canada Air Lines airport from Vancouver to Abbotsford?

Abbotsford is kept in reserve for emergencies. When any emergency arises, a transfer may be made to that field.

I believe that question also might be put on the order paper. I do not know that there is great urgency about it.

-but the question was related to the question asked by the member for Vancouver-Quadra (Mr. Green), and I felt it might well be answered at this time.
