I do not know whether my hon. friend is familiar with Fort St. John. Carpenters and contractors in that area are not too plentiful. These were prefabricated
Supply-Trade and Commerce houses, as I recall them, purchased in the Calgary area, I believe, and shipped in over the highway and erected by Poole Construction Company at Fort St. John. Everything had to be moved in over the highway. The transportation costs were a very big factor. My hon. friend may be shocked at the disparity in price between the cost of erecting houses in Calgary and erecting the same houses in Fort St. John, but I am not because it is all a matter of transportation.
