Mr. Claxton:

The situation with regard to the employment of ranges where they are

Inquiries of the Ministry using live ammunition and bombs is a difficult one. Near Petawawa there are a number of communities, including particularly Pembroke and Petawawa village, and the people are not excluded from the camp because they form part of one and the same community. On the other hand there are danger signs, and every time an event of this kind occurs it leads us to look again to see if we are taking all possible precautions.

Mr. J. Watson MacNaughl (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Fisheries):

thank the hon. member for Burin-Burgeo for giving notice of his intention to ask this question. Up to a few minutes ago no full report has been received from our investigators. It is therefore impossible for me to add very much to what I stated in the house on Friday last. Arrangements have been made to have an R.C.A.F. plane take pictures of the area. The R.C.M.P. are co-operating in every way with the officials of our department in making a complete investigation. When a full report is received I shall be glad to give it to the hon. gentleman.

LAKE ONTARIO

REQUEST FOR SURVEY OF EROSION OF CANADIAN SHORES


On the orders of the day:


PC

Gordon Graydon

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gordon Graydon (Peel):

May I direct a question to the Minister of Public Works?

Before I ask my question, may I express, on behalf of all hon. members, the great pleasure that we have in his being back with us in an improved state of health.

My question is: Will the minister give consideration to having a survey made by his departmental officials of the acute erosion which is taking place on the Canadian shores of lake Ontario? I think the minister is aware of the difficulties that are being experienced from day to day. Something ought to be done before anything more serious occurs.
