Lionel Chevrier (Minister of Transport)

Liberal

Mr. Chevrier:

I would like to answer this question orally, if I may. I did receive a group of some eighty students of the University of Ottawa some weeks ago as my guests here in the House of Commons. While I did not lecture to them, I spoke of the manner in which parliament operated, and during the course of the talks someone suggested that I explain on a map the main features of the St. Lawrence seaway. I decided to do so. As I was talking, a picture was taken of the students and of myself, and the picture was sent out to six university student publications, six teacher publications and twelve newspapers, as part of the educational program on the St. Lawrence seaway.

I should tell the house that the national film board made a charge against the Department of Transport of sixty cents for each copy of the print, making a total of $14.40.
