PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS

TEMPORARY STOPPAGE OF CLOCKS

LIB

Elie Beauregard (Speaker of the Senate)

Liberal

Mr. Speaker:

Hon. members probably will have noticed that the clocks do not indicate the correct time and it may appear that we are starting our proceedings today ahead of time. I should like to inform the house that of the 160 clocks in the building, 40 are out of order, but it is expected they will be put in working condition during the afternoon.

NEWFOUNDLAND

TERMINAL FACILITIES BETWEEN BELL ISLAND AND MAINLAND

PC

Gordon Francis Higgins

Progressive Conservative

Mr. G. F. Higgins (St. John's East):

Mr. Speaker, today marks the fourth anniversary of the signing of the terms of union between Canada and Newfoundland. In spite of the somewhat shotgun character of the marriage, may I say that the union has been pretty happy. My main purpose in rising at this time is not to comment on that fact but to present a petition from Newfoundland, the first unadulterated petition that has been presented from that province. It comes from the principal constituency in Newfoundland. In accordance with the rules of the house I understand that I cannot say very much at this time about the petition, but it comes from Bell island and asks for the consideration of the house to provide terminal facilities between Bell island and the mainland of Newfoundland.

In view of the recommendation in the report of the Massey commission on the arts and sciences, is it the intention of the government to set up at an early date a Canada council for the encouragement of cultural activities as visualized in that report?
