Robert Henry Winters (Minister of Resources and Development)

Liberal

Mr. Winters:

Before we rise I wish to say, in reply to the hon. member, that Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation is located some distance from the city at a point where there are, among other things, cheaper land values. And I am sure the Canadian taxpayer, in the over-all picture, has not suffered because Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation has the type of building it has.

It has been constructed far from the centre of population in the city. I should think that must be a hardship for those who have to go all that distance for their recreation.
