SCOPE OF INQUIRY BY ROYAL COMMISSION ON COASTING TRADE


On the orders of the day:


PC

Howard Charles Green

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Howard C. Green (Vancouver-Quadra):

Mr. Speaker, earlier in the week the Minister of Transport tabled an order in council appointing a royal commission to inquire into coasting trade of Canada. There has been some doubt as to whether or not that commission would have authority to inquire into the shipping between the two coasts-that is, from the west coast to the St. Lawrence, even though ships called at American ports en route. Would the minister clarify the position in that regard?

Hon. George C. Marler (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, in reply to my hon. friend I should like to say that I think the terms of reference to the royal commission are broad, and I may say it was intended that they should be broad. As he has noted, no doubt, the commissioners are to inquire into and report upon all questions arising out of the transportation by water or by land and water of goods and passengers from one place in Canada to another place in Canada. The question of the transport of goods from the west coast to the east coast through the Panama canal and vice versa was considered, 50433-109

and it was intended that this subject should form part of the matters to be inquired into.

Mr. Green:

May I ask a supplementary question? Does that apply even though ships called at American ports or the ports of some other nationality en route?

Mr. Marler:

I think if my hon. friend will examine the order closely he will find that its terms are very broad, and that the expression used would not exclude what he has in mind.

Hon. Milton F. Gregg (Minister of Labour):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to correct a tentative reply I made yesterday to a question asked by the hon. member for Hamilton West (Mrs. Fairclough). This past year there have been meetings and activities of committees responsible to the council she mentioned, but the last meeting of the full council itself was held on November 5, 1953.
