William Melville Martin

Mr. Martin (for Mr. Pearson):

In the past, the mean monthly levels of lake Ontario have ranged from a low of 242-7 feet to a high of 249-3 feet. Plans of regulation to be followed in the operation of the St. Lawrence power project are now under consideration. These plans envisage a reduction in the extreme high levels and an increase in the extreme low levels of lake Ontario, both of which can cause damage to property owners. As such regulation will result in a substantial reduction in the frequency of occurrence of the natural levels at which property can be damaged, the question of compensation does not arise.
