PELEE ISLAND FERRY SERVICE

LIB

Mr. Pickersgill

Liberal

1. Does the government or the maritime commission subsidize a ferry service to Pelee island in lake Erie?

2. Is such ferry service not wholly within the bounds of one province?

3. Does the government subsidize any other ferry or shipping services wholly within a province, and if so, what are they?

4. Does the government subsidize the ferry service between Portugal Cove and Bell island, Newfoundland?

5. If not, what reason is there for a federal subsidy to a ferry in Ontario which does not apply equally to Newfoundland?

Mr. MacDonald, Parliamentary Assistant, for the Minister of Transport: Mr. Speaker, the answer to part one of this question is yes.

The answer to part two is that this service is extended during the summer months to Sandusky, Ohio.

The answer to part three is yes, such services being as follows: Vancouver and northern ports of British Columbia and Queen Charlotte islands; Baddeck and Iona, Nova Scotia; Grand Manan and the mainland, New Brunswick; Halifax, Canso and Guysboro, Nova Scotia; Halifax, Torbay, lie Madame and ports on west coast of Cape Breton island, Nova Scotia; Ile-aux-Coudres and Les Eboulements, Quebec; Ile-aux-Grues and Montmagny, Quebec; Mulgrave and Canso, Nova Scotia; Mulgrave, Queensport and lie Madame, Nova Scotia; Murray Bay and north shore of the St. Lawrence river, Quebec; Owen Sound and ports on Manitoulin island and Georgian bay, Ontario; Pictou, Mulgrave

and Cheticamp, Nova Scotia; Quebec, Natash-quan and Harrington, Quebec; Quebec or Montreal, Gaspe and Magdalen islands, Quebec; Rimouski, Matane and points on the north shore of the St. Lawrence river, Quebec; Riviere-du-Loup and St. Simeon and/or Ta-doussac, Quebec; Sydney and Bay St. Lawrence, Nova Scotia; Newfoundland coastal steamship services.

The answer to part four is no, although this matter has been considered from time to time, and I might say that the hon. member for St. John's East has several times brought the matter to the attention of the department.
