CHAUDIERE RIVER, QUE. REPORTS OF EXPERTS

IND

Mr. Poulin

Independent

1. Have reports of experts been laid before any department of the federal government since 1917, regarding the overflowing of the Chaudiere river, in the province of Quebec?

2. If so, (a) to what department; (b) by whom were they signed; (c) on what dates were they presented?

Answer by: Mr. Hodgson, Parliamentary

Assistant, for the Minister of Public Works:

1 and 2.

The Chaudiere river has been overflowing its banks and causing damages to varying extents practically every year since 1917. Departmental records indicate officials of the department were asked from time to time to report on the extent of the flood damages, to comment on the causes of this flooding and to suggest remedies. However, no comprehensive report on the whole problem has ever been presented to the department by other departments, either federal or provincial, or by any outside firm.

This matter has been studied extensively by the Quebec streams commission which has jurisdiction over such matters in the province of Quebec.
