Francis Alvin George Hamilton (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Alvin Hamilton (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources):

Mr. Speaker, the hon. member is aware that the former member for the Marquette constituency was also the Manitoba minister in the Liberal 66968-9-43

government. Under that government, prevailing rates employees for Riding Mountain park were hired through local advisers rather than through the national employment service, the normal practice followed in other parks. During the first year in office the present government followed a similar procedure. However, this fall, in view of the vigorous winter work campaign, my office contacted the members for Marquette, Brandon-Souris and Dauphin, suggesting that every effort should be made to ensure that the most needy cases should be given first consideration in the national park area, irrespective of party affiliations. In this regard we were especially cognizant of the fact that many farmers live on submarginal land and had a complete crop failure in 1958. This also included farm labourers, who during the winter season are unemployed and do not come under the Unemployment Insurance Act.

Last fall the hon. member for Brandon-Souris was in touch with me following a meeting of the winter work committee for western Manitoba, suggesting that the hiring for national park projects should be done through the national employment offices adjacent to the park. Arrangements were made at that time to have the names of all the men seeking winter employment at the park registered in the Brandon national employment service office. Since the members have returned to Ottawa for the present session a meeting has been held with the Minister of Labour and the officials of the national employment service to regularize these procedures.
