George Harris Hees (Minister of Transport)

Hon. George H. Hees (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to read to the house a telegram which I received this morning and in which I think all members will be interested. It is from Mr. N. R. Crump, president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and was sent from Montreal this morning to me as Minister of Transport. The telegram reads as follows:

Am glad to Inform you that after careful study It has been decided to operate daily service, Van-couver-Victoria and return commencing February 25 when present service discontinued until May 15 when summer triangle service will be resumed. Expect substantial loss from this operation but attempt will be made keep to minimum by providing austerity service. It will, however, maintain the connection desired.

As a member representing British Columbia and particularly the city of Vancouver, I want to say how much we welcome the announcement just made by the Minister of Transport. We sincerely hope that the losses will not be too great, and we are most pleased that this most vital service between Vancouver and Victoria is going to be maintained.

STARRED QUESTIONS

MALTON AIRPORT PROPERTY EXPROPRIATION

CCF

Mr. Fisher

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

1. Did the crown engage an independent evaluator in order to appraise any properties being expropriated by the crown in connection with the extension of Malton airport in the past three years?

66968-9-72J

2. If so, when and by what official were the services engaged; what was the evaluator's name; when did he make his report; what were the properties, their values, and their owners?

3. Have the evaluator's recommendations been received and acted upon? If so, in what manner?

4. Has the evaluator been paid? If so, how much?

He said: Mr. Speaker, the hon. minister has only a partial answer available because the matter is involved in a question before the courts, so I would ask leave to withdraw the question. I hope this will not prejudice my placing it on the order paper again at another time.
