Hon. George H. Hees (Minister of Transport):
Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for Essex East showed a great interest in the shipping arrangements we have been able to work out on the west coast following the strike of Northland Navigation Company. As I advised him yesterday, the hon. member for Comox-Alberni and the hon. member for Skeena both showed great interest in this matter from the very beginning and discussed it
6024 HOUSE OF
Inquiries of the Ministry thoroughly with me. I kept them fully advised at all times, and thoroughly informed with regard to this matter. However, since the hon. member for Essex East shows the great interest he has, I am going to give him the information he asked for, Mr. Speaker.
