Mr. Pearkes:

From the information I have received from the secretary of defence for the United States there would be no justification for suspending work on the Canadian Bomarc sites.

Is there any possible alternate use for the sites other than for Bomarcs?

FORT WILLIAM, ONT. ALLEGED CONTROL BY U.S. AIR FORCE OVER TELEPHONE LINE


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Hubert Badanai

Liberal

Mr. Hubert Badanai (Fort William):

I

should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Defence. From information received from my constituency I am informed that a private conversation between Fort William and the Hudson bay store at Pagwa, Ontario, was interrupted by the United States air force at Pagwa. My question is, has the United States military authority control over communications between Nakina and Pagwa? Has this control over our private telephone conversations been approved by the Canadian government, and if so why were the residents of the area not informed?

Hon. G. R. Pearkes (Minister of National Defence):

There is, between Nakina and Pagwa, a commercial as well as a military line. The military authorities have no control whatever over the commercial line. They do have control over the military line.

May I

direct this question to the Prime Minister. In the light of representations made to the Prime Minister on Friday last by the air industries and transport association concerning the government's policy in the field of non-scheduled commercial air lines, what does the government intend to do to stop the small carriers from going into bankruptcy or out of business, as stated in these representations?

Mr. Lucien Cardin (Richelieu-Vercheres):

Mr. Speaker, would the minister inform this house whether, in the light of representations made to them last October, negotiations between the federal government authorities on the provincial and municipal levels have been started with regard to the construction of the bridge for eastern Montreal?

Joseph Pierre Albert Sévigny (Associate Minister of National Defence)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Pierre Sevigny (Associate Minister of National Defence):

Mr. Speaker, in answer to the question of the hon. member for Richelieu-Vercheres (Mr. Cardin). I must say that, last October I suggested to some groups in the city of Montreal like the chamber of commerce of Montreal, and the board of trade, to draw up a plan for the construction of a bridge in eastern Montreal.

I suggested to them to organize and approach the federal, provincial and municipal government authorities.

I know from hearsay that the chamber of commerce is studying the project, but I do not think that so far any approach has been made in another direction.

Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Laurier):

I

would like to ask the Associate Minister of National Defence a question. Would he be willing to try and convince his colleague the Minister of Transport who does not seem to favour the minister's idea.
