PUBLIC WORKS

NORTHWESTERN QUEBEC

PC

David James Walker (Minister of Public Works; Minister responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation; Minister responsible for National Capital Commission)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. D. J. Walker (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, I think the house will be interested to know that the investigation which was commenced several weeks ago into possible criminal activities in certain public works projects in northwestern Quebec has now advanced to the point that it appears that criminal charges should be laid.

Accordingly my colleague the Minister of Justice is appointing counsel to assess the evidence now available, to advise as to the course of further criminal investigations, and to draft the charges that should be laid. The house can be assured that the completion of this aspect of this investigation and the laying of charges against all those who may be involved in a criminal way will be pressed with the greatest possible speed.
