Mr. Lucien Cardin (Richelieu-Vercheres):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources. Is the minister aware that the birthplace of Sir Wilfrid Laurier at St. Lin, Quebec, which is an historic monument, was closed yesterday? Does the minister not
