CHAMPLAIN BRIDGE, MONTREAL SUGGESTED ABOLITION OF TOLLS


On the orders of the day:


?

Bryce Stuart Mackasey

Mr. Bryce S. Mackasey (Verdun):

I wish to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. Will the government consider the abolition of tolls on the Champlain bridge, should either Point St. Charles or LaSalle be chosen as the site of the world's fair and if recommended by the newly appointed commissioner general?

Mr. Speaker:

Order. The matter of the location of the fair being hypothetical at the moment, I think the question becomes even more hypothetical.

OLD AGE PENSIONS

REQUEST FOR INCREASE DURING PRESENT SESSION


On the orders of the day:


?

Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the N.D.P.)

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, may I direct a question to the Prime Minister. In view of the report that the premier of Quebec has indicated his non-concurrence in the proposed amendment of the British North America Act with regard to old age pensions, will the government at this session of parliament propose some other way of increasing old age pensions?

Mr. Speaker, part of that question is policy and part of it is impolitic.

I have a supplementary question. May I ask the Prime Minister whether he will bring down and have placed on Hansard the further correspondence that appears to have taken place on this question during the Christmas recess.

On the orders of the day:

Gérard Perron

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. Does the minister think it normal that the passes issued by the railways last December 12 to the members of the Quebec legislature be unilingual and in English only?
