Arthur Smith

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Smith (Calgary South):

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of the bill is described in its preamble. There is little I can add except to say that a number of service organizations in the country have requested that such a bill be introduced to give us an opportunity to set aside a week in which to reflect upon the positive and good qualities of the vast majority of our young citizens and simultaneously, through a program of activities, to permit the adult population to become more fully aware of their qualities.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Walter Gilbert Dinsdale (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dinsdale:

I will answer parts 1, 2, and 3 together, Mr. Speaker.

At the present time, little or no skiing takes place in the national park located in Nova Scotia. However, within the past year I have received representations from the hon. member for Cape Breton North and Victoria (Mr. Muir), about the possibility of developing some organized skiing facilities in the Cape Breton Highlands national park. Similar representations have been received from the hon. member for Saint John-Albert (Mr. Bell) with respect to Fundy national park in New Brunswick. I have also held discussions with 26207-1-79

interested individuals in the areas concerned and with representatives of the local chambers of commerce.

Following these representations I made arrangements for an expert, Mr. Franz Baier, to understake a technical survey of the skiing development potential of these national parks. Mr. Baier has completed his assessment and has submitted a report, which is now being studied by the officers of my department.

Mr. Balcer:

As the answer to this question contains a list of over 30 shipyards, perhaps the house will agree to it being printed in Hansard.

Léon Balcer (Minister of Transport)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Balcer:

The contract with the company providing limousine service to the Montreal international airport does not specify the exact route which must be followed between the city and the airport. In fact the route, including pick-up and disembarking points, is determined by the operator in consultation with the air lines in accordance with air line

requirements taking account, it is understood, of both the fastest method of providing through service from downtown to the airport and, at the same time, the most likely requirements for pick-up and disembarking points en route.
