Have requests been made to the board of transport commissioners for the installation of an adequate signal system at the crossing of Champlain street and the Canadian Pacific Railway line at St. Jean d'Iberville; and, if so (a) by whom, and on what date were such requests made (b) what decision was arrived at with respect thereto?

Answer by: Mr. Martini:

The Board of Transport Commissioners for Canada advise as follows:

1. Please see answer to part 2 of question No. 410 with respect to the installation of automatic protection at Champlain street in the city of St. Jean, P.Q. This application was submitted to the board by the city of St. Jean under date of February 1, 1961 and has been under study in conjunction with possible changes at this crossing, and adjacent crossings, including a change in the railway from a double track main line to a single track main line which, it is considered, will result in less expensive installation of protection.
