RENTAL CONTRACTS FOR BUILDINGS NOT COMPLETED

PC

1. Since April 8, 1963, how many contracts for the rental of buildings have been let by the

Questions

4. What Is the policy of the N.C.C. in servicing and maintaining expropriated properties which the original owners have vacated?

5. Is service maintenance contracted out to private firms or individuals?

6. How many N.C.C. employees in each of the trades are engaged in service maintenance of expropriated N.C.C. properties?

Answer: 1 and 2. Please see table below.

3. In determining fair values of expropriated properties, the national capital commission secures data with respect to value from technical experts such as real estate appraisers, building contractors, soil experts, engineers with respect to machinery and equipment, and chartered accountants for business disturbance, cost of moving and other such claims.

Upon receipt of the foregoing information, the negotiators of the commission meet with the former owner or his agent to discuss elements of value peculiar to his property. This includes such things as loss of value of drapes, Venetian blinds, broadloom rugs, disconnecting of stoves, dryers, etc., the cost of moving or other costs occasioned by the expropriation.

When agreement is reached as to the amount of the compensation, an option setting forth the terms is prepared by the commission and signed by the former owner. This option is then considered by the land committee of the commission, which after viewing the property, makes recommendations to

the commission. The commission then may approve the option. If the amount exceeds $25,000, treasury board approval is also required.

4. Policy of servicing and maintaining properties which the original owners have vacated.

These fall into four classifications: (a)

Economic properties; (b) Uneconomic properties; (c) Buildings unfit for human habitation because of fire and health hazards; (d) Properties which must be cleared of buildings in order to carry out projects of the commission.

Generally, the buildings on economic properties are serviced and maintained to the same standard as if they had continued in private ownership. However, the standard of maintenance on buildings which do have to be demolished because of the requirements of major national capital commission projects does vary, since this depends on the date when the demolition is likely to occur.

Uneconomic or substandard properties are offered for sale for demolition or occasionally for removal, by public tender.

5. Not entirely; a small amount is done by national capital commission staff.

6. One truck driver and one tractor operator plus part time use of park maintenance crews on weed control.

FISHING RIGHTS OF MEMBERS OF EUROPEAN COMMON MARKET

LIB

Mr. Lambert

Liberal

1. What is the nature of the declaration made by the Minister of Fisheries with respect to the increased activities of European fishermen, as a result of the modernization of harbour and other facilities for fishermen on the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon?

2. Have negotiations been entered into between Canada and the six nations of the common market with respect to fishing rights and/or the activities of fishermen of those nations?

3. Has the government of Canada received protests from any of the governments of the common market nations either on an informal or formal basis?

Answer: 1. The Minister of Fisheries stated in the standing committee on marine and fisheries that we have no specific information about the intentions of the French government with regard to the modernization of harbour and other facilities at St. Pierre and Miquelon islands, but that should there be any interference in Canadian waters, this would be a matter of negotiation between Canada and France.

2. The only two countries of the European common market with whom we are negotiating are France and Italy.

3. Seeing that we are negotiating with these two countries, the question of protest does not arise. We have had no communication with the other countries of the European common market.
