RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE IN POLAND

Mr. O'Keefe

Paul Joseph James Martin (Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Liberal

Mr. Martin (Essex East):

In connection with the question asked by the member for St. John's East, I would like to inform the house that I have asked our embassy in Warsaw to check the accuracy of this report of religious intolerance in Poland. I have now been advised by our embassy in Warsaw that the Globe and Mail article was substantially accurate. The problem raised by the Globe and Mail article apparently dates back to a law passed by the Polish parliament in the summer of 1961 forbidding religious education in schools. This law was interpreted by the Polish authorities as applying to summer camps as well, and priests have consequently been barred from conducting services within them.

As the house is aware, the Canadian government is against any form of religious intolerance. However, it is felt that any action taken by the government in this regard might have an effect contrary to that intended and could be interpreted as an intrusion in the internal affairs of another country. Considering these possible repercussions, the government does not propose to take action at the present time, beyond the informal inquiries we have made.

Mr. Hays:

1. The names of firms which have had major contracts for the construction of the South Saskatchewan river dam are: Joint venture:-Peter Kiewit Sons Company of Canada, Ltd.; A1 Johnson Construction Co. of Canada, Limited; Pool Construction Company, Limited; McNamara Construction Western Limited; Piggott Construction Limited; Bedford Construction Company Limited.

Joint venture:-Emil Anderson Construction Co. Ltd.; Square M Construction Limited; Coleman Collieries Limited.

2. The government has received two representations concerning the financial terms of these contracts, (1) Bedford Construction Company Limited asked to be relieved of

their contract obligations before the contract work was completed. An agreement was entered into whereby Canada has undertaken to have the work completed by another contractor, and Bedford Construction Company Limited has undertaken to reimburse Canada for any additional costs to Canada incurred by this arrangement, (2) The joint venture of Kiewit-Johnson-Poole has submitted a document requesting consideration of additional compensation for work carried out under two of their contracts in connection with the construction of the tunnels. This submission is now under study by P.F.R.A.

3. The contract documents used in connection with the construction of the South Saskatchewan river dam are standard government of Canada forms. The standard form of contract used in all departments was changed on March 31, 1963, and consequently both forms are in use in contracts currently in force on this project. The new contract form introduced on March 31, 1963, has provision for price negotiation in the event of unforeseen difficulties in construction.
