Hon. J. R. Nicholson (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration):

1 and 2. Yes, but only in the following circumstances:

(a) Where the municipal authority provides evidence that a piped sewer will be available within a period of from 2-3 years and a bylaw is in effect requiring existing housing to

connect to it within a specified time, (b) Where construction is proposed in a rural area, (c) In certain designated portions of subdivisions that were accepted prior to January 1961.

3. Yes, subject to 1 and 2 above and the following:

Legislation for the approval of subdivision draft plans varies between Provinces. In Ontario, final approval is given by the Minister of Municipal Affairs, after which registration may be effected and NHA loans may be approved.

In Quebec, the draft plan may be accepted by the town or municipality but must be sent to the Minister of Lands and Forests for approval and registration, after which time NHA loans may be approved.

Acceptance of a draft plan by a town or municipality does not alone constitute acceptability for NHA lending.

Questions

5. The exporters under these credits are located in British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec. Because of the small amounts disbursed in 1964 against credits guaranteed in that year, it is not possible to say what provinces benefited through receiving export credits contracts. However, past experience under credits granted in previous years has shown that there have been over 1,000 sub-suppliers located in almost every province in Canada.

POLITICAL DISCRIMINATION ON TRANS-CANADA HIGHWAY PROJECTS, NOVA SCOTIA

?

Mr. Maiheson

1. Has the Minister of Public Works any new information about the omission from Trans-Canada Highway contracts made by Nova Scotia of the clause required by the Agreement between Canada and Nova Scotia prohibiting political discrimination in employment on highway construction?

2. Has the Minister obtained a verbatim report of the hearing of the Public Accounts Committee of the Legislative Assembly of Nova Scotia and did the report contain testimony that "kickbacks" were required for employment on certain Trans-Canada Highway projects in Nova Scotia?

3. Has the Minister of Public Works in his possession any materials, in the form of affidavits or otherwise, alleging that political discrimination was practised or is being practised in the construction of the Trans-Canada Highway in Nova Scotia?

4. What sections of the Trans-Canada Highway are scheduled for construction in Nova Scotia in 1965-66?

5. Under the Trans-Canada Highway Act what responsibility has the Minister of Public Works to stop political discrimination?

Hon. Lucien Cardin (Minister of Public

Works): 1. The Minister of Highways of Nova Scotia has advised the Minister of Public Works that he will ensure that the anti-discriminatory clause required by the trans-Canada highway agreement is included in future provincial highway contracts.

2. The Minister of Public Works has, in his possession, a copy of the verbatim report of the hearings of the Public Accounts Committee of the Legislative Assembly of Nova Scotia. The report does contain testimony with reference to "kickbacks" and concludes, from the evidence presented, that there was no wrongdoing which could be related to kickbacks.

3. Yes.

4. As the schedule of construction is a provincial responsibility, the Department is not yet in possession of the program of Nova Scotia for 1965-66.

5. Under the Trans-Canada Highway Act, the Minister of Public Works has no responsibility to stop political discrimination. However, under the Agreement pursuant to the Act and signed with the Province of Nova Scotia, the Minister of Public Works may refuse to make payments to the Province upon proof of discrimination by reason of race, religion or political affiliation.
