have a question for the Minister of Finance. Could the Minister inform the House when the Government intends to take action concerning pay revisions for group "B" employees in order to restore civil service morale, which according to a statement by the President of the Treasury Staff Association of Canada at a conference in Toronto has never been at a lower ebb?

TRANS-CANADA HIGHWAY NEW BRUNSWICK-PROPOSED CHANGE IN ROUTE

PC

Hugh John Flemming

Hon. H. J. Flemming (Vicloria-Carlelon):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct a question to

May 27. 1965

the Minister of Public Works. Has the Minister received a telegram from the Bath Chamber of Commerce stating that the general public interest renders it imperative that he send a top level official of his Department to investigate the suggested change in routing of the trans-Canada highway from Florence-ville to Perth, New Brunswick, to the west side of the St. John River due to the fact that it involves several million dollars excess expenditure over the east side route, and because the ordinary traffic and convenience regarding the heavily populated area on the east side, as well as through traffic to eastern counties of New Brunswick, will suffer as a consequence?

Mr. Speaker:

Order, please. While this is undoubtedly a very interesting and informative question, it seems to me it should be placed on the order paper.

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Public Works, Mr. Speaker. Can the Minister advise this House whether every individual or company that has dumped thousands of tons of fill into Lake Ontario between the Humber River and Etobicoke Creek in the past few years received permission in advance, as required by the Navigable Waters Protection Act?

GREAT LAKES-REQUEST FOR IMPROVEMENT OF SERVICE

Wallace Bickford (Wally) Nesbitt

Progressive Conservative

Mr. W. B. Nesbitt (Oxford):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport in relation to the Minister's very welcome announcement today concerning the search and rescue organization for the Atlantic coast. Can the Minister tell the House how

Inquiries of the Ministry soon a similar arrangement can be made in respect of the Great Lakes, now that the summer season is here and boating accidents are daily on the increase? I realize that he may have alluded to this in his announcement. Can the Minister also tell the House what co-ordinating arrangements presently exist in this regard in the Great Lakes area?

Hon. J. W. Pickersgill (Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, in reply to the last part of the question, if the hon. gentleman refers to co-ordination between Canada and the United States I do not think I can give an offhand answer, but if he refers simply to Canadian co-ordination let me state that it is exactly the same in respect of the Great Lakes and Pacific coast as in respect of the Atlantic coast. I did say when I made the statement that we are making a survey of the needs of the Great Lakes and Pacific coast areas. I hope that survey can be completed as quickly as possible so it will be possible to meet the needs as quickly as possible.

Mr. Nesbitt:

I have a supplementary question. Can I take it from the Minister's answer that the Minister of National Defence is responsible for co-ordinating search and rescue operations on the Great Lakes, and I have in mind municipal and voluntary organizations and the like.
