John Alfred Irvine

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Irvine:

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this bill is to call upon members of the medical profession to report to the attorneys general of their respective provinces within a week any bodily injuries to a child which may, in their opinion, have been caused by maltreatment. This move is prompted by the many cases which have been reported recently in newspapers. I believe this is a worthy amendment, and I do not believe any further dilation upon it at this time is necessary.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Julia Verlyn (Judy) LaMarsh (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Hon. Judy V. LaMarsh (Secretary of State):

I am informed by the Departments of Post Office and Transport as follows:

Insofar as the Post Office Department is concerned:

1. (a) Air Canada is the only carrier providing a complete domestic main line service on a transcontinental basis (b) Numerous regional air carriers convey mail on routes licensed by the Air Transport Board. In some

July 6, 1966 COMMONS

instances the licensed air carriers have a virtual monopoly in the region. The Post Office Department negotiates tor the most realistic rates for mail conveyance. Generally these rates are related to the charges established by the carriers for other commodities and for passengers, but take into account the priority requirements of mail traffic. Under these circumstances, it is not possible to ascertain what might be interpreted as an indirect subsidy. The Post Office Department pays no direct subsidies.

2. Not applicable.

In so far as the Department of Transport is concerned:

1 and 2. The federal government has provided direct subsidies to air carriers on an interim basis on a few occasions. At present, the payment of a direct subsidy has been authorized for one carrier, TransAir. This subsidy has been authorized to reimburse TransAir for losses sustained in continuing to operate its class I scheduled service to points in the prairies, which it had applied to suspend from April 16, 1966. The subsidy will be provided on a temporary basis for such time as is required for the Air Transport Board to hold a public hearing and determine the future operation of these services.
