Liberal

Hon. Ron Basford (Minister of State for Urban Affairs):

In accordance with the announcement made by the Minister of State for Urban Affairs on August 4, 1971, Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation has taken foreclosure action againts the owners of Rochdale College. While it has been hoped that the courts would grant an early order for possession, to permit CMHC to obtain financial and operating control, this possession has been refused by the courts and CMHC solicitors have therefore been instructed to seek an early trial date on the main foreclosure action. We are pursuing the foreclosure action with all due diligence.

As CMHC does not have legal possession of the building, consideration cannot be given to other uses at this time.
