Mr. P. V. Noble (Grey-Simcoe):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Agriculture. In view of the fact that approximately 1,400 cattle died in transit on the railways from the western provinces to Ontario last fall, has the minister investigated the matter and has he anything to offer by way of a solution to what the cattle breeders describe as a national disgrace?

Hon. H. A. Olson (Minister of Agriculture):

Mr. Speaker, we looked into this some weeks ago, in fact, some months ago. It is true that last winter was an unusually difficult winter with regard to the incidence of certain diseases and climatic conditions. We hope we can find a basis on which the shippers, the transportation companies and, indeed, the government regulations can be reconciled to improve the situation in the coming year.

Mr. Olson:

Mr. Speaker, we are now working on an urgent basis in that regard, but no one can guarantee that we will not have severe weather next winter or that there will not be another outbreak of some of the diseases.

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Finance.

In view of the statements of the Quebec Premier that the Canadian government has too much spending power, can the minister indicate to the House whether he has recently received representations to that effect from the Quebec Minister of Finance?

Hon. Robert L. Stanfield (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. Do the minister and the government still favour the concept of pipelines and highways through the north using one corridor and that authorizations relating to pipelines will be determined by the National Energy Board?

Mr. Stanfield:

In view of the fact the government has decided to proceed post-haste with the construction of a highway through the north, I wish to ask the minister whether the National Energy Board and, in fact, the government, have approved the route as suitable for a pipeline corridor?

Mr. Chretien:

Mr. Speaker, with regard to the construction of highways, there is no need to ask the advice of the National Energy Board. The construction of highways in the north is the responsibility of my department, just as the choice of the corridor will be.

As for granting the permit for building the pipeline, the choice of the company or the group that will perform the work will be made by the National Energy Board.

With regard to the northern territories, they are the responsibility of my department.

Mr. Jack Cullen (Sarnia-Lambton):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Transport, but in his absence I will direct it to his parliamentary secretary. What action is being taken by the Department of Transport to assist the United States Coastguard in limiting pollution of the St. Clair River and shoreline as a result of a collision between two ships early this morning?

Mr. Gerard Duquet (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Transport):

Mr. Speaker, officials of my department are already on the scene of that unfortunate accident to look into the various aspects of the matter. Having occurred in American waters, the accident as such will require an inquiry; there is also the matter of pollution. Those two aspects are now being studied by the people who are on the spot.
