Mr. McKinnon:

Mr. Speaker, the purpose of this Bill is to ensure that a high quality of material, design and colour will be used in the manufacture of the Canadian flag. The objective is to reduce fading and other signs of wear which render our flags unsightly after a short period of use.

Lloyd Axworthy (Minister of Transport)

Hon. Lloyd Axworthy (Minister of Transport):

The Management of Canadian National Railways advises as follows:

1. Mr. R. A. Bandeen, as President of Canadian National Railway Company, did not attend the hearing conducted by the Canadian Transport Commission relating to the acquisition by Canadian Pacific Limited of an interest in the Dart shipping group on the basis that both his appearance at the public hearing and the information requested of him, with respect to the CN/CAST relationship, was totally irrelevant to the terms of reference of a public hearing which involved the acquisition of an interest in a totally different shipping line, namely Dart, by a totally different railway company, namely Canadian Pacific Limited.

In addition, the subpoena contemplated that Mr. Bandeen would bring certain documents with him relating to the earnings resulting from CN's holdings in the CAST organization. It was Canadian National's position that, in addition to that information being irrelevant for the purpose of the public hearing, it was also confidential and privileged in nature since (1) CN's holdings/investments are in connection with private companies which do not disclose their financial statements and in which Canadian National holds only a minority shareholding interest and (2) that disclosure could only be detrimental and cause serious financial harm to these companies and their shareholders.

2. Mr. Bandeen was not paid fees or other remuneration by the CAST shipping group with respect to services provided as director, officer or otherwise.

Hon. Lloyd Axworthy (Minister of Transport):

The Management of Canadian National Railways advises as follows:

1. All costs associated with placing television commercials on the CTV program "Canada AM" were paid by CN. The total for the two years 1982 and 1983 was $444,470.

The appearance of CN television commercials on "Canada AM" is part of a larger campaign that CN has had underway since 1968. The costs for any particular TV program are not readily available for the years prior to 1982 because earlier records were not maintained in such manner. However, the above sum represents a typical level of exposure that CN has purchased in recent years.

2. (a) Average cost per programme:

1982 $651

1983 $773

April 17, 1984

Order Paper Questions

(b) All English language commercials produced for our advertising campaign each year appear in rotation on "Canada AM". The proportion of the total production cost relative to their exposure on "Canada AM" is $10,500 for each of the years 1982 and 1983. This is an average because expenditure is based on commercials having a two-year span of usefulness.

(c) SDA and Bob Harwood Productions.

Mr. Taylor:

Mr. Speaker, could I ask the Parliamentary Secretary when we might expect an answer to Question No. 759? I realize that it was only put on the Order Paper on March 26 but I would like to have the answer in time to deal with an adjournment debate shortly. If the Hon. Minister could give an answer quickly, we would certainly appreciate it.
