3. Yes. (a) Research (described in the report named below) indicates that moderately sensitive aquatic ecosystems that were studied in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Maine and New Hampshire which received substantially more than 20 kilograms per hectare per year wet sulphate deposition, experienced effects such as increased acidity and damage to fish population. Ecosystems receiving substantially less than 20 kilograms per hectare per year deposition experienced no effects. Therefore, the value of 20 kilograms per hectare per year is considered to be a reasonable first approximation to a target loading.

(b) Canadian justification of the 20 kilogram target is based on field research that has been described in the final report of Work Group 1 on Impact Assessment under the United States-Canada Memorandum of Intent on Transboundary Air Pollution.

Hon. Romeo LeBlanc (Minister of Public Works):

1. (a)

The federal Government entered into a Canada-New Brunswick Subsidiary Agreement under the General Development Agreement on a 80/20 cost sharing basis with the federal contribution not to exceed $8,000,000. Of this amount approximately $825,000 was expended in 1983/84.

(b) Funding for this project was made available under the Special Recovery Capital Projects Program announced in the April 19, 1983 budget. At the time the program was announced, it was anticipated that the Government would be requested to contribute to the revitalization of the downtown core of Moncton. This was confirmed on August 4, 1983 when representatives of the City of Moncton met with the Minister of Public Works Canada and senior officials of the Department of Regional Industrial Expansion, Public Works Canada and the Ministry of State for Economic and Regional Development to present their "Revitalization of Downtown Moncton Plan" and to request financial assistance.

2. The responsibility for the Moncton Core Revitalization Subsidiary Agreement was transferred to Public Works Canada.
