Thomas Gerow Murphy (Minister of the Interior; Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MURPHY:

Yes, we have endeavoured in the past four years to extend our field experimental stations, and during the past year we brought a new one into being at Kananaskis in Alberta, in which station woods indigenous to that area can be studied in the field. I think the hon. gentleman has reference more to the service that the forestry department can render in cooperation with the Department of Agriculture in restoring to fertility the drought areas in the west. We have been in consultation with the Department of Agriculture and are at present working in close cooperation with them both from a forestry and from a water power standpoint.
