Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Mr. CRERAR:

My recollection is that the arrangement was made by the late government to build the west leg. The original arrangement was made when my right hon. leader was Prime Minister previously, to build the east leg, and the provincial government is bearing no part of the cost of construction. Under the agreement, when the road is constructed it will be taken over by the provincial government, and of course thereafter the cost of maintenance will be their responsibility.
