Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Mines and Resources)

Liberal

Mr. CRERAR:

No; we did not undertake the obligation to build the portion of the road from the west gate of the park to Golden. The original arrangement covered from Donald to the crossing of the Canoe river. Later, that was extended to cover the portion between Golden and Donald. Then, during the administration of the present right hon. leader of the opposition the arrangement with British Columbia was extended to cover the portion of the road from the crossing at Canoe river down to Revelstoke, and the expense of that construction is being wholly borne by the federal government.
