July 9, 1942 (19th Parliament, 3rd Session)

LIB

Clarence Decatur Howe (Minister of Transport; Minister of Munitions and Supply)

Liberal

Mr. HOWE:

1 and 2.
(a) Total route miles operated by bus companies in 1941: Ontario, 7,587; Quebec, 8,725.
(b) Estimated bus miles per year saved by curtailments and abandonments to date July 1, 1942: Ontario, 2,527,402; Quebec, 1,769,962.
The above figures are exclusive of city curtailment because the service in most cases parallels street car lines, and because the problem is met by modification rather than abandonment. *
In order to answer in detail the above question it would be necessary to require complete statistics from 125 bus operating companies in each province, the great majority of these having multiple routes.
