PC

Edmund Davie Fulton

Progressive Conservative

Mr. FULTON:

In the past two years I have asked the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Public Works and the Department of Fisheries, in co-operation with the provincial authorities, to make a survey of the whole Fraser river system to find where projects can best be installed so that we can control the run-off and prevent floods and build up a power system that will also provide irrigation and power for industry. I have been in communication with all these departments, and I had an answer from the Minister of Public Works earlier this year, replying to a letter of mine asking what progress was being made in respect to such a survey. I take it that the minister will have no objection if I read his answer.
