1. Have any provincial governments signed agreements since June 27, 1956, pursuant to the amended Trans-Canada Highway Act which received royal assent on June 7, 1956?
2. It so, which provincial governments have so signed?
3. Which provincial governments have signed agreements to date under the amended statute?
Answer by: Mr. Bourgei, Parliamentary
Assistant, for the Minister of Public Works:
1. Yes.
2. Ontario.
3. Agreements have been concluded with the provincial governments of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Nova Scotia has returned a signed agreement but with a revision in schedule "A", the detailed designation of the route of the trans-Canada highway in the province. British Columbia has submitted only a revised schedule "A". Before agreements can be signed with these provinces, further clarification of the schedules "A" is required.
