Francis Alvin George Hamilton (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources)

Progressive Conservative

Hon. Alvin Hamilton (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources):

Mr. Speaker, the projects that I announced yesterday are not work camps; they are simply moving forward in the Department of Northern Affairs and National Resources those projects that we ordinarily do in the national parks, with one exception, the Mackenzie highway, which I described separately. Therefore, it is a question of taking ordinary work and moving it forward. As the hon. member knows, we have not too many national parks in the central provinces.
