Hon. Leon Balcer (Minister of Transport):
Mr. Speaker, following the representations of my hon. friend from Sherbrooke and of the mayor of that city, I got in touch with Trans-Canada Air Lines authorities and asked them to conduct, as quickly as possible, a full inquiry as to the economic feasibility of an air service in Sherbrooke. I also asked officials of the air transport board to conduct a full economic inquiry into this project within the shortest possible time. I should receive the results of these two inquiries any day now.
