October 22, 1945

1. Have any complaints been received by the Department of Munitions and Supply regarding the pollution of the waters of the St. Clair river, resulting from the operations of the Polymer Corporation Limited and/or its subsidiaries or plants?

2. If so, what is being done to remove and abate this nuisance?

Mr. MelLRAITH:

1. Yes.

2. The complaint is one that involves most industrial plants in that vicinity on both sides of the St. Clair river where there has been substantial industrial development in recent years and a corresponding growth in the cities and towns located on the river bank.

The Polymer Corporation before operations were started, and periodically since, have fully cooperated with the Department of Health and were given to understand that their operations were not objectionable to the health of the community. The Polymer Corporation, however, will cooperate in any joint programme arrived at correcting the conditions complained of, providing it carries the judgment of the health authorities.

Mr. MURPHY:

I have heard about the dodo bird before. Many of these people, if they could harbour their boats, would erect summer homes of no mean proportion, and of this I have been assured. We should have a dominion tourist commission or the tourist

Standing Committees

industry under a senior minister of the crown to give the necessary support and cooperation the industry warrants.

In closing, Mr. Speaker, I should like to say first, that I should like to learn the French language. I like your pleasant accent and, if I could, I would go down among your compatriots and teach them to sing, "I am beginning to see the light."

I earnestly hope that when the dominion-provincial conference again convenes the tourist industry will be a subject of major consideration, that the dominion and the provinces will correlate their activities so that we may take advantage of all that we have so much of an abundance to offer, and I can assure my hon. friends to the right of you, Mr. Speaker, that if the present government does the best it can possibly do, the Progressive Conservative government will finish the job after the next general election.

On motion of Mr. Gibson (Comox-AIberni) the debate was adjourned.

Mr. MURPHY:

The country now finds itself not only without proper homes for our returning veterans who were promised so much, but also with a serious shortage of building materials to construct these homes which are so sorely needed. *

Between Sarnia and Grand Bend, a shore line of some sixty miles, there is not a harbour for the protection of commercial fishermen. In the event of a storm, some may head for Sarnia; others have to beach their boats. Harbours are their only protection, and may I say in this connection that the two creeks or rivers I referred to previously as not having proper outlets, could be made into ideal natural harbours if proper and not necessarily expensive breakwaters were constructed. These harbours would also bring in many United States boats and sailing craft and be a tremendous factor in promoting our tourist industry.
