On another point in connection with penitentiaries in the Kingston area, I should like to take this opportunity of congratulating the minister and his departmental officials on the progress that is being made in the construction of the Joyceville penitentiary. There are two points about which I should like to ask the minister. One is this. I should like to see the minister's department work, as they have in the past, in co-operation with the township of Pittsburgh for a combined water system to service both this penitentiary area and the village of Joyceville, having in mind that in the development of the village of Joyceville they could develop guards' residences on an individual basis, as they have residences available both at Collins Bay and at Kingston penitentiary close by.
I realize that the Department of Justice at the present time has entered into a temporary arrangement for a private water system, but I wonder if in the future they would bear in mind in their plans that they might be able to co-operate in some way with the township of Pittsburgh in order that water could be taken up to the village of Joyceville close by the penitentiary. The officers could then live within the limit of five miles while working at the penitentiary, and it would be very advantageous not only to the penitentiary branch but to the home life of guards, and would also tend to put the development in that area on a stable basis.
Another question I would like to ask the minister is with respect to the fact that the old penitentiary farm at Kingston penitentiary will eventually be disposed, of being replaced by both the Collins Bay farm and the Joyceville penitentiary farm. In view of the fact that the city of Kingston must plan future services for development in that area I wonder if the minister could give us some idea as to when that farm may be disposed of; that is to say the old Kingston penitentiary farm bordered by highway No. 33, Palace road and Johnston road?
