1. Has the government, since peace was signed, ever considered the utilization of Valcartier camp grounds? If so, what was the result of such consideration?

2. Is it a fact that this land, formerly under cultivation, is now a complete loss to agriculture as well as to the municipality of Ste. Catherine, on the outskirts of the city of Quebec?

3. Is it true that the waterworks system on this property will soon be worthless?

4. Is it a fact that the whole property, situated as it is, only a few minutes distant from Valcartier station and lying on both sides of Jacques Cartier river, could be sold advantageously?

5. Has the government received any offer for this property or have any representations been made on this subject?

6. Who is the present caretaker of the said Valcartier camp? Under what circumstances and by whose influence was he appointed? Is his appointment subject to cancellation at the pleasure of the government? What are his duties? Who is his immediate superior? Does the government receive regular reports concerning this camp and this caretaker? Has the caretaker any assistants? If so, what are their names and by whom were they appointed? Is the said camp, as a military property, inspected from time to time? Are reports made to the Department of Militia? Is the government aware that last summer, 1922, there were a large number of people occupying the various camp buildings? In what right and under whose authority were said buildings occupied?

7. Has the Commanding Officer of military district No. 5 any supervision over this property and does he make reports? If so, will the government produce such reports? Is there any correspondence between the Department of Militia and the Department of Agriculture, concerning this property? If so, will the government produce it? What is the salary of this caretaker and of his assistants?

8. Is it a fact that one of the buildings on this camp was destroyed by fire in the month of January last? Was a military inquiry made as to the causes of this fire and to that end were all witnesses sought for or was the department satisfied with a mere report? Are there any correspondence or documents on the subject? If so, will the government produce them?

9. Is it a faet that in 1915 a road was built from the said camp to Quebec and that the Ste. Catherine public road between range IV and St. Michel was then closed by the Military authorities and that since that time the camp road alone is and can be used? Is not this road the property of the government and as such must it be looked affer by the government winter and summer. Were orders given to this effect and is there any control over the execution of the orders given? Is it the caretaker of the camp who is responsible for the maintenance of this road?

March 8, 1923

Mr. DELISLE (Translation):

Mr. Chairman, I wish to draw the atttention of the committee to the fact that this wharf will be built in the interest of the agricultural class. Not only the farmers of Grondines have signed a petition requesting the building of this wharf, but also those of the parishes of Deschambault, St. Gilbert, St. Marc des Carrieres, St. Casimir, St. Thuribe, St. Ubalde, and even those of Ste. Anne de la Perade in the adjoining county; as it is far more advantageous for the farmers to carry their products by water than by rail.

I reiterate my statement that the construction of this wharf will especially be to the advantage of the farmers and I express the hope that the committee will approve of this item.

Amendment withdrawn.
