Mr. A. C. Cadieu (Meadow Lake):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Transport. Can the minister say what investigation is taking place into the very unfortunate accident on the Canadian National Railways north of lake Superior on Saturday, February 13?

January 19, 1960

Mr. Cadieu:

Mr. Chairman, I, also, would like to congratulate you upon your appointment to your very important office. It is one, which, I know, you will handle justly and well.

While sitting here during the debate this afternoon my mind rambled back on several occasions, to my constituency and when I heard hon. gentlemen opposite speak, some of whom I thought got a long way from the matter which we are discussing, I wished some of them had been in my riding and seen the condition of the snowed-under crops. Possibly, then, they would have understood more clearly the nature of the bill which is before the committee this afternoon.

I feel I should say a few words about this bill, representing as I do, the constituency of Meadow Lake, a riding which was hard hit by the very unseasonable harvest weather. Many areas in my riding had the heaviest rainfall on record during the time when we usually expect harvest weather, only to be followed by 20 inches of wet snow in many parts of the constituency. A further snow storm followed.

This bill will help many farmers who are not qualified for a payment of $3 an acre up to a maximum of 200 acres owing to the fact that in some areas they have more than 50 per cent of their crop harvested. A large percentage of the crop which was threshed was damp and farmers received a very low grade.

I want to compliment the Minister of Transport on the very rapid action he took to make it possible to move tough and damp grain to the terminals for drying. Inspections under P.F.A.A. have had to be held up in many areas on account of the very low acreage harvested. Further inspections will have to be carried out in the spring when the harvest has been completed. I think many townships will qualify for assistance under the P.F.A.A., where crops were neither swathed nor stooked. The grain was standing when the storm hit, but was left lying flat on the ground. I think this bill is very urgent, and I certainly hope it will be passed without undue delay.

Mr. Cadieu:

Mr. Chairman, in my few brief remarks I first want to congratulate the Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources for bringing such a worth-while program before the house, one which is long overdue. The people of my constituency are deeply concerned about northern road development. I must also pay tribute to those people of Meadow Lake constituency who have formed Meadow Lake Freightways and have bulldozed a winter road through to the

south shore of lake Athabasca, thus making it possible to take in freight during the winter months to serve the vast mining area in and around Uranium City. This project has reduced transportation costs by 7 cents a pound. An all-weather road over this route would further reduce the cost of operating in this area by eliminating the necessity of stocking an eight months supply of all necessary commodities. It would open a potential 150,000 square miles of virgin territory to commercial fishing, lumbering, mining and tourist traffic.

Aside from these important facts, all Canada is interested in achieving road access to the huge uranium strike in and around Uranium City. We in the north look forward to making a considerable contribution to Canada's export trade through uranium as well as to our own national development. I look upon this road as a very urgent project and I sincerely hope that the government of Saskatchewan and the federal government will be able to work together to make this worth-while project a reality. I hope it will not be too long before I will be able to announce to the people of Meadow Lake constituency that the surveying of this worth-while project is under way. I have made many trips over this route from Buffalo Narrows to the south shore of lake Athabasca by air. I feel that this is a very urgent road and I certainly hope that we in Meadow Lake will see this become a reality.
