The St. Lawrence Seaway Authority advises as follows: 1. There was no operating deficit in the years 1968, 1969 and 1970. The Montreal-Lake Ontario section earned an operating profit (i.e. before providing for interest and for replacement of machinery and equipment) which was greater than the deficit on the Welland Canal. The following are the Canadian operating results for these years:

Mr. Gerard Duquet (Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Transport):

During the negotiations in connection with the Tobermory-South Baymouth ferry service, a great many proposals and counter-proposals were made by both the federal and Ontario governments. In the end, agreement was reached between the two governments as announced in a press release dated June 6, 1972:

"Under the new agreement the Province of Ontario will be responsible for the financial operation of the service. The agreement calls for the Federal Government to contribute $3 million to the Province of Ontario and to make the usual domestic shipbuilding subsidy for new ferries. The Province will assume the costs for dredging, for building wharfs and terminal facilities and for the construction of new vessels for this service. The Federal Government will continue to own the wharfs and to be responsible for their subsequent upkeep as well as for the maintenance of the channels."
