Mr. Duquet:

Yes, that is right, in 1535. Mr. Chairman, 1 wish to point out to the minister the fact that this spot was made into a public park about ten years ago. Numerous representations have been made by the authorities of the city of Quebec, by public bodies such as the Societe St. Jean Baptiste, citizens' leagues and others so that this historical site would be developed at last and steps taken so that the people could commemorate by a monument and visits, the event I mentioned, that is the discovery of Canada.

Mr. Duquel:

Mr. Chairman, I would like to take the opportunity afforded me tonight by the consideration of the estimates of the Department of Northern Affairs and National Resources to call the attention of the minister (Mr. Laing) to something which is dear to my heart and which, in my opinion, will also open a chapter in our history: it is about a park located in the riding of Quebec East where, in 1935, set foot the discoverer of our country, Jacques Cartier-
