December 14, 1945

Mr. MACDONALD (Halifax):

During the war a munitions ship caught fire and was sunk by shell fire in Halifax harbour. The following

year the cargo was removed, but the vessel herself is still lying in navigable waters, practically in mid-channel and is now a menace to navigation, particularly during storms when vessels may drag their anchors. She is a submerged wreck and her position is marked by two wreck buoys. The wreck should be removed because it is lying in good anchorage ground and, if damage to another ship were occasioned, it might prejudicially affect the port. I would ask the minister to have the proper officials of his department look into this matter.

Mr. MACDONALD (Halifax):

What use has been planned for the eastern passage airport at Halifax, iwhich has been used during the war by the R.C.A.F. and also as an Atlantic terminal of the Trans-Canada Air Lines? What I particularly want to know is, will it be open now for private flying and local air lines?

Mr. MACDONALD (Halifax):

Will it be used now for private flying and for local air lines, or do you count on having it used exclusively by the air force and by Trans-Canada ?
