Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

Mr. Speaker, my supplementary question is on the same subject. In areas where the one and only elevator is being phased out, has the government any plans to assist farmers with the extra haulage necessitated by the provision of trucks to haul grain to the nearest elevator?

Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Justice in his capacity as the minister responsible for the Wheat Board. With reference to the takeover by Manitoba Pool Elevators of the line elevator system of Federal Grain and the consequent announcement of closure of elevators which is causing great hardship for many farmers, can the minister say whether the Wheat Board is looking into these closures with a view to protection of the farmers concerned?

Mr. Robert Simpson (Churchill):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Minister of Public Works. It relates to the redevelopment program being carried out jointly at Churchill, Manitoba, by the province and the federal government. Can the minister say whether any final decision has been reached concerning the inclusion in the program of an incinerator so that the influx of polar bears might be controlled or discouraged?

Mr. Simpson:

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, I thought the minister was preparing to rise. I was merely asking whether a final decision had been taken.
