Mr. Gilles Gregoire (Lapointe):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Solicitor General, as minister responsible for the R.C.M.P.

Since members, ministers and even the premier in the Quebec legislature are seriously considering the possibility of their telephones being tapped, could the minister tell us whether he is aware of this problem and whether the R.C.M.P. is in any way responsible in this matter?

Mr. Gregoire:

Mr. Chairman, I should like to get some information: Does item 2c, the first one to be considered at the present time, as in the case of other departments, not authorize a general debate on the overall policy of the Department of Transport, or do we have to wait for a specific item on this matter?

The Assisiant Deputy Chairman: Order. At the present time the committee is considering a specific item.

Mr. Gregoire:

Mr. Chairman, I should like to ask the hon. Minister of Transport, since his department's policy is to keep the channel open during the winter months, whether he also intends to make the ice-breakers available to shipping, namely whether the icebreakers will be there to help the ships that need them. Will the ice-breakers be on the spot to make sure that there is always an open channel? Will they also be given the responsibility of helping navigation?

Mr. Gregoire:

Mr. Chairman, I do not intend to delay the debate, because, I realize that the minister has set his heart on it; I merely want to obtain additional information on my previous question.

The minister tells me that when he will take the matter under consideration, he will study the possibility of the altering the old notice given in remote posts on the St. Lawrence, to the boats venturing in the St. Lawrence and stating that they were doing so at

their own risk. I admit that there was a certain risk, because it was colder than in the summer.

But the notice appearing in the light-houses and wireless beacons at the entrance of the St. Lawrence mentioned that the icebreakers were not there to help ships, but only to prevent floods and that ships could not rely on the assistance of ice-breakers.

Does that part of the notice which, according to the maritime insurance companies, was responsible for increasing drastically the cost of maritime insurances, will be changed to say that ice-breakers will help ships which enter the St. Lawrence, that is to say that they still will venture at their own risks, but at least they will get help from ice-breakers.

The difference between what I am asking the minister and the previous situation is clear. Would the minister give me an answer in this respect?

Mr. Gregoire:

Mr. Chairman, may I ask the

minister whether it is groups or special commissions which are presently carrying out investigations concerning the harbour of Montreal? He said three groups were making investigations. What are those groups?
