As to the

question of the traffic of coal into the parks, this is the first time I have heard of it, and I shall be glad to look into it. With regard to the question of land surveys for residents at Banff, I understand surveys are being made to provide further residential facilities.

Mr. Gibson (Hamilton West):

The expenditures for this year are Banff, $1,529,000, and Jasper, $2,740,000. I may say that while the expenditure at Jasper is higher of course Banff had a great lead by having an earlier start, and a considerably greater sum of money has previously been spent on Banff.
