Mr. Flemming (Royal):

The explanation is that it has to do with a vote which I believe has been made in the house-certainly prior to my being here-amounting to $5 million for the federal contribution to forest access roads. This approximately $800,000 is the amount which is anticipated will be spent or at least it is the federal government's share of the amount that will be spent by the provinces between now and the end of the fiscal period ending March 31. For the information of the committee I may say that we have replies from all provinces, except three I believe, in connection with forest access road. Steps are being taken immediately to contact those three provinces with a view to making the winter works program, so far as forest access roads are concerned, applicable to all the provinces throughout the whole country. However, we have from seven of the provinces at the present time replies indicating agreement with the federal government proposal which is to share on a 50-50 basis all the expenses. Previously I believe some objection was raised by the provinces with regard to federal participation on a 50 per cent share of the labour cost only. This arrangement has been changed and the proposal which has been made has been that the total cost of forest access roads shall be shared.

Mr. Flemming (Royal):

I do not think the gross amount has been changed. It was $5

million then; it is still $5 million. It may be that there will be a little bit more disposition on the part of Quebec to co-operate; I would not say.

Mr. Flemming (Royal):

Yes, I have the figures here. If I may, I will give just the round figures. They are as follows:

Province Amount

Quebec $1,250,000

British Columbia 1,183,000

Prince Edward Island 10,000

That is a token amount.

Province Amount

Newfoundland $ 173,000

Nova Scotia 85,000

New Brunswick 135,000

Ontario 940,000

Manitoba 333,000

Saskatchewan 232,000

Alberta 655,000

I believe that is the information the hon. gentleman wanted.

Mr. Flemming (Royal):

Mr. Chairman, I am very pleased to supply the information. This vote really consists of two items. One is for a winter works program to be undertaken at the Petawawa forest experimental station. I could give the details, but the total is $29,340. The other is the winter works program al Acadia which, as hon. members know, is neai Fredericton, New Brunswick. The total amount is $14,700. That makes a total of $44,000. I shall be glad to give the details. However, in general terms that is the explanation.
