December 17, 1986

Hon. Roch La Salle (Minister of State):

Mr. Speaker, the House will be delighted to know that the Company has been responsible for investments totalling some S30 million in the Vieux-Port de Quebec area over the past year. There is also the possibility, of course, that the University of Quebec Headquarters could be moved to that area. I have personally met the minister responsible, Mr. Ryan, about this. He has indicated that he was not prepared to invest between $25 million and $40 million to finance the establishment of a university, but that he would be quite receptive to a proposal which is already before the Company to integrate the presence of the University of Quebec. We hope to be able to give a positive response in that regard within the context of a proposal which is before us and which would certainly delight both the residents and the authorities of the City of Quebec.

Hon. Roch La Salle (Minister of State):

Mr. Speaker, I welcome this opportunity to remind the senior Members of this House of the many and complex discussions that took place as a result of these expropriations. Today, I am pleased to acknowledge to the Hon. Member that of the sale proposals concerning 1,600 saleable properties when I took over this file, 65 per cent have already been signed, and within the next 12 months, we should have finalized the entirely justified repossession of this land by the original owners.

As for the contentious cases, I can give the Hon. Member the assurance that this week I will be meeting with my director general to discuss them and give those concerned the assurance that they will be given all the help and assistance they need to obtain the fairest possible settlement.

Hon. Roch La Salle (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased to confirm to the House that indeed I made a commitment concerning the obviously false allegations of the Hon. Member for Glengarry-Prescott- Russell that 90 per cent of contracts under $30,000 were awarded without tenders. Mr. Speaker, you know very well that Treasury Board requirements do not specify tenders in the case of contracts under $30,000. Despite this leeway given to us by Treasury Board, I am pleased to shed light on this report which I will be tabling later today and according to which 78 per cent of all contracts under $30,000 have been awarded on the basis of tender calls. I do hope the media will take this opportunity to dispel any uncertainty created by these false allegations.

Hon. Roch La Salle (Minister of Public Works):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 67(2), it is my pleasure to table today in both official languages the report on contracts for public works under $30,000, which report naturally gives a true and honest picture for all regions and provinces as well as the national average.

Hon. Roch La Salle (Minister of Public Works):

First, Mr. Speaker, Hon. Members will be pleased to learn that this Government is committed to encourage significant private sector investments.

As to our Government's decision to dispose of surplus buildings, the answer to the Hon. Member's question is this: 250 real estate deals have been concluded so far; $60 million will be added to the public treasury; Canadians will save close to $4 million in terms of taxes and services related to vacant buildings; and, finaly, more interesting still, we have learned that the private sector might invest in excess of $1 billion. That, Mr. Speaker, is what we on this side of the House call good business!
