Most Recent Speeches (Page 4 of 435)


May 15, 1986

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

Mr. Speaker, I think I can give the House that assurance and I want to say first of all that almost all contracts were let by the previous Government. As the Minister of Public of Works, I have been responsible for museums only since May 1985, and I can again give the Hon. Member the assurance that everything is being done by public tender, in the best interests of Canadians.

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

Mr. Speaker, I welcome this opportunity to remind the House that it is customary to limit access to official residences.

As part of its new responsibilities, the NCC has decided to apply the same policy to the Governor General's residence.

I would like to remind the Hon. Member who is showing a great deal of concern for those who visit the residence that it will always be possible for Canadians to visit the Governor General's residence on the special and specific occasions when this was possible before.

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

1. (a) and

(b) The Daly building property is still owned by Public Works Canada. However, Treasury Board has approved the transfer of the property to the National Capital Commission. The Department of Justice will be requested to legally close the transaction.

2. NCC is looking for adaptive re-use of the building and has conducted a prequalification call which attracted 14 submissions. Six of these developers were then prequalified.

(a) NCC is now proceeding to Stage II of the proposal call, involving a request for financial proposals for the property. NCC considers that sufficient interest has been demonstrated to make retention of the existing structure possible.

(b) It is anticipated that financial proposals will be received by August, 1986, and that the necessary municipal and federal approvals will then be sought for a projected construction start of Fall, 1988.

(c) The selection of the lessee will depend on the outcome of the proposal call process.

May 1, 1986

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

Mr. Speaker, with your permission I would like to thank my hon. colleagues for their applause. I know why they want to emphasize my return to the House.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to say to you, sir, and to this House that I want to congratulate my hon. colleague on his interest in Canadian artists. As for his particular question, it is true that this year, the National Capital Commission will give a Belgian company another opportunity to demonstrate its skills in Canada. At the same time I can inform the Hon. Member that the National Capital Commission has also retained the services of a company from Montreal, La Masquinerie, which will also have make-up workshops. I think this decision to allow us to compare foreign artists with Canadians should make for a better show for Canadians, which is of course the whole point of the exercise.

January 27, 1986

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

Mr. Speaker, I cannot but agree with the words spoken by the Hon. Member for Hull-Aylmer (Mr. Isabelle), who knew the former Member for Quebec East, Mr. Duquet, personally, and perhaps even better than I did.

When I arrived in the House of Commons in 1968, I had the pleasure of getting to know our colleague, and, Mr. Speaker, I wish to express my deepest regrets at his passing away. I also would like to say I believe Mr. Duquet was always very much respected on both sides of the House, for his speeches as well as for his actions. He was a politician who, through his achievements, demonstrated his lively interest in the province of Quebec and his country. I know that practically his whole life was dedicated to politics. I think I can say, without exaggeration, that he did so out of a desire to serve his fellow men.

January 27, 1986

Today, speaking on behalf of all my colleagues, the Prime Minister of Canada (Mr. Mulroney) and the entire Cabinet, I wish to offer his family the customary condolences, and I want them to know we shall remember with respect his contribution to the House of Commons and the manner in which he served a community which he represented so faithfully and so well.
