Hon. J. C. ELLIOTT (Minister of Public Works):
Mr. Speaker, I desire in answer to
the question asked by the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Stevens) of my colleague the Minister of Marine and Fisheries (Mr. Cardin) yesterday, to say that no plans have been prepared by the government with regard to the dam, locks or causeway about which he was inquiring. Plans were prepared and submitted to the government by the Burrard Inlet Causeway Company Limited, in which they proposed to make a structure which would answer the requirements of the case at that particular point, and for which they asked a subsidy of $125,000 a year by way of assistance. That request has not been granted.
