Limited, covering construction of a private elevator on a government owned wharf; if so, when?

2. Has work on this elevator started; if so, who gave the necessary authority, and was it given before the expiratory date for the approval of plans had elapsed?

3. What money was spent by the government in developing the site upon which the elevator is being constructed?

4. What annual revenue does the government expect to receive, and what yield does this give on the investment?

5. Are not the present elevator facilities at Montreal and Quebec adequate?

6. If an elevator is required at Three Rivers, why does the government not build and operate it when they already have developed this site?

Mr. HOWE;

1. Yes. The Three Rivers harbour commissioners who went out of office 31st October, 1935, had authorized and executed a lease of a site on the 29th October, 1935. The new board of harbour commissioners who assumed office 1st November, 1935, recognized the dbligation entered into by the old board but found a modification and revision of the terms embodied in the lease necessary in the public interest. The revised lease was executed 26th February, 1936.

2. Yes. Approval of the plans under the Navigable Waters Protection Act was found to be unnecessary.

3. The site leased forms part of the property Which was made available for use by dredging, filling and reclaiming 834,512 sq. ft. of land and by building 2,690 lineal feet of wharf frontage. The cost of the reclaimed area based on the total cost of the work is approximately $3 per sq. ft. On this basis the value of the site leased is $206,100.

Questions

4. Estimated annual revenue:

1. Rental of land, 68,700 sq. ft.

at 5c. per sq. ft $ 3,435

2. For use of wharf frontage,

300 ft. at $2 per ft 600

3. 6c. per ton on all grain passing through the elevator estimated at 16,000,000 bus 28,800

Total $32,835

This revenue would yield 16 per cent on the investment in the land leased.

5. This is a matter of opinion.

6. In the opinion of the government if private capital is willing to build and operate a grain elevator at Three Rivers, it should be allowed to do so.

Mr. ROGERS:

Under relief legislation the dominion government has entered into an agreement with the province of Quebec, under the terms of which the dominion, province, and municipality contribute each a sum not exceeding $200 towards the settling on the land of any family which is on relief, or which would otherwise be in receipt of relief. Provision is made for an additional contribution of $33.33 for subsistence expenditures during the third year of settlement by each party to the agreement if the family is not self-supporting at the end of the two year period.

Selection of settlers is made by a committee which includes representatives of the federal government, the province, and the colonization departments of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Canadian National Railways. This committee has selected for settlement 976 families with 5,029 dependents, of which number 21 settlers with 97 dependents are from the district of Jacques-Cartier.
