Mr. GLEN:

The Georgian bay islands parks will consist of Beausoleil island, Flowerpot island and some twenty eight smaller islands, with a total acreage of 3.438 acres.

The next is Mallorytown landing park. The new scenic highway which the provincial government is constructing between Brock-ville and Gananoque runs through the Mallorytown landing park, one of the St. Lawrence Islands parks. The provincial government secured and transferred to the dominion a small area adjoining the park in compensation for the area taken up by the right of way for the highway.

The area of the parcel being added to this park is 3-38 acres.

The total area of Mallorytown landing park is approximately 10 acres.

St. Lawrence islands parks, consisting of 15 islands, contain approximately 190 acres.

The idea of this whole bill is to round out, under the surveys that have been made, the boundaries of the parks, including some portions and excluding other portions.

Mr. MaoNICOL: The schedule in connection with Point Pelee park exempts 200 feet along the foreshore. Would that not mean the spoiling of the part to be annexed?

Mr. MacNICOL:

But it exempts a strip

of 200 feet along the foreshore. Unless the park owns the land lying along the foreshore, would this exemption not spoil it?

We need some of it and some we do not. What we have we bought from the estate of Mr. Post.
