Mr. Gardiner:

The Assiniboia Construction Company. They are working on it now. The second tunnel has been completed as far as boring through the rock is concerned, and they are now completing the work of cementing the inside of the tunnel. So the job is being completed within the time set when the second contract was let.

Mr. Harkness:

The minister said the contract for the second tunnel was given to another company on a cost plus basis. I wonder if the minister would tell us, if he has the information, where the rock tunnellers working on that contract came from and if their cost is included in the cost plus figure.

Mr. Gardiner:

The men doing the work are miners from British Columbia. Even in Alberta we sometimes have to get help from British Columbia. Our information, which I think is correct, is that one of the best tunnellers in Canada is Stevens of Vancouver. Stevens was obtained by the Assiniboia Construction Company to take charge of this work, and I understand the plan is that this man makes his agreement with the miners who are brought down to do the job, and the work is done by them on the basis of agreements made with him.

Mr. Gardiner:

Yes. Then that is allowed as part of the cost, and the work proceeds on that basis.
