Hon. Lionel Chevrier (Laurier):
May I ask
the Minister of Transport a question. Have tolls for the St. Lawrence seaway been established pursuant to the St. Lawrence Seaway Authority Act, and if not will he tell the house how it is that a member of the United States tolls committee announced in Washington recently that tolls had been fixed at 50 cents a ton for bulk commodities and $1.25 a ton for general cargo? What I should like to know is whether or not the Canadian seaway authority was consulted and agreed to this announcement?
