Thomas Langton Church
Mr. T. L. CHURCH (North Toronto):
would like to ask the Minister of Railways and Canals if the attention of the government has been called to the statement, published to-day, of Sir Adam Beck with regard to the acute shortage of power Ontario is facing, and whether the government will grant the application filed by the government of Ontario and the Ontario Hydro-Electric Commission a long time ago for leave to develop power at the Morrisburg dam to take care of Ontario's power needs. Has such application been refused, and if so, what answer has the government made in respect to it?
Hon. GEORGE P. GRAHAM (Minister of Railways and Canals): The Ontario government, I believe, have submitted to the Department of Public Works, under the statute, plans for the construction of a dam at Morrisburg. These plans have not up to the present been approved.
REVISION OF RULES OF THE HOUSE On the Orders of the Day:
