Mr. THOMAS HAY (Springfield):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce based on an article appearing in the Ottawa Journal this morning. The article is short and I should like to read it to the house. It is headed "Canadian Press by direct wire," and reads as follows:

Regina, November 7.

The United Kingdom government has given the Canadian government an order for one million pounds of poultry to be purchased in the west, according to reliable information received here today. Manitoba is expected to supply the bulk of the shipment since the birds will be shipped from the nearest shipping points. The better part of the order will be made up of turkeys and agents are said already to be in Manitoba cheeking over flocks. It is hoped the order may stabilize the trade in western Canada where it was feared turkeys would be retailing for 12 cents a pound by the Christinas season.

I should like to ask the minister if there is any truth in this despatch.

Mr. THOMAS HAY (Springfield):

I

should like to quote from a communication which I received the other day from Mr. W. W. Childe, general secretary of the Manitoba-Ontario Trans-Canada Highway Association. It reads:

Thomas Hay, Esq., M.P.,

House of Commons, Ottawa, Ont.

Dear Mr. Hay:

At a recent meeting of the Manitoba and Ontario committees of this organization, you were officially chosen as the party whom we would like to have address all members of the House of Commons, before prorogation, on our behalf.

You are asked that on the floor of the house you pass along an invitation to the hon. Prime Minister, his hon. cabinet, and the members for all the provinces to be present at the interprovincial highway celebration on September the 7th.

This is the Manitoba and Ontario section lying east of Winnipeg, between that city and Keoora.

The official ceremony will take place at the Ontario-Manitoba border, and the celebration will be a two-day affair at both Kenora and Keewatin, Ontario.

I may say that the completion of this link in the Ontario and Manitoba part of this highway is a realization of a dream that has long been cherished by the people of eastern Manitoba and western Ontario, and this committee would therefore like to celebrate the event in a way in keeping with the occasion. It will be a historic event and to some extent national in character as it has to do with the trans-Canada highway, which is now in course of construction in parts of Canada. I therefore take pleasure, Mr. Speaker, in passing on this invitation to the members of the government and members of the House of Commons, and I trust that as many will be present on that occasion as are able to come.
