THE RECONSTRUCTION PROGRAMME f
Tens of thousands will be employed in the great reconstruction programme
of the Government—in projects which have been planned and in some cases
already started.
The construction of plants and lines for the B.C. Power Commission will
run into millions of dollars during the next five years.
The $10,000,000 Highway Programme to which the Government is already
committed will provide employment for thousands.
The Hope-Princeton Highway will be started immediately the Highway
Commission awards the contract.
The $6,000,000 Peace River Outlet is in process of construction.
Public buildings, long needed, will now be built in Victoria, Vancouver
and other centres.
The $5,000,000 programme of the University of British Columbia only
awaits the release of men and materials. -
A $15,000,000 school construction programme is envisioned in the Cameron
Report which is being implemented.
$1,600,000 is now allocated to new hospital construction.
THE P.G.E. RAILWAY
Measures have now been undertaken towards the completion of the P.G.E.
Railway and the development of the great North land it serves. The cooperation of the Dominion Government, the C.N.R. and C.P.R. has been
secured in setting up a representative committee whose report will be the
basis of a definite plan of action.
The Act, which authorized vast grants of land, as an inducement to outside
capital to develop and extend the P.G.E., will be repealed in the interests /!?-£* A^^^i^M^vuv^&- /A^-UA^   ->OL^~C^H ^^^i^>vi>
