Mr. HEENAN:

I would say that the person who owns the label would be the one who would apply for cancellation.

Mr. GUTHRIE:

Then section 7 should

be amended to make it conform to the provisions of section 18, which is printed on the opposite page, and which provides that only the person who registers is entitled to apply for cancellation. The language of the bill would imply that any person, including the trade union, can apply to the Exchequer court for cancellation of the trade union label.

Mr. STEVENS:

It might be well to let

this go as it is. We have drawn the minister's attention to the possible anomaly. If the minister will give the matter thought, an amendment can be made later, if necessary, in the Senate.

Mr. MOTHERWELL:

The major feature of this measure is the same as the legislation which was before the House last year in the form of a private bill sponsored by the hon. member for Mackenzie (Mr. Campbell). It first saw the light of day in the form of a subsection of a certain section of the original bill of 1925 known as the Turgeon draft bill, but for reasons I do not need to go into, it did not get through the House. Last year the measure did get through this House but became stranded in the Senate, also for reasons which I need not go into.
