CHICAGO DRAINAGE CANAL


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Charles A. Stewart (Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs; Minister of Mines; Minister of the Interior)

Liberal

Hon. CHARLES STEWART (Minister of the Interior):

I promised to lay on the table

of the house to-day the papers and communications between the Canadian government and the government of the United States in connection with the Chicago drainage question. That promise was made upon the request of the hon. member for St. Lawrence-St. George (Mr. Cahan). I find, however, that in respect of the two recent dispatches that have passed between the two governments the government at Washington has not yet consented to their being made public. We expect to have that consent within a few days, when I shall bring down the return.

RADIO-CANCELLATION OF LICENSES


On the orders of the day: ,


LAB

James Shaver Woodsworth

Labour

Mr. J. S. WOODSWORTH (Winnipeg North Centre):

Would the Minister of Marine

Customs Act Amendment

and Fisheries (Mr. Cardin) supplement what he said yesterday with regard to the cancellation of certain radio licenses, by stating the reason for the cancellation of the license of Universal Radio of Canada, Limited, which I understand is an independent concern although its equipment has been used by the International Bible Students Association. What reason is there for cancelling the license of this organization?

Pierre-Joseph-Arthur Cardin (Minister of Marine and Fisheries)

Liberal

Hon. P. J. A. CARDIN (Minister of Marine and Fisheries):

The reasons for the canceL

lation of that license were the same as those advanced for the cancellation of the others. I quite realize that this company may be in a somewhat different position. This point has been brought to my attention, and I am considering the facts in regard to that particular case. I will be in a position before very long to give a decision in regard to it.
