REQUEST FOR COPY OF ADDRESS BROADCAST BY G. V. FERGUSON OF WINNIPEG FREE PRESS ON SUNDAY, MARCH 6


On the orders of the day:


CON

Charles Hazlitt Cahan

Conservative (1867-1942)

Hon. C. H. CAHAN (St. Lawrence-St. George):

By leave of the house I should like to ask the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) a question of which I gave him notice on Monday last but which I deferred asking at the time the orders of the day were called yesterday, owing to his absence, which was due to the sad circumstances which we all know. I wonder if there will be any objection to my asking the question now.

Mr. MACKENZIE KING; No.

Mr. CAHAN; The question is; Would the Prime Minister procure and lay on the table of the house a copy of the address delivered over the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's radio system last Sunday afternoon by Mr. G. V. Ferguson, managing editor of the Winnipeg Free Press? I ask the question for this reason. In view of existing international complications, when members of the government and of the parliament of Canada, in their sincere desire for the preservation of peace, are exercising commendable reticence in their public discussions, there are many who deplore that a radio system, which is under the control of the Canadian parliament, should be freely utilized for such provocative propaganda as that which was contained in this address.

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Prime Minister; Secretary of State for External Affairs; President of the Privy Council)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Prime Minister):

The question which the

hon. member for St. Lawrence-St. George (Mr. Cahan) has asked raises a very serious issue of policy. It raises the issue of how far the government would be justified in going in the way of exercising direct control over the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. As my hon. friend is aware, the functions, powers and duties of the corporation are defined by statute, and they have been so defined as to remove the corporation from anything in the nature of possible political or other pressure on the part of the administration or any member of it. In the circumstances I rather feel that the government should not at this stage, at all events, seek on its own initiative to lay on the table of the house any papers that may have been read or speeches that may have been made over the radio. It should at least first obtain the consent of the chairman and members of the board of the corporation so to do. However, I shall have pleasure in asking my colleague, the Minister of Transport (Mr. Howe), to bring my hon. friend's question to the attention of the board of directors of the corporation. Possibly this may be the means of procuring for my hon. friend the document which he desires the house to see. If not it will at least occasion, on the part of the board, some fuller consideration than has been given thus far to the matter he has in mind.
