Mr. CHEVRIER:

The object of this bill is to authorize the harbour commissioners of Toronto to purchase a tract of land having an area of 3-4 acres lying north of their present holdings on the north side of Fleet street and east of Fort York armouries in the city of Toronto. The bill also gives to the Toronto harbour commissioners authority to issue debentures in order to raise money with which to pay the purchase price. The powers contained in the bill are in addition to and supplemental of the powers already contained in the Toronto Harbour Commissioners Act, 1911.

PRIVILEGE

MR. MICHAUD-REFERENCE TO ARTICLE IN MONTREAL "GAZETTE"

LIB

Mr. BENOIT MICHAUD (Restigoucbe-Madawaska):

Mr. Speaker, I rise to a question of privilege. On the front page of this morning's issue of the Gazette there appears an article headed, "Debate on controversial budget carried on before empty seats." As the title suggests, this article criticizes severely, without justification, hon. members of the House of Commons. If the reporter had taken the trouble to inquire into the cause of the absence of a large number of members yesterday afternoon he would have found out that a great many of them were busy in attendance before a large and important committee. The reporter stated that there have been 245 members in the house during the course of the present session but, as we all know, three vacancies have occurred. Either the reporter's Sense of observation is no keener than his

judgment, or else he is disclosing an unusual lack of good faith, and that requires no further comment.

tRecoveries of subsidy were made through the Department of Munitions and Supply on potatoes consumed by the armed forces. These recoveries together with other adjustments in subsidies paid, exceeded the total sums of claims paid by the amount of the figures marked t.

Note: Difference between subsidy payment in the years 1945 and 1946 as compared with importations is explained by the fact that some of the 1946 expenditure is applicable to importations during November and December 1945. On the other hand, the 1946 figure will increase with settlement of outstanding claims applicable to the shown imports.
