-established Ontario House in London, England. The avowed purpose of that government agency, a purpose which it has admirably fulfilled, was and is to attract to Canada the investment of foreign capital.

Mr. Macnaughlon:

What difference, may I ask, is there between the investment of British capital in Canada's future, and the investment of capital from another country, whether it be the United States or not?

Mr. Macnaughlon:

I should like, if I may, to quote from a recent issue of the Montreal Gazette, a newspaper which is a strong supporter of the Conservative party. On Monday, May 14, under the heading "Canada's Historic Problem-Distance". The Gazette said:

Ever since-

And I insert the word "confederation".

-new links have strengthened the bond between Canada's east and west-more railways, telegraph lines, the telephone, radio, the air lines. The trans-Canada highway when it is completed will become a further major link.

It went on to say:

Today Canadian technological know-how makes the boldest engineering schemes feasible. But there remains the problem of finding money to pay for them. That problem is once again occupying Canada's parliament.

Mr. Macnaughlon:

The problem of finding the money to pay for another in the long line of major Canadian economic developments is indeed facing this parliament, but some of the members of parliament have shown themselves totally disinclined to face the problem.

Mr. Macnaughlon:

Perhaps they honestly feel that the people of Canada will be impressed by these forlorn, delaying tactics. If so, I would earnestly advise them to feel the public pulse a bit more professionally. When we consider the construction of a pipe line from the Canadian west to the Canadian east, we are considering a project of the relative magnitude and productive potential of the construction of the first transcontinental railway.

-were insufficient to constitute an effective rail block, just as their present-day philosophical heirs will be unequal to the task of setting up a pipe block.

The trans-Canada pipe-line project is a billion dollar undertaking. Not only will it be the biggest thing of its kind in the world, it will involve ancillary industrial expansion which may well result in Canada moving on an up-draft of natural gas to a higher plateau of national greatness.
