WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS

HAMILTON TIGER

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. My question of privilege relates, as it should, to something that happened in this house. On November 14, as reported at page 1126 of Hansard, the parliamentary assistant to the Minister of National Defence (Mr. Lambert), who is also the member for Edmonton West, prophesied that there would be coming east in a few weeks a fierce horde of Eskimos whom he described as bigger, faster and hungrier than ever. I suppose, since the hon. member has had to eat his words, my point of privilege should be regarded as satisfied. Seriously, however, may I join with the Secretary of State (Mrs. Fairclough), the hon. member for Hamilton South (Mr. McDonald) and others in congratulating the Hamilton Tiger Cats upon what they did on Saturday. May I say also that we from Winnipeg are very proud of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Mr. Richard A. Bell (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance):

Mr. Speaker, the short title fully indicates the purpose of the bill. An agreement between the government of Canada and the government of the commonwealth of Australia for the avoidance of double taxation and the prevention of fiscal evasion with respect to income taxes was concluded at Mont Tremblant on October 1, 1957, and this bill is to give parliamentary ratification to this agreement. The agreement is similar in form to the agreements which Canada already has with the United Kingdom, New Zealand, the United States of America and a number of other countries.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
