1. Has the board of broadcast governors received and scrutinized the various materials prepared by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce for its so-called "Operation Freedom"?

2. Has the board examined the releases designed for public service use by radio and television stations which are contained in these kits; and, if so, has it determined whether such material for commentary or spots should be labelled as political statements in the sense that it may attack one or more political parties and support one or more political parties?

3. Has the board considered whether the matter of equal time for rebuttal should be applied with regard to this "Operation Freedom" propaganda;

Questions

and, if not, would the board consider making an appraisal of the material with a view to determining whether this is the right step to be taken?

Mr. Chambers:

Specifications for the equipment referred to in this question contain the following clause: "To the full extent to which they are procurable, consistent with proper economy and the expeditious carrying out of the work, Canadian labour and material shall be employed".

The combination refrigerator, range and sink unit quoted in the specifications was used as a criterion only. If an equivalent product were manufactured in Canada, it would be acceptable.

Answer by: Mr. Hamilton (Notre Dame de Grace): Yes.

Walter Gilbert Dinsdale (Minister of Northern Affairs and National Resources)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Dinsdale:

In May of 1960 in preparation for the establishment of the national aviation museum in time for the celebration of the golden anniversary of flying in Canada, 100,000 copies of a leaflet were printed for distribution to visitors when the museum opened. This descriptive leaflet carried text in both French and English on a reversible self cover. Because of the many years of delay in getting this project under way, the work had to be done hurriedly, and unfortunately a spelling error in the original art work for the French cover was not discovered until the printing had been completed. The leaflet was reprinted at a cost of $1,300, which was the cost of the original printing.

The national aviation museum has since come under the jurisdiction of the museum branch of my department. Hon. members will be interested to learn that the museum has attracted widespread public interest and no less than 143,000 persons visited it in 1961.
