John George Diefenbaker (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Leader of the Opposition):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege affecting almost a million people in this country, specifically in the province of Saskatchewan. I have before me a document entitled "Special Centennial Events" issued by the Canadian Government Travel Bureau, Ottawa, under the authority of the Department of Trade and Commerce. On the second page the following appears:

Abbreviations of Provinces and Territories

Alberta-Alta.

British Columbia-B.C.

The Northwest Territories is the last listed. Saskatchewan is entirely omitted.

Mr. Diefenbaker:

Saskatchewan is entirely omitted in the portion dealing with abbreviations. We know that in that province we may be in the bad books of the present government; we might indeed be described as canines, but I ask the Department of Trade and Commerce to rectify this very serious omission.

Mr. Speaker, I think perhaps I ought to deal with such an important question, and reassure the right hon. gentleman that I shall take the matter up at once with the premier of Saskatchewan to see if he cannot explain this omission.
