Mr. Chairman, if I may answer the hon. member immediately, I will say to him that the legislation governing private stations contains means of control. If there are abuses, the Board of Broadcast Governors can suspend the licence of a station, and I do not think there is any danger of an invasion by American culture through channel 4 in Quebec city. If that channel, which the hon. member looks at and which is as Canadian as any other station is guilty of abuses, the Board of Broadcast Governors has the means to take action to remedy the situation.

However, I know that some Quebeckers would be interested in making profits, in having that station under their control, but I do not think that it is the responsibility of the government to decide which member of the company is going to make profits.
