CHERRY POINT OIL SPILL-REPRESENTATIONS TO UNITED STATES RESPECTING POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO CANADIAN PROPERTY

NDP

Thomas Speakman Barnett

New Democratic Party

Mr. Thomas S. Barnett (Comox-Alberni):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Secretary of State for External Affairs. In light of statements the minister has made in this House and elsewhere that he would hold the government of the United States responsible for the results of any oil spills in the transport of oil on the Pacific coast, has the minister received any report of a spill of oil from a tanker at Cherry Point, Washington, moving toward or into Canadian waters and, if so, has he taken this matter

up with the appropriate authorities of the United States government?

ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE

CONSTITUTIONALITY OF SASKATCHEWAN BILL RESPECTING OWNERSHIP OF FARM LAND

PC

John George Diefenbaker

Progressive Conservative

Right Hon. J. G. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert):

Mr. Speaker, I wish to direct my question to the Minister of Justice. It has to do with the unCanadian, if not unconstitutional, course of action being taken by the government of Saskatchewan under what is called the foreign ownership of land bill whereby Canadians outside the province of Saskatchewan are denied the right to inherit or own land in Saskatchewan. The government of that province is now receiving representations in this connection. Has the government of Canada communicated with the government of Saskatchewan and pointed out the danger of legislation that denies Canadians equality in the holding of land?

Hon. Otto E. Lang (Minister of Justice):

Mr. Speaker, the government has not formally communicated its view to the government of Saskatchewan at this point in time, but I think the government of Saskatchewan knows this government's views.

Mr. Diefenbaker:

Mr. Speaker, I doubt whether that government is composed of mindreaders. Instead of relying on them having that capacity, will the minister inform that government that this kind of legislation is a denial of Canadianism?

Mr. Diefenbaker:

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I am trying to get an answer to a very simple question, but the minister, who is usually vociferous in his answers, seems to be disregarding a situation which is causing deep unrest in Saskatchewan.

I have to suggest to both the right hon. member for Prince Albert and the minister that the supplementary was rather in the form of a representation.

IMMIGRATION

EXTENSION OF VISITOR'S STATUS OF HOWARD HUGHES FOR ONE YEAR-REQUEST FOR STATEMENT

Steve Eugene Paproski

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Steven E. Paproski (Edmonton Centre):

Mr. Speaker, I had a question for the Minister of Manpower and Immigration, but since he is not here may I direct it to his vociferous parliamentary secretary. In view of the fact

June 5, 1972

Howard Hughes has been given a further ministerial stay, allowing him to extend his visit to Canada, and in view of the fact that a member of the Department of Immigration has personally looked after this procedure, would the parliamentary secretary advise the House, the country and the world whether "H.H." is alive and well?
