Mr. Brisco:

Either we deal with the whole thing now by taking this bill out of the House and sending it back to the committee where it belongs, or we will have to deal piecemeal with all these anomalies and odd situations which will occur as we progress. We will have to look after all these oddballs, these so-called loopholes with reference to these trade journals and professional magazines.

Is the hon. member for Mississauga (Mr. Abbott) rising to ask a question?

Mr. Abbott:

Yes, Mr. Speaker. Since the hon. member referred to oddballs I wonder if he would identify to whom he was referring.

Mr. Brisco:

I am sorry, Mr. Speaker, if the hon. member took my reference to oddballs as a personal affront. That is his problem, not mine. I shall continue with the debate. This afternoon I had the opportunity to review MD of Canada. I was very impressed by its international flavour and content, just as I would be equally interested in reading the cattlemen's magazine with its international flavour and content and its articles submitted by foreign authors not referring to things in Canada but things which affect Canadians, be it in medicine, agriculture, the beef industry, or whatever.

My concern is that somewhere down the line this type of journal will be affected if it cannot be favourably covered by the legislation. Finally, my concern is that I have more than five minutes to go. Surely there is another member over there with another question.

Mr. Baker (Grenville-Carleton):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. We are very anxious to deal with this bill as fully and as fairly as we can having regard to the important principle involved. I would respectfully suggest that government members who persist in interrupting members of the opposition when they are speaking are doing nothing to advance this. If government members are truly anxious to have this matter proceeded with they should sit quietly and allow opposition members to make their speeches, and extend to us the same courtesy we would extend them if they chose to speak on this bill.

Mr. Blais:

Mr. Speaker, I must rise on this point of order. The hon. member for Grenville-Carleton (Mr. Baker) at about five minutes to ten tends to be very farcical. This bill has been subject to a filibuster since last Thursday. From the quality of the debate from the other side and the remarks made by the hon. member for Grenville-Carleton it is evident that an attempt is being made by the opposition to delay passage of this bill and to prevent effect being given to the will of this House.

Order, please. There was quite a bit of noise in the House and I think the hon. member who had the floor should be entitled to continue.

Mr. Brisco:

I thank you, Mr. Speaker, just as I thank the hon. member for Grenville-Carleton (Mr. Baker). After a full day in this House and a full day in my office-and the same applies to other members-it may well be that the quality of the presentation and debate perhaps dwindles somewhat as the hour approaches ten o'clock.

That should be no reflection on the sincere efforts of members on this side of this House and some from the other side of the House to be heard in their attempt to see that this bill is removed from the House, or at least amended as proposed by the hon. member for Vancouver-Kings-way.

Mr. Brisco:

Mr. Speaker, one of the very interesting things in respect of this bill is the fact that in the beginning there was a wave of nationalism on the part of the Canadian public that was really quite interesting. However, that wave of so-called nationalism has waned as the public has perceived the true purpose and intent of this Liberal bill. There is no question about the manner in which my constituents and those of other members have addressed themselves to this bill. Their concern is now being reflected and is the antithesis of the proposal originally put forward in this bill by the Secretary of State (Mr. Faulkner).

It is interesting to note the backlash from the backwoods, to the grassroots if you like. These are the people who are most concerned and who will be affected and who will be affected. The little old lady who reads Reader's Digest is the type of person writing to me. These people are really concerned. Let me return to the amendment of the hon. member for Vancouver-Kingsway. I would support this amendment right down the line.

Mr. Brisco:

Either there is support for this amendment, which is intelligent and well thought out, or the bill will be denied by this House and by this party. It is either that, or the bill must go back to the committee. I would urge that this House and the minister reconsider the decision. This debate is being prolonged and protracted, as the minister knows, simply because this side will not give an inch on Bill C-58 until it has been intelligently amended. At this point I would inquire of you, Mr. Speaker, if it would be safe to call it ten o'clock.
