Thomas Langton Church

National Government


The reply of the minister, as handed him by the C.B.C., is that they are arranging network special programmes, and the minister says he has no knowledge in regard to the private stations. The list of programmes for to-morrow does not include any services of this kind, and I suggest that the minister should consider applying the principles of the Lord's Day Act to Good Friday, because so far during this war there have been no special services broadcast on this day. My question remains unanswered.
Mr. LaFLECHE: I have already explained to the hon. gentlemaan that I gave him the reply as I received it from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. I added that I had tried to get what I believe is in existence-a copy of the printed programme for the week during which Good Friday occurs, that is this week. I wanted to give my hon. friend an answer this afternoon because Good Friday is to-morrow. As to the last remarks of the hon. member, I shall have great pleasure in passing them on to the board of governors of the corporation.
