Mr. REID:

I do not know. I understand that some years ago the Canadian government attempted to declare the waters of Hecate strait as Canadian .waters for the purposes of control. Apparently in those days we were a little afraid to take a bold stand, and the matter was dropped. However, it is my opinion that if we had then declared these waters to be Canadian waters, no country would seriously dispute our stand.
