The matter is serious. When we consider the future I think we must realize that now is the time for us to declare to other countries that these waters are Canadian. We should also be ready to cooperate with the United States government, who have declared that the waters contiguous to Alaska will be open to fishing only to United States fishermen. I wanted to bring these matters to the. attention of the minister so that he may consider them between sessions. I urge that Canada cooperate with the United States and that we follow their example.
