The hon. member for Fraser Valley, rightly I believe, brought to the attention of the house an emergency situation which exists at the present time, and I believe he had in mind the question whether anything could be done to help the people concerned in this emergency. However, I would ask hon. members who are discussing that situation in British Columbia to confine their remarks to the emergency, and as soon as they have finished with that we shall go on with the resolution which is before us. I think hon. members should try to confine their
Reclamation of Marshlands

remarks to the situation as described by the hon. member for Fraser Valley.
