Mr. St. Laurent (Quebec East):

The government has placed a proposal before the house and hopes it will be adopted in time to be effective. If it is, of course there would be no other proposal at this time for the construction of that pipe line that would be considered because no such proposal could be implemented without appropriate legislation in that regard being adopted by parliament, and I am quite sure, after the experience of the last couple of weeks, that it would not be possible to have any other legislation adopted in time to make it possible to have the first leg from Alberta to Winnipeg constructed during this construction season.
