Mr. Drew:

This bill does not meet the situation because the minister knows perfectly well that at this time there is already double taxation in some of these fields. He knows that it has been made clear that under these arrangements it is certain that there will be further double taxation. My point is that these fields are fields in which the provinces have just as high a moral right and the governments of the provinces, within the realm of their own constitutional jurisdiction, have just as much right to be recognized in their ability to determine what is needed as has the federal government itself.
