Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Knowles:

What does the minister mean by "all proper and reasonable steps"? Suppose you have a case where someone is hurt in an automobile accident in another province and the victim, shall we say, is transported to his home province and hospitalized there. Does the home province have to take legal action in the other province? What kind of an undertaking is necessary on the part of the province under the terms of this clause before the agreement is valid?
The minister says this is comparable to what is in the provincial legislation. I believe it is in the legislation of British Columbia, but I am not sure that it is in the legislation of Saskatchewan where you have, as a companion to this, a system of automobile insurance which covers everyone.
