Mr. Knight:

Mr. Chairman, I approve of the bill. I should like consideration to be given to the tax load borne by communities smaller than Winnipeg or Toronto. I am referring to places like Weyburn. We should examine some of the cost factors involved in this legislation.
In the last 50 minutes I have heard many good questions asked, but have not heard one member say he opposes this bill. Within the last ten days the Federation of Mayors and Municipalities has told us to pass this bill. Considering the present situation of this parliament and the prospect which may arise in the coming weeks, I suggest that this bill should pass. Unless the next speaker says he opposes the bill, I suggest we should pass it. Of course, if someone opposes it we should be prepared to listen to him.
