Unionist

Mr. A. K. MACLEAN:

The Bill is to enable Canadian registered shipping operating between the province of British Columbia and American ports as far south as San Francisco, and sailing as far north as Alaska, to be relieved of pilotage. We are *simply giving the shipping owned in British Columbia the same relief that years ago was given to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and later to Quebec and Ontario shipping. As a matter of fact the law has been evaded for many years in British Columbia, and the class of shipping to which this Bill refers has not paid any pilotage.

Topic:   PACIFIC COAST PILOTAGE.
