Hon. P. J. A. CARDIN (Minister of Marine and Fisheries):

That broadcasting station has not yet been opened because we have not received the equipment. We did not buy the equipment because no information had come to us that the fishermen were ready to instal receiving sets on their vessels. But lately representations have been made by the fishermen that they are ready to instal receiving sets on their vessels. We have therefore ordered the necessary equipment for that station, and as soon as that equipment is received and installed we will start broadcasting weather conditions from that station.
