Mr. MUNN:

It is recognized that Vancouver is the most central point in British Columbia as regards population, and I would impress on the minister the advisability when the station is built of having it sufficiently strong and sufficiently high powered that interior points will be taken care of, especially in tihe riding of Cariboo, from which my hon. friend comes.

Mr. A. E. MUNN (Vancouver North):

Mr. Speaker, I do not intend to discuss the bill in detail, because the hon. member for New Westminster (Mr. Reid) has covered the ground thoroughly. First may I compliment the hon. member upon his gallant fight for the fishermen. I know that he has no personal gain in mind, he is simply fighting for

the individual and against the vested interests. He is thoroughly familiar with the situation in his constituency, and undoubtedly knows more about conditions at that point than I do.

I happened to be a member of the committee, and as such I was greatly disappointed to note that the committee chose to reject the bill. It is only in recent years that conditions in the territory in question have been different. I say the hon. member is not asking for too much, and I would voice my plea to have the matter returned to the committee. Let us in some way obtain evidence from the men affected, because we know there are thousands of them. I would plead with hon. members to take a fair minded view and, if necessary, to forget politics. I think we should endeavour to help a man who needs assistance and hon. members should consent to the request of the hon. member for New Westminster that this bill be sent back to the committee.

Mr. A. E. MUNN (Vancouver North):

I have a question I would like to direct to the Minister of Railways. As a member of the house I have been advocating for years that the capital structure of the Canadian National Railways should be adjusted. The auditors have sent in a special report on the Canadian National and I understand that copies are available only to members of the special committee. As a member of the house I and perhaps others would like to have a copy of this report. Would it be possible for us to get copies?

Mr. MUNN:

Coming back to Stanley park, and the question asked by the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Mackenzie), did I understand the minister to say that they had salvaged $40,000 worth of material in clearing up the park?
