June 3, 1969

Mr. Garland (Bow River):

Even the right to work is denied them.

Then Mr. Woodsworth quoted a passage which I would be quite happy to read, if necessary. It is a quotation from the Vancouver Province suggesting that this is the kind of thing that could happen, but Mr. Woodsworth gives his own comment on that quotation and says:

We in our group are out to try to bring about the end in view by peaceful and orderly methods.

Mr. Woodsworth went out of his way in that speech to assert the position he always took-some of us know it very well because of our contact with him-namely, that violence and force were not weapons to be used. If ever there was a man in this house who believed in non-violence, it was J. S. Woodsworth. For it to be suggested that there was any similarity between the things he stood for and communism is, I suggest, a gross distortion of the position taken in this house by one of the finest men who ever graced the parliament of Canada.

Mr. Garland:

Mr. Speaker, the question posed by the Leader of the Opposition is in four parts and I should like to reply as follows. I would like to point out first that the 11 per cent tax on building materials and production machinery in effect between June 13 and July 8, 1963, was not payable to national revenue until July 31 in respect of sales made from June 14 to June 30, and not payable until August 31 in the case of sales made between July 1 and July 8. Domestic manufacturers and licensed wholesalers, therefore did not need to claim for a refund from the department but made refunds or issued credits on their own initiative or at the request of their customers. These credits are audited by the department in the normal course of operations.

In the case of importations, the 11 per cent tax having been payable at the time of importations, refunds were claimed from the department by the importers for the difference in rate following the July 8 amendment to the resolution.

I should like to be able to provide specific answers to the balance of the question, but on

Mr. Garland:

I cannot, because I do not know what statements the local manager may have made. However, I can tell the hon. member that the corporation advises me no foreclosure action has been taken, and I suggested that none be taken until there is a full opportunity to pursue the matter.
