I have heard about the dodo bird before. Many of these people, if they could harbour their boats, would erect summer homes of no mean proportion, and of this I have been assured. We should have a dominion tourist commission or the tourist
industry under a senior minister of the crown to give the necessary support and cooperation the industry warrants.
In closing, Mr. Speaker, I should like to say first, that I should like to learn the French language. I like your pleasant accent and, if I could, I would go down among your compatriots and teach them to sing, "I am beginning to see the light."
I earnestly hope that when the dominion-provincial conference again convenes the tourist industry will be a subject of major consideration, that the dominion and the provinces will correlate their activities so that we may take advantage of all that we have so much of an abundance to offer, and I can assure my hon. friends to the right of you, Mr. Speaker, that if the present government does the best it can possibly do, the Progressive Conservative government will finish the job after the next general election.
On motion of Mr. Gibson (Comox-AIberni) the debate was adjourned.
