Mr. Robinson (Simcoe Easi):

Will the hon. member permit a question? Does he not agree that if there is another war one of these pipe lines will be a major asset to help Canada in that war?

Mr. W. A. Robinson (Simcoe East):

I am

afraid that I have not previously given any explanation of this bill. I thought that that was unnecessary because, in the debate on the over-all pipe line bill, it was abundantly clear that this bill was of paramount importance to the people of this country. Every hon. member realizes that as the first stage of their development the sponsors of this bill intend to construct a pipe line from Edmonton to Regina. I feel that every hon. member believes that this is an important national development which deserves the favourable consideration of the house.

At this late stage of the session and of this parliament I do not intend to indulge in any repartee with the hon. member for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Young) as to the relative merits of private enterprise and public ownership. I am sure that most hon. members realize that this bill will have a good effect upon the Dominion of Canada, and I hope that at this late hour we may get ahead with it without any further delay.
