Mr. Browne (Vancouver-Kingsway):

Mr. Chairman, I just want to say this. When we hear the hon. member for Vancouver East stand up here and talk about the rights of people, after his party used a technical procedure of the house yesterday to deprive individuals of rights that they are guaranteed under the laws of this country, I do not think it goes down very well.

Mr. Browne (Vancouver-Kingsway):

Mr. Chairman, I think I must rise after the statement made by the hon. member for Vancouver East, because in the province of British Columbia we have Canadian Pacific Airlines employing about 2,500 people; in fact, it provides one of the largest payrolls in the province of British Columbia. I rather gathered from the remarks of the hon. member for Vancouver East that he felt Trans-Canada Air Lines should have a complete monopoly in air transportation. I certainly could not support any such view.

In so far as pioneering is concerned, the polar route to Europe was pioneered by Canadian Pacific Airlines and they have provided a good deal of the service and a lot of jobs for people in British Columbia. They provide a large amount in taxes to the treasury of this country. Any suggestion that T.C.A. should have a complete monopoly certainly would not be supported by the people of my riding.

Mr. Browne (Vancouver-Kingsway):

Would the Minister of Finance permit a question? Am I correct in assuming that that particular publication would have been printed at public expense, unlike the document that is presently being discussed?

Mr. Browne (Vancouver-Kingsway):

On a

point of order, Mr. Chairman, surely the business of the house at the present time does not justify the hon. member getting up and arguing against the bill of rights which was properly passed by this house and badly needed by the country after the Liberal administration.

Mr. Browne (Vancouver-Kingsway):

I just wanted to say that I was very pleased to hear the minister's statement that it was not the intention of the government to rush into any legislation arising out of the royal commission report.
