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. J. F. Browne (Vancouver-ICingsway):

I wonder if the minister could tell us what has been the reaction from British Columbia in regard to this cost sharing program.

Mr. J. F. Browne (Vancouver-Kingsway):

Mr. Speaker, immediately before the vote was taken I had raised a question of privilege regarding a threat which had been made to the members of this house by the hon. member for Timiskaming, as found at page 2437 of Hansard. As I pointed out and informed the house at that time, the threat was that if we did not pass the bill then before us, no more divorces would pass parliament this session. I suggest that is an attempt to deny individual Canadians their rights under the constitution of this country and I suggest that it is the responsibility of members of parliament to protect those rights.
