Mr. Pelletier (Hochelaga):
Mr. Speaker, although I was not referring to his party, the hon. member stated his party respects provincial jurisdictions. I hope they also respect federal jurisdiction. I would indicate once more he does not seem to be well aware of the whole matter. We did not initiate the move that led to this conflict. If he looks at the facts, he will see that as regards that lower St. Lawrence territory the CRTC had already issued a broadcasting license to Mr. Dionne. It was only months later that the Quebec board, acting in our view outside the scope of its powers and jurisdiction, licensed another broadcaster. So the Quebec board went against the CRTC, legally empowered to issue licenses.
