May 14, 1953

Mr. Cote (Verdun-La Salle):

Mr. Chairman, I want to join the hon. member for Ottawa East (Mr. Richard) in congratulating the hon. member for Labelle (Mr. Courtemanche) for the fairness he has shown in dealing with this question. In the course of his remarks, the hon. member said that "any receipt bearing the signature of a parish priest seems to be systematically rejected". I would like to draw his attention to that point. In my estimation, he overdid it a little.

According to the statement made by the Minister of National Revenue (Mr. McCann)

in this house, it is not a matter of refusing to recognize the charitable donations to our parishes, regardless of the religious denomination of the clergymen and of the faithful, but rather to check, in the simplest possible way, the nature of those donations mentioned in the receipts annexed to income tax returns.

Like the hon. member for Ottawa East, I most earnestly and sincerely hope that the minister will be able to set up a system of investigation better suited to administrative purposes, in order to avoid the unfortunate misunderstandings which exist now and to which the newspapers referred recently.

Perhaps it would be clearer if before the words "the amount of such earnings" the words "shall be" were added.
