Mr. VITAL MALLETTE (Jacques Cartier):

(Translation) Mr. Chairman, I should like to see this vote carry without any further discussion. But in case the Minister of Public Works (Mr. Cardin) should be influenced by the eloquent pleas made by the hon. members for Broadview (Mr. Church) and Parkdale (Mr. Spence) on 'behalf of the city of Toronto, I wish to remind him of the existence in Quebec province of a large "village" called Montreal where several buildings belonging to the federal government are exempt from municipal taaxtion. I doubt whether the appeal of my two hon. friends will be heard beyond this chamber, but in case it is I wish to make the same request on behalf of the city of Montreal.

(Text) Mr. CLARKE (Rosedale): Mr. Chairman, as regards this resolution to provide $100,000 for Ottawa as compensation for fire protection and water services, while I am quite

Fisheries Act Amendment

in accord with the expenditure of this money, I do think there are other cities in Canada which should receive their relative proportion of public moneys expended.

Mr. VITAL MALLETTE (Jacques Cartier) (Translation):

Mr. Speaker, the committee on banking and commerce, of which I am a member, studied all these bills last year as well as in 1937. The house is aware that following prolonged deliberations and a careful study of the question the committee intended to ask the Minister of Finance (Mr. Dunning) to bring in a general bill applicable to this company as to all similar ones.

On those occasions we were chiefly preoccupied with the rights of the provinces, for among the experts heard by the committee were representatives of Ontario, of Quebec, of Alberta and also, I believe, of one of the maritime provinces. The committee was unanimous in wishing to safeguard provincial rights. In fact that is what prolonged the discussions of last year. I therefore endorse the views of the two hon. members who preceded me, particularly my hon. friend from Rosetown-Biggar (Mr. Coldwell) who is one of the most active members of the committee. Like him, I think we should either send the bill to the committee on banking and commerce or hold it until the Minister of Finance brings in a bill of general application.

Mr. MALLETTE:

Subsection 6 of section 236 of the criminal code has to do with the exceptions in favour of lotteries. One of these exceptions is found in paragraph (e), as follows:

(e) the Art Union of London, Great Britain, or the Art Union of Ireland.

This exception is now obsolete. However, all hon. members know that quite a few sweepstakes are now being held throughout Canada. It is the intention of the bill to repeal paragraph (e) and replace it by another which would permit the recognition of sweepstakes by the governments of the provinces, the benefits to go to universities and hospitals.

The bill, Mr. Speaker, speaks for itself.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
