There were two questions I asked this morning which I should like the Postmaster General to answer. Is "Richmond, British Columbia" an official address, and what are the intentions of the department with regard to a new building in South Burnaby?

Mr. Goode:

Mr. Chairman, I am not going to take up much time just now because I am going to wait until I have a look at the bill. All hon. members have endorsed the actions of the Minister of Fisheries in connection with this matter. The people of my constituency are perhaps the most concerned as we have the greatest collection of fisheries there are in the country, the largest fish cannery in the commonwealth as well as the greatest number of fishermen in Canada.

We have heard about the gill netters on the Fraser river and their problems in getting outside coastal waters to catch fish, and I suppose I have made as many representations to the minister with regard to that as anyone in this house. But what I want to say today, Mr. Chairman, is that although the minister in his introductory remarks gave the credit for this great step forward to the Pacific salmon fisheries commission, I doubt whether at any time in the history of this house any minister has introduced as many forward looking proposals over a number of years as has the present Minister of Fisheries; and I think that what he has been able to do for the fishermen of British Columbia and elsewhere is also a reflection of the position of Canada in international affairs, because I doubt whether 20 or 25 years ago Canada would have received the consideration which the Minister of Fisheries has been able to obtain in relation to this protocol.

I think the fishermen of British Columbia will approve what is being done. It means that there will be more money going into my riding; that retail merchants will receive increased income, and that there will be greater prosperity in the greatest fishing community in Canada. I rise, now, only in order to reflect my thinking with regard to what the Minister of Fisheries has done. He is a young minister who is representing Canada in a most effective way, not only in this case but in many others, and one who has proved a true friend to the fishermen and a true friend to the fishing industry, these being two different things. He compromises in his views with regard to the gill netters on the river, and also takes into consideration the export potentialities of the great industry represented in my riding. And on behalf of the fishermen of Burnaby-Richmond, who compose the majority of the fishermen of British Columbia, I wish to thank the minister for what he has done.
