Mr. T. H. Goode (Burnaby-Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, may I address a question to the Minister of Public Works. Has the minister approved the application of the provincial government of British Columbia under the Navigable Waters Protection Act for permission to construct the Deas island tunnel under the Fraser river? If so, what is to be the depth of water at extreme low. tide above the tunnel and over what width of the channel?

Mr. T. H. Goode (Burnaby-Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, in 1951 I stood in my place in this house and gave my impression of what the people of Burnaby would think of the Trans Mountain Oil Pipe Line Company. Perhaps it was not done very well, but it was loud at the time.

What seems strange to me now is the fact that not one hon. gentleman from the C.C.F. group or from the Social Credit ranks rose in his place to support me. At that time I argued that the Trans Mountain Oil Pipe Line Company had told this house, through the appropriate committee, that it would not sell gasoline or oil through a pipe line to the United States. I brought facts into the house which proved beyond any reasonable doubt that the pipe-line company had told a committee of this house that they would not ship oil to the United States through a pipe line. At that time I said the company had asked the board of transport commissioners to allow them to operate a 24-inch pipe line from South Sumas, British Columbia, to the border to provide oil to a refinery in Ferndale, Washington.

These facts were put on record in this house in the course of a 40-minute speech. In that speech I did the best I could, but not one hon. member, except the hon. member for Kootenay West (Mr. Herridge) who spoke, I believe, for two minutes, supported me in that argument. Now, all of a sudden, because the company is a success in western Canada, these gentlemen rise in their might and say what should have been done years ago.

Mr. Goode:

You should not be here now. On top of that, the hon. gentleman from Burnaby-Coquitlam expecting he could take political advantage from my absence, mentioned in his speech that I was not sitting in my place-

Then, Mr. Speaker, I apologize to the hon. member. I was informed by an hon. member that he had said that.
