December 6, 1949

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

Mr. Chairman, I shall speak briefly, because no one has spoken today from the west. I believe someone from the west coast should speak on these estimates. We are proud of the minister who comes from our province. This is one example where a businessman is doing a good job. With an industry controlling the large amount of money represented by the fishermen on the east and west coasts, we believe it is highly satisfactory to have a businessman at the head of the department, and that he is likely to do a more satisfactory job than could be done by a theorist. I think we all recognize that the minister has done a wonderful job in running his department. I think his accomplishments have been marvellous for a comparatively new minister.

The fishing industry which I represent on the west coast is happy over the progress that has been made. Some years ago they had not a great deal of confidence in the department. There are in my constituency some 2,000 fishermen who are centred around one of the largest canning factories in the world. These men now leave for the fishing grounds with the feeling that they are being looked after by the department. I go along with the hon. member for Newfoundland in saying that if the minister and the department are given time they will solve the difficulties of the industry in that province.

Mr. Goode:

The hon. member for Van-couver-Quadra will please understand he is not speaking for the member for Burnaby-Richmond. I raise that point of order. He mentioned something about Liberal members

not speaking for their province. I will speak for my province when the times comes, and any time the occasion arises.

November 18, 1949

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

Mr. Speaker, I did not intend to enter this debate, even though members from British Columbia should be more interested than any others. However, the other day I noticed a dispatch in the Vancouver Sun which said:

There was protest again at the filibuster on debate to incorporate the Alberta Natural Gas Company, which hopes to pipe natural gas from Alberta to British Columbia and the northwestern United States.

Then it goes on to say that the hon. member for Parkdale (Mr. Hunter) had asked for fair play in this debate. After reading that, after listening to hon. members debate the matter, and after hearing a minister of the crown take part in the discussion, I determined to find out something about it, not only to satisfy my own curiosity but perhaps for the good of my own riding. I thought perhaps there was some difference between the bills which were presented to this house last session and the present bill. So I looked up Hansard for April 29, 1949, and found that the debate was somewhat less than intense. Hansard says, under the heading "Private Bills":
