Mr. Chairman, I should like to refer specially to the word "Atlantic" in clause 3, subclause 1. Clause 2(d) defines "power project" in this way:
"Power project" means . . . facilities for the control and transmission of electric energy, the site of any such facilities, and land, water, rights to use water, buildings, works, machinery, installations, materials, transmission lines, furnishings, equipment, construction plant, stores, and supplies acquired, constructed or used or adapted for or in connection with any such facilities.
I am wondering now whether it is the purpose of the bill to restrict the application to the Atlantic provinces in order to stop the province of British Columbia from taking advantage of this legislation in the development of the Columbia river project.
