Mr. FRASER (Cariboo):

The minister has just indicated that the commission proposes to construct a high-powered station in Vancouver. As briefly as possible I should like to outline the situation in British Columbia. Vancouver and its immediate environments on the lower mainland is situated in the southwest corner of the province and I believe this is one of the reasons why we have such unsatisfactory service. There are six private stations operating in Vancouver and even though -the city and its immediate surroundings contains two-thirds of the population of the province I believe it has pretty fair service at the present time. The government should consider carefully before it decides to construct another high-powered station in Vancouver. The minister should consider if it would not be for the general benefit of the outlying sections of the province to locate such a station at a more central point than the city of Vancouver. The reception received by points in the interior of the province is exceedingly unsatisfactory and the construction of a high-powered station in Vancouver will not improve the situation. One quarter of the power of such a station will go out over the Pacific ocean while another quarter will go south across the line where the American people are well served with their own stations. The people in the interior of the province have no reception at all except when they turn on the American stations. The general complaint throughout the province is that they can only get reception from the American stations. -I therefore appeal to the minister to have this situation looked into carefully and to see whether a 'better location could not be secured than the city of Vancouver.

(Mr. J. A. Fraser.]

Mr. FRASER (Cariboo):

This increased tax covers 1934 as well as 1935. To that extent is it not a further duplication? The gold producers have already paid the tax and you are going back and making this increased tax apply to 1934 income. At any rate, that is my interpretation of this provision.
