Mr. D. W. WARNER (Strathcona):
Mr. Speaker, I realize that this is not a proper time of night to commence a long speech, but I think we are debating something which it is worth our while staying all night in order to decide rightly. The House seems to be very much divided; the different groups are broken. We are going to do very much as we please in this matter, judging by the way hon. members are talking all over the Chamber, some for and some against in every group. Consequently I feel quite at home in taking my stand in opposition to my leader (Mr. Crerar) in this group. I feel I am justified in doing so. If he had put in as many years milking cows, and if he knew the difficulty in connection with this work as well as I do, I do not think he would have made the kind of speech he delivered. I notice that most of the gentlemen who are talking here to-night in opposition to this resolution are not the men who take the milk pail and milk the cows. I have seen the difficulties of the dairy business right from the beginning of my business career. I know that it has had a hard time. I know, at the same time, that those who are opposed to this resolution are opposed to it from an honest conviction. At least, that is my belief. But, Mr. Speaker, I can hardly agree with them in the fine, dielicabe point they raise regarding the difference between asking for a compulsory wheat board and supporting the motion for the abolition of oleomargarine.
