Mr. STEWART (Argenteuil):
Dr. Tory was employed by the government to make a study of rural credits: he made a report, and in addition gave evidence before the committee on Agriculture. The suggestion that the federal government should go into the rural credits scheme on their own responsibility would meet with some opposition from provinces that are carrying on schemes of their own. ^In fact, that became evident to the government when this matter was being discussed, and the government thought it well to come to the assistance of those provinces who are desirous of getting help financially and who have rural credit schemes in operation.
