Mr. McMILLAN:

I have shown conclusively that notwithstanding the remarks of the hon. leader of the opposition the party opposite have increased the duties two and one-half times more than has this government. There is no doubt that the Prime Minister and his cabinet in introducing the present budget have taken the steps they should have taken in order to represent the feeling of the great majority of Canadian electors.

Mr. McMILLAN:

It is the first duty of

any government to correctly interpret the enlightened sentiment of the Canadian people. There is no question of doubt but that he has represented the sentiment of the Canadian people, and the best proof that this budget is good is the manner in which it has been received throughout the country and the whine which it has occasioned from the opposition. It seems to me that no budget would be right if it did not bring out that whining disposition of hon. gentlemen of the opposition. Therefore, in conclusion let me say that I thank them for having presented their part of the budget.

I have the honour to represent in this house the best onion growers in the Dominion of Canada, and I doubt if there is an acre of onions grown in the riding represented by the hon. member for South Huron. With regard to the reference which the hon. gentleman made to the mammoth Conservative meeting in western Ontario on Friday last, I want to tell him that it spells ruin for every Liberal member in western Ontario.
