We are not dealing with them: we are speaking of Canadian eggs, laid by Canadian hens. I am not speaking about Chinese eggs, it is you who. go outside of Canada for your arguments. We stay at home.

Mr. VERVILLE:

Your answer is so intelligent that it pleases me. Keep on repeating it throughout the session.

-if our farmers are obliged after eight months of an administration that was going to make them all rich-that is what you promised-to sell their produce for the lowest prices obtained since before 1914?

Mr. Speaker, in so far as the farmers are concerned, they cannot be satisfied with the present administration because this government promised to relieve them of all their ills and instead of that they have added the further pain of profound disappointment.

Mr. LaVERGNE: They are not angry;

they went to war.
