Mr. BARIBEAU (Translation):

Our farmers have heavy burdens to bear, and if the former government succeeded in reducing the national debt as stated by the hon. member for Sherbrooke (Mr. Howard), it was perhaps, at the expense of our farming classes, for we note that the farmers are those who suffer the most in the present crisis, that their properties are mortgaged, that they have had to resort to promissory notes and contracted obligations which date back to the former regime.

Mr. BARIBEAU (Translation):

The farmers realized this situation and proved it eloquently on July 28, 1930. Do they now regret having acted so energetically against their oppressors? They certainly do not regret the New Zealand treaty, nor the generosities of the former government towards the United States, nor the former tariff which afforded very little protection and was the ca-use of their distress. Now, under the impulse of the new policy, equilibrium will be restored, thus dissipating the nerve wrecking nightmares of a year of depression. I made the suggestion, a few moments ago, to those who will represent us at the Imperial conference which is being held in Ottawa-a great honour for Canada- to do everything possible in order to obtain a preference on newsprint and pulp so as to help our working Classes. I shall further add that such a preference would tend besides to aid numerous farmers, for most of them are owners of woodlots, and the sale of their wood would allow them to realize appreciable profits. We must protect our industries, and farming, being the main industry of this country, deserves the greatest protection.

...per day, it does not strike him that for all the work performed by the Dominion government, the wood was cut by our farmers, we had the stone drawn, our blacksmiths were given work, we also found work for all those who had a trade in each locality, and the amounts thus disbursed do not appear under the item "hours", however these payments helped numerous

workmen. Dominion
