think it represents what he wanted. He went there as a lion but he came out as a lamb. May I remind him of what Mr. William Har-court said to Lord Salisbury: "If you are to come out as a lamb it is better not to begin operations roaring and lashing your tail as a lion."
Another apparent benefit contained in the treaty is the provision that Canadian surcharges will be removed when financial conditions permit. When we consider the loss of revenue that has resulted from the tariff policies of this government, this provision is really a joke.
I am afraid my time is passing rapidly, but I should like to say a word with regard to the effect of this treaty on international trade. As we all know, unemployment is raging throughout the country. Millions of people have no work. Production in all countries has decreased by half or by a very large percentage at least. Ships are idle in world ports. Railway transportation is suffering, as we all know in this country. National budgets are being brought in showing heavy deficits. Fourteen nations in the world have defaulted the payment of interest on their bonds, and economists everywhere attribute this condition to the barriers that have been put in the way of trade between the nations of the world.
