We did not need to give nickels; the government provided employment for all. Even the tobacco growers down in Essex were able to get along without relief, the same men for whom the hon. member is pleading so hard to-day. This government was going to blast its way into the markets of the world, but my hon. friend is to-day asking for relief for those very men who were to benefit from the policies of the government. Are you proud and pleased with your record? Hon. gentlemen on the back benches opposite will rush to the defence of the government. They are ready to advocate relief camps and other forms of unemployment relief, notwithstanding the fact that they declared solemnly to the electors that they would not inaugurate such things. They are welcome to all the comfort they can get. That is all I have to say in connection with this matter.
deal with it in exactly the same way as the Liberal government dealt with it in 1922. I would bring about the same era of prosperity which was brought about in 1922 by the application of Liberal policies. That is the way I would deal with it, not by trying to blast my way into the markets of the world and shutting the gates to all whc wanted to get into Canada. The government's policies have been on trial for four years and each year the conditions have become worse than they were in the previous year. The one man of those who occupy the front benches opposite for whom I am sorry is the Minister of Finance (Mr. Rhodes). He has to try to raise revenues while the policies inaugurated by the present government are being carried out. He has made a dismal failure of it and is bound to make a dismal failure so long as these policies are followed.
