FEED GRAIN

MOVEMENTS FROM THE WEST-STORAGE FOR NEXT SEASON


On the orders of the day:


LIB

Hervé-Edgar Brunelle

Liberal

Mr. H. E. BRUNELLE (Champlain):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to ask a question of the Minister of Agriculture concerning a matter of some urgency. What is being done to assist eastern farmers in obtaining from the west the necessary supplies of feed grains, of which there seems to be a scarcity?

James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Hon. J. G. GARDINER (Minister of Agriculture) :

A number of inquiries have come in from eastern Canada having to do with the possibility of obtaining feed grains with which to finish live stock. There has been some difficulty getting feed grain moved from the west to the east. Those who make the inquiries would seem to have the opinion that there is a shortage somewhere. There is a vast quantity of feed grain in Canada that may be moved to the areas in which it is required. The difficulty is one of obtaining cars with which to move it. We have been accustomed to moving feed grain east, on the lakes, during the summer months, and having it stored in storage warehouses in Toronto and elsewhere for use in the winter months. That was not done to the same extent last year as in preceding years, possibly partly because the government pays the freight. The farmers are compelled to depend upon getting their feed in carload shipments from Fort William in the winter months. The hard winter with its heavy snow-falls created difficulties in moving the feed, but arrangements have been made with the railway companies to get as many cars as possible for that purpose.

There seems also to be the view that grain is being allowed to go to the United States, rather than to feeders in eastern Canada. That is scarcely true either. Feeders in the United States are having at least as much difficulty in having grain shipped into the United States as is being experienced by eastern Canadian farmers in having the grain shipped to eastern Canada. The reason is a shortage of cars on both sides of the boundary line.

An effort is being made at the present time to take care of the situation until such time as boats begin to move on the lakes. I should like to emphasize the importance of farmers and dealers, immediately that happens, making provision this summer for storing as much feed as they can during the summer months. There is a great supply of good feed grain available to be moved in the summer from the west, and if it is stored on farms or other storage warehouses throughout eastern Canada before close

[Mr Shaw.]

of navigation it will be helpful in producing results next year. Every possible effort, including a preference in movement east, is being made, and we are getting assistance from the United States to secure cars from that country to move grain south without interfering with the facilities necessary to move grain east.
