That is perfectly true. He signed the report, and he also referred to this obsession about equalization. How he reconciled that is not for me to say. Apparently it was not a difficult task, and I do not presume it was. There is one other matter to which I should like to draw attention with respect to equalization, and I think this is the 94699-291
classic statement of the year. If you will look at page 124 of the report you will find this statement half way down the page:
The maritime provinces said that they did not "subscribe to or support so-called equalization of freight rates" and stated "rate equalization is impossible of achievement."
That is on page 124, and on the very next page-
