Not now. I am coming to my conclusion and I have only a few more words to say. You may do so when I am finished.
In my opinion, the only way to act in the matter was to make an inquiry, as was done, and besides to ask the lumber companies to increase the prices paid to farmers, prices which are ridiculously low when compared with the price of paper and those companies' financial statements. There is nothing we can do now but wait for the result of that investigation, which will be properly carried out, I am sure.
Before resuming my seat, I beg the government to do everything in its power to tackle the agricultural problem prevailing throughout the country, thereby solving the economic problem of all Canadians.
