Daniel Roland Michener (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Speaker:

Order. Does the hon. member suggest that pulpwood comes under the bill? I have been looking at the bill, and while it might be called an agricultural product, I was wondering whether or not he did consider the bill related to pulpwood.

Mr. Rowe:

On a point of order, I would suggest that it is grown from the soil. In many districts in Canada it is part of the crop on marginal farms. Many farmers in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec make more money out of pulpwood than they do from their dairy herds.

Mr. Speaker:

I did not want to divert the hon. member because it is his maiden speech, but it is approximately ten o'clock, and I thought he might consider that point before he resumes.

Mr. Baskin:

I can finish in about two more minutes. Much of this has gone to the national revenue of Canada, and 75 per cent of it has gone to workmen other than farmers.

Mr. Baskin:

You will not be here next time to give anything to the Hansard reporter. Indirectly, this forgotten branch of Canadian farmland production has contributed much to the economy of this great country. Mr. Speaker, I shall not burden you longer but I must say that we have had a change in government. I know we have had a change of heart. Canada now has a government that is vitally concerned with the problems of the ordinary citizen, and has shown its determination to help him. I know that the minister, realizing these facts, will give some thought and consideration to this little

publicized phase of agriculture which is so important and so vital, not only to my own constituency but to many others throughout this land. I know this is a government that is striving, and will continue to strive, to give a square deal to all.

May I call it ten o'clock, Mr. Speaker?

I wonder if the leader would not give some indication this evening as to what the business of the house is likely to be when we reconvene.
