Robert Weir (Minister of Agriculture)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. WEIR (Melfort):

We tried out the
policy of regional fairs at first by having one fair in each province and the results were satisfactory. The following year we allotted the grant to a different fair in each province. The satisfaction expressed especially by farmers was such that last year we offered regional grants to all so-called class B fairs except in cases where such interfered with provincial plans. As I said before the farmers felt that the fairs had had a very good effect in stimulating people other than professional show people to exhibit.
