Major James William Coldwell

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Big-gar):

Representing as I do a large grain
producing constituency in western Canada, I wish to concur in the remarks just made by the preceding speakers, the hon. member for Qu'Appelle (Mr. Perley) and the hon. member for Portage la Prairie (Mr. Leader),

but particularly would I impress upon the government the fact that in western Canada there is a desire that the government shall make an unqualified pronouncement in favour of continuing a wheat board, and setting an adequate price for wheat and other grains. That is the issue which is engaging the minds of the producers of western Canada at the present time, and I hope this will be done at no far distant date.
