CON

Alexander James Anderson

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. ANDERSON:

I am speaking of Ontario, and I do not think I am very far out. The act is not needed and not wanted by a very large majority in Ontario. It may be needed in certain other provinces, but if the western provinces had been fortunate in the last eight years in having as fair a crop as Ontario has had we would never have heard of it from them. There are many in western Canada who are not taking advantage of 'this act, because they dislike to appear in a role which has the appearance of dishonesty. There are many in the western provinces taking advantage of that act, just as in Ontario, simply because of their own inefficiency and dishonesty.
