James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

Mr. GARDINER:

I can quite understand that where an animal valued at from $200 to $300 is slaughtered and the owner receives no more than $150, there would be cause for complaint. However, the department has always taken the position that where an individual allows tuberculosis to develop in his herd he should assume some responsibility. The limit of compensation has been set at $150, and it has been found over many years that this is accepted fairly generally as liberal compensation.
