Mr. ROSS (St. Paul's):
And what do we pay for lobster? We pay a dollar a pound, or somewhere in that vicinity. Can we not get lobster cheaper than that? What is the reason for the spread beween two cents and twenty cents on a pound of halibut or haddock? The people of Ontario do not receive any assistance from the dominion government so far as fisheries are concerned,
and we would like to be told why the fishermen do not receive a better price for their fish.
At one o'clock the committee took recess.
The committee resumed at three o'clock.
