Mr. M. J. COLDWELL (Rosetown-Biggar):

May I just say this one word? This matter should be investigated. I have just come back from that area, and some ugly stories are being told of the destruction not only of equipment of this type but of tractors, bulldozers and all kinds of things. As this dispatch states, the onus has been placed on Canada because of our refusal to allow these goods to remain here because no duty was paid, and the cost of shipping them out of the country being too great. That is the story that is told, and I think it should be investigated.
