March 29, 1945 (19th Parliament, 6th Session)


Robert Fair

Social Credit


I want to associate myself with the hon. members who have already spoken on this question. I do not think it is necessary to go into it in detail, because in 1942, when the budget was discussed, I placed before the house several arguments to which proper consideration has not yet been given. The figures quoted by the minister are very fine in theory, but in practice, when it comes to making good the farmers' losses, I do not think they are any good whatever. Until the farming industry is placed on a proper and sound basis we are going to have inequalities, injustices and dissatisfaction. I want to emphasize particularly that because of our taxation structure, as well as other things, farm production is being restricted to a very great extent.
