Mr. COLDWELL:

The hon. member for Waterloo South (Mr. Homuth) objects to that statement, but all you have to do is to price an automobile in ordinary times in this country and in the United States and you will find that the tariff is in the price of the automobile that one buys in Canada whether the car is made in Canada or not. Take radios for example. I gave a good example here before Christmas of a little radio which I knew cost $96 in the United States and which I found in one of the large jewelry stores in this city priced at $197 plus tax.
