Thank you; I am pleased to be advised by the Minister of Agriculture that this scheme is broad enough to cover the full program as placed before him by the three premiers in their recent conference on this subject. I take it from the minister's statement that it will be only a matter of years until our total marshlands will once again be properly protected so as to give us an opportunity to cultivate on those lands produce which will be helpful to our province.
I have endeavoured to speak as briefly as possible, so as to permit other maritime members, if they so desire, to join with me in extending thanks to the minister. Once again I thank the government and particularly the Minister of Agriculture for having brought this legislation before the house.
