Mr. Fulford:

Before this item passes, Mr. Chairman, I want to make one short observation. I wonder whether the minister noticed in last night's Ottawa Journal an advertisement published by the Progressive Conservative party of Canada. In case he missed it, I should like to point out that the advertisement is a facsimile of the short income tax form, 1952, but the facsimile is eclipsed by the large, bold words:
For a change be Conservative . . . not Liberal, with your own money!
Strangely enough, about the only part of the facsimile not overshadowed by the words just quoted is this:
Your old age security tax for 1953 and subsequent years is 2 per cent of taxable income . . .
And so on. I trust that this advertisement does not demonstrate the attitude of our Conservative friends toward social security generally: "For a change be Conservative, not Liberal, with your own money".
