Hazen Robert Argue

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Argue:

I will prove it right now by quoting the hon. member for Acadia who gave the Social Credit position on agriculture in the budget debate, as reported at page 3626 of Hansard, as follows:
In this group we have been advocating a two-price system for a number of years; that is, that the domestic market for farm products should be supported at 100 per cent of parity and that farm exports should be sold at the best prices obtainable in the international market, preferably under international agreement but supported by a reasonable support price.
That is the policy.
