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

Mr. Argue:

He travelled to such an extent that his expenses were twice as high as those [DOT]of any other cabinet minister. With all this travelling I do not know where he went because he seemed to spend nearly all his time in Ottawa or the province of Saskatchewan. However, in spite of his travelling apparently he has failed to discover that Canada's agricultural policies are among the poorest of any nation anywhere in the world. Only Canada fails to provide a system of adequate support prices. Where was the Minister of Agriculture last fall? I do not think he was in Ottawa too often.
