Mr. Hardie:

Not just now, Rudolph; I will deal with them later. I feel, Mr. Chairman, that every trapper is a farmer. He traps in his area just as a farmer works his land and a fruit grower works his trees. He takes off a certain amount of crop each year and leaves the breeding stock to take care of his needs for the next year. If sheep and the wool of sheep are to come under this bill, then I feel that a fur-bearing animal should also come under its provisions. I would therefore move an amendment in the following words:
That after the word "sheep" in subclause (a) (i) of clause 2, the words "and fur-bearing animals" be added.

Topic:   AGRICULTURE
Subtopic:   MEASURE TO PROVIDE GUARANTEED PRICES FOR CERTAIN COMMODITIES, ETC.
