Mr. KNOWLES.

That is two against one, anybody else? My hon. friend will have to admit that, I am right when I say that these people did not go on the market and buy land at $1 an acre. I will admit that under the grazing lease the holder can buy a small amount of land for home and corral purposes, but that is different from going on the market and buying outright. I am glad my hon. friend from North Toronto (Mr. Poster) spoke witli reference to that McGregor & Hitchcock lease. The hon. member for East Grey (Mr. Sproule) spoke of the Robbins Irrigation Company.
