Mr. Howe:

No. A feed mill in eastern Canada is a private institution. The owner of the mill does not have to accept any grain unless he wishes to.
That is what makes these eastern elevators entirely different from western public elevators which have to accept grain under the regulations prescribed under the Canada Grain Act.
He does not handle the public's grain. I do not know of any feed mill in eastern Canada that handles public grain.
The section was agreed to. I submit there is a very great question with regard to whether or not the minister is interpreting the Canada Grain Act and the Canadian Wheat Board Act properly. I submit he should re-examine his position in this regard very carefully and I suggest that ordinary eastern feed mills and elevators should be exempt or that the legislation should be declared to be not applicable to them.
