RA

Charles-Arthur Gauthier

Ralliement Créditiste

Mr. Gauthier:

Mr. Speaker, the speaker who just resumed his seat said that I have broken an agreement. I think that the first one to break up an agreement is the minister and I will give my consent on the understanding that the minister accepts our request, that is the request of farmers.
If the minister agrees tonight to grant $5.10 to farmers, especially by not increasing taxes, I am ready for unanimous consent and I will give my consent right away. But something new occurred tonight, the minister did not move from his seat and has not changed an iota to his dairy policy. Because of that, Mr. Chairman, I honestly cannot-I am speaking sincerely-give my consent.
