Mr. FOSTER.

I think that makes it a rather important matter for us to think about. If there is any shortage in carrying on the affairs of the Yukon-which is a very costly appendage to the Dominion at the present time, under the government of my hon. friends opposite-Canada
as a whole must come to the rescue. Prima facie, articles like this, I think, should bear a tax, and usually do. What in the world is the reason actuating the Yukon Council in taking off the tax? The matter of revenue is so important that I do not think the minister ought to put his resolution through without giving us information as to how this affects the revenue. Does not the minister think that reasonable?
