Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. GORDON (Nipissing).

I am sorry to have to differ a little with my hon. friend from Macleod (Mr. Herron); but if such a regulation were enforced, there would be great danger of there being more dry timber to handle than there is at present. I also am in favour of giving the settlers every possible advantage, but I would rather provide for them getting green timber, for the simple reason that I think it would be hutting a premium upon unscrupulous people seeing that they always have dry timber ahead.
