Thomas Wilson Crothers (Minister of Labour)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CROTHERS:

Then I beg his pardon;
I thought he had said so. But we all know that potatoes have gone to the United

States from Canada. And why? Because they are dearer there than here. Then, what about the food controller of the United States, who was to have reduced the price of everything in that country? But it is just the same old story-one day these hon. gentlemen are begging ifor conditions under which the farmer shall be 'able to get more for his wheat, and the next day attacking the Government because the farmer gets so much. It is the same effort to humbug the country. But it failed in 1911, and it fails now, and it will fail whenever it is tried.
