CON

John Allister Currie

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. CURRIE:

The hon. gentleman goes far afield from his own home for. his illustration and argument on the subject of the high cost of living. He goes away to the Northwest and takes the case of wheat and flour. But why does not he speak on behalf of the poor people in his own province who were faced with the high prices of coal during this cold winter? I have never heard him raise his voice in a single word against the high price of coal until now when he has been challenged.

Topic:   IN COMMITTEE OF SUPPLY.
