Mr. THOMSON (Qu'Appelle) :

The hon. member has no right whatever to spread that idea abroad. When that question comes up in proper order I shall be as ready as my hon. friend to state my views. He never needs to explain his policy. He wants to have a protective tariff so high that he can drain the last cent that he can possibly get out of the pocket of every Canadian. That is the policy the minister is following now, to put the manufacturers in a position where they can drain the last cent possible from the pockets of the people. It is not insanity at all, it is business keenness in an attempt to help out the manufacturers.
