Thomas William Bird

Progressive

Mr. BIRD:

I think my position in this House has proved that it is not Liberalism for the farmers. I was not going to make this remark; but I will make it now. If there is any analogy in history that fits the party opposite it seems to me that it is Joseph's coat. Hon. members will remember that Joseph's coat was a coat of many colours-about the only thing, I think, about Joseph that is like the present party opposite. If I remember rightly, Joseph was in favour of a wheat board.
