PRO

Oliver Robert Gould

Progressive

Mr. GOULD:

Possibly, tomorrow, you will go back to your constituency, and later you will be able to say "We were in power", and then you will have no further opportunity of implementing the promise. You will be told that you had been in power and the pledges were not implemented. The last clause in the Liberal platform distinctly and expressly states "When returned to power". The people of Canada- and well do we know it, Sir,-depended upon it and expected, particularly with reference to implements of production, that a change would be made, that that would be the point where it would start, and that implements would be made free of duty, so that we would have an opportunity of going into business of production on a much sounder and stronger basis than ever before. I referred to the similarity of the tariff plank of the Liberal party with the tariff plank of the Progressive party. And the story I tell the Canadian people and the story I tell the Liberal party to-day is that the Progressive party is the one who would implement that promise. Let the Canadian people
The Budget-Mr. Gould

know where we stand. Let the people know that this representative from Assiniboia is a Progressive, and that he is still absolutely standing upon his platform.
