In the market reports a week ago potatoes were quoted in the United States at $3 a barrel, and I think that the hon. gentleman who is sitting at my hon. friend's right (Mr. Spence) can tell him that potatoes in Toronto have been selling at from 75 to 85 and possibly 90 cents a bag, that is, about $1.50 a barrel.
