Liberal

Mr. LAPOINTE:

Here are the words of
my hon. friend, taken from page 656 of Hansard:
While the tariff changes may seem minor when one looks at them first, already from reports coming in to members of this house who have in their constituencies mills which are affected by these tariff changes, it looks as if serious injury was once again going to be done by this government to the industrial life of this country.
Further on he says:
As time goes on, the government and the people of this country will find that the reductions in the present tariff, though minor in appearance will do more injury to the industrial life of our country and drive still greater numbers of our people to the country to the south of us to earn their living which they are denied here at home.
