Frank Boyes

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BOYES:

I should like to add just a
few words to what has been said with regard to corn. Last night the hon. member for West Middlesex (Mr. Elliott) spoke on this matter and opposed the duty on corn. I am from the eastern portion of the same county, and I wish to say that I am decidedly in favour of the duty. Our people in the county of Middlesex can raise corn in abundance, and I am sure that they will strongly favour this duty. I believe the farmers of our country should receive protection on a great many commodities, and the duty on corn is one of the ways in which we can protect our farmers to some extent.
