This government has
stood at the gates day and night to see that this country was not flooded with the distress goods from other highly protected countries. I am thankful that this government has taken upon itself a full knowledge of the trust given to it by the people, to protect and look after the Canadian people. I believe that it is the duty of all governments, first of all, to look after the people they are elected to govern and then after the Canadian people have been fully safeguarded, by cooperation, coordination or otherwise to help the other parts of the empire or other countries in the world. I believe this government has well fulfilled that duty. I again express my appreciation of their wisdom and fidelity and, to use words similar to those uttered by the Prime Minister, I say: You have done well.
