Mr. Nickle:

May I ask a supplementary question. Perhaps before doing that I ought to give an explanation of the bootlegging of grain as defined by the president of the farmers' union of Alberta. This is taken from the report of the special committee of that union:

Some irrigation farmers or ranchers who have no grain of their own to sell to the wheat board find a straight grain farmer who is short of dollars and buy a readily saleable grade of wheat at a price considerably less than the legal initial payment price at the elevator, and deliver the grain on their own producer's permit.

In some cases this type of transaction is facilitated by the elevator agent who may do it as a service to his customer or take a cut from both producer and the seller in the transaction.

I believe, sir, the rather serious charge involved here is a matter that would certainly come under the jurisdiction of the Canadian wheat board.

Mr. Nickle:

I think the minister is quite aware, as are other members of this house, that donations to any charitable organization cost the taxpayer money and involve to some extent a loss in revenue to the government.

However, my point is this. As indicated by such recent federal actions as the setting up of the Canada Council, our grants to universities and the increase in various welfare payments, the government of Canada recognizes the fact that there is a need which must be met either by private capital or by government capital, the capital of all the

Mr. Nickle:

I should like to make one further comment. Under an amendment to the succession duty act which we shall be considering later today the government is going a further step along the way of encouraging Canadians to turn over a portion of their estates to charitable causes in Canada, by giving some relief from succession duties on the amounts which are contributed to charities on the death of the owner of the estate.

By making further concessions by way of reduction in succession duties it seems to me we encourage Canadians to give up part of their estates or all of their estates to charity on their death. Why not go one step further and recognize that it is better to encourage Canadians during their lifetime to give more liberally to charitable organizations and to educational causes in Canada? If we are prepared to give up some federal government revenue derived from succession duties by making concessions in the succession duty act-in other words, if we are willing to give Canadians concessions if they are prepared to give parts of their estates to charities on their death-why should we not encourage them to do the same thing during their lifetime by accepting the recommendation I have just made?

Mr. Carl O. Nickle (Calgary South):

I should like to direct a question to the Minister of National Health and Welfare, of which I have given notice. It is based upon an article in the Calgary Albertan reporting a serious shortage of Salk anti-polio vaccine in the Calgary area.

In view of the shortage of Salk vaccine in southern Alberta for use by private practitioners, caused by curtailment of exports of vaccine by the United States, will the government now make available a portion of the Canadian-produced vaccine currently earmarked for public health in order that the medical profession may resume service with this vaccine to Canadians not covered by the public health program?
