I should like to endorse
the suggestion of my hon. friend from Lotbiniere, not only as regards his county, but also the county of Kamouraska, of which I have spoken twice already during the discussion of the Estimates of this department. At St. Pascal, the county seat of Kamouraska, we not only hold a county fair each year, but we have there a large, splendid permanent building, built especially for exhibiting cattle. The father of my hon. friend from South Quebec (Mr. Power), who died last fall, had a farm in the county of Kamouraska and he was in the habit of exhibiting a great many thoroughbred cattle In this building at the county seat. I think in view of all the efforts that have been made in the past by the people of the county of Kamouraska for the development of agriculture, they should certainly receive some share of the money that is allotted by the department for these fairs.
