Mr. Van Home:

I merely read a report that the hon. member had said that. I can assure the hon. member that is not the case. We in the maritime provinces are interested in this matter of getting the energy board to take a more serious attitude toward our problems. I wish to take this opportunity of going on record to request the government to direct the energy board to give more serious consideration to these problems that come under this act, as they relate to the maritime provinces.

Right Hon. C. D. Howe (Minister of Trade and Commerce):

The hon. member is using his position in parliament to obtain information for a small broker in the city of Winnipeg, and I object to giving that information, because I do not think that to do so would help the sale of Canadian wheat.
