Mr. A. MARTIN (Queens).

It speaks well for my province that land is so expensive there that the government cannot establish an experimental station. Every acre of land in my province is valuable. However that is a poor excuse and I would like to know what investigation has been made and what effort has been made to acquire a site ? They have experimental stations in almost every province except Prince Edward Island and I want to know why one is not established in Prince Edward Island. It is a good advertisement for my province to say that land is very valuable there and I would like to have that advertised all over Canada. But if the minister tries he can get good land at a reasonable price.
