Mr. Juiras:

I want to tell my hon. friends from that particular party that no amount of sniping on their part or any of their remarks will in any way diminish the reputation of the Minister of Trade and Commerce. He is by common agreement one of the greatest Canadians who ever lived. He has made one of the greatest contribution's during both wartime and peacetime. Let me tell my hon. friends of the socialist party that in spite of what they say, the Minister of Trade and Commerce has made one of

Grain

the greatest contributions to the cause of the grain growers in western Canada, and no amount of misrepresentation on their part will take that away from him. He has been disposing of our grain crops in this country for a great many years. He has gone through very difficult times to dispose of those crops, and in spite of the very heavy competition that my hon. friends complain about, and rightly so to a degree, from our United States friends to the south, the Canadian wheat board, with the advice of the Minister of Trade and Commerce, has been able to keep its pace and its place in the export markets of the world. That in itself is a great accomplishment, and nobody can take that away from him.

Out in the country my hon. friends complain that the Minister of Trade and Commerce is a tough character, that he is a very busy man and has too much to do. The fact remains that he has a tough job selling the grain in the world today. It is not an easy job, and we are fortunate to have the Minister of Trade and Commerce to handle the job. I defy anyone in this house to produce anybody who would be better qualified than the Minister of Trade and Commerce to do that job. There is certainly nobody in the official opposition who could undertake the job he has at the moment.

Mr. Jutras:

Yes. I suggest that anybody can read their representations, and the Minister of Trade and Commerce can read as well as any hon. member in the C.C.F. group. I think he has as good an understanding of the English language as any of them. If some of them, and particularly the hon. member for Moose Mountain, will read the speeches he made on this resolution, they might find a few surprises, because I am sure even the farm organizations would not agree with all the interpretations the hon. member placed on them. For instance, the hon. member for Moose Mountain said the farm organizations had capitulated to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. I doubt very much whether they would agree with that. As a matter of fact I am quite sure they would be the first to deny it.
