Mr. Julras:

Nobody has said that the farm organizations want this and nothing else, but neither has anyone ever suggested that one absolutely eliminates the other. You are trying to confuse two things that are quite different. As the title suggests, this is an interim and temporary measure designed to meet an immediate situation. We hope there will be no need for it in years to come. We hope the situation will clear itself. This is a new condition as far as agriculture in Canada is concerned. We have always had surpluses, but we have always been able to deliver.

Grain

It is quite possible that the present situation will develop into a permanent situation. There is no doubt in my mind that if this should prove to be the case the government will meet the situation, as it has always met all situations as they have arisen. The Minister of Trade and Commerce has not said that he has a closed mind with respect to this matter, or that he has closed the door and will not consider farm credit or cash advances on farm-stored grain. The matter is presently under consideration by the government.

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.
