Mr. McGOWAN.

I would point out to the hon. minister, that in my locality a number of farmers have purchased turnip seed in which there was a good deal of foul rape seed and that has done a great deal of damage. I am sorry the minister does not provide against that in this Bill. It would not be well to have the provisions of this measure too drastic, but at the same time there certainly should be some legislation passed in this direction.

Mr. McGOWAN.

My experience is that some legislation along the lines suggested by this Bill is very desireable. I know a good many farmers who have had their farms poisoned by foul weeds, and there is a general opinion amongst the farmers of my locality that some legislation of this kind should be adopted by parliament.
