Mr. J. L. CHABOT (Ottawa):

I just want to comment briefly upon a question I put to the Minister of Finance (Mr. Robb) when he was discussing the matter of taxation in a general way. The minister has been kind

Taxation in Canada

enough to send me a copy of the public accounts, to enlighten me as to the reduction in expenditures by the government during its tenure of office between the years 1921 and 1925, and I am bound to say that during that time the government has failed to deal satisfactorily with taxation, notwithstanding the wonderful resources of the country, notwithstanding our favourable situation, and notwithstanding the fact that Canada pays less than any other country in the world for selfdefence. My figures are also derived from the public accounts. I claim that 5 p.m. from 1921 to 1925 the government has actually collected in the form of special taxes the sum of $629,601,176 more than the government preceding it did during a similar period. In 1917 the special war taxes amounted to $16,000,000; in 1918, $25,000,000; in 1919, $56,000,000, and in 1920, $82,000,000. Let us compare that with the revenues derived from the same source in the Liberal regime for three years. I have not the figures for 1921, but in 1922 there was collected $177,484.000; in 1923, $181,634,000, and in 1924, $182'000,000 odd. Notwithstanding these enormous collections the government did not reduce taxation by a cent, and I simply want tc express the hope now that if hon. gentlemen opposite retain power for any length of time -as I am sure they will not-they will make an honest effort to reduce expenditures and thus reduce taxation.
