Mr. PICKEL:

We are not doing anything to injure the wheat farmers; we know a duty on butter will help us.

Mr. PICKEL:

The cost of butter in Canada has been comparatively low since the advent of the Australian treaty. The efforts of the ex-Minister of Agriculture to convince members of this house that our milk production had increased is rather far-fetched. The price of butter on account of the importation of the New Zealand commodity-

Mr. PICKEL:

With grain at 30 cents and middlings at 40 cents, it costs the farmer 40 cents per pound to produce butter, but when the price of grain is much cheaper his cost of production is lower. I will have to support the appropriation asked for.

Mr. PICKEL:

It was lower after the advent of the treaty. During the campaign last July we did not go about this country telling the electors that they were going to get 50 or 60 cents a pound for their butter, at least, not in my section of the country. We told them that we were going to prevent external competition. The dairying industry in Canada was absolutely ruined by the Australian treaty, which was the most iniquitous piece of legislation ever enacted.

Mr. PICKEL:

I should like, Mr. Chairman, to add a few words to this discussion. We have figures of the comparative prices of butter in the United States and in Canada, and those figures are very significant. Until 1925 our butter compared very favourably with American butter in regard to price, but in 1925, after the Australian treaty came into force, our butter was sold for much less than the price the commodity brought in the United States. So much was this the case that in the first fifteen days of September, 1926, the American farmer was receiving 26 cents a pound more for his butter than the Canadian farmer was receiving; he was getting 55 cents a pound and the Canadian farmer was getting 29 cents.
