Mr. MacKenzie:

It is the policy of the Department of Agriculture to pay fairly substantial grants to fairs that qualify as class A and class B. I am suggesting that possibly the class C fair should receive a grant for capital expenditures. I think that with respect to class A and class B fairs the department pays 25 per cent of the permanent capital expenditures. I would suggest that class C fairs could be treated along similar lines and be given a percentage of the capital expenditures they make at those fairs.

Mr. MacKenzie:

Mr. Chairman, I want to say this one additional word. It has been suggested by various speakers that if this amendment carried no public tenders would be called at all and it would be a matter of perpetuity. Of course it does not work out that way, because what they are asking

for has been in operation for many years and there have been a lot of public tenders called within the past few years, every year as a matter of fact. The main reason for that is that, in the rural districts particularly, carriers are underpaid and there are very few people who are willing to take over contracts on the present terms. Consequently there are many public tenders called.

I do not know if the minister has this information, but I wonder how many public tenders have been called for mail contracts, let us say within the last year?

Mr. MacKenzie:

I have been very closely associated with rural mail problems for a number of years. I do not know how it works in other districts, but I am honest when I say that in western Ontario there has been no political activity of any kind in the Post Office Department.
