Mr. LALOR:

That fee we must invariably pay. Now, what is the judgment of the member for Halifax as to shipments coming this way? Will the American pay that fee, or will they make Canadians pay it, or will we be able to take the same position as the Americans do? If we are able to take the same position, then I do not see any reason why Americans should not pay a fee on their exports into Canada. I must say that I hardly realize what our position would he, whether we would be compelled to pay or not, because we are obliged to import from the United States cotton, coal and so many other commodities that we cannot get along without. Whether we can make them pay that consular fee or not is a question, hut if we can I would be glad to make them pay it.

Mr. LALOR:

I am sure we shall all be very sorry indeed if the hon. member is driven out of this country. I strongly advise him if he decides to go, and takes the member for Pontiac with him, that he should not go to the United States. If he does cross over into the adjoining republic and studies the customs regulations there he certainly will not remain in that country, because those regulations are entirely different from the Canadian regulations. Does the hon. member for Renfrew know that you cannot take goods into the United States unless they show a profit of 10 per cent-that is not dumping price or even sacrifice price.

Mr. LALOR:

Might I tell the hon. member the reason? The wall was so high we could not get -over-the regulations were too severe.

Mr. LALOR:

I would advise my hon. friend from Renfrew to get a copy of the American customs tariff and study it a little. He will then see what they do over there as regards our trade. [DOT]

Mr. LALOR:

It concerns us in this way: if they are going to treat this country in such a manner surely we have enough of pride of our own to take a little of that medicine ourselves.
