Mr. LALOR:

The profiteers if you like but I want the hon. member to understand that the profiteers have not made very much money on goods in Canada for a long time. The prices are closer than they are anywhere else, and are in the interest of the Canadian consumer too. I do not believe we should let American goods come in here at sacrifice prices when they put up the walls against us in shipping to them. I have not much faith in appointing trade commissioners in the United States because I do not believe they can sell any great quantity of goods in that country. They do not want our goods over there and they have put up all the protective barriers they possibly can to keep those goods out. That is their policy. It is not only in the customs duties they charge that the obstacle exists, but in the regulations they enforce concerning goods going into the United States. I think if my hon. friend from Renfrew will study the American customs regulations a little he will not leave this country but will stay here.

Mr. LALOR:

As I say, according to their regulations, in order to get your goods admitted, you must show a profit of 10 per cent, and the price is raised in any case where they deem the amount to be too low.
