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:

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:

I think that as a rule our prices in Canada are lower than they are in the United States, although the scale of wages to our working people in Canada is exactly the same as that paid in the American factory.

Mr. LALOR:

May I ask the hon. member for Halifax a question? In exporting to the United States all exporters for any amount over $100 must get a consular certificate and pay a fee of $2.50 or $3, I forget which.

Mr. LALOR:

I was merely asking the judgment of the hon. member for Halifax, as to who would pay it; that is all.
