Mr. LALOR:

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

Mr. LALOR:

If I thought the Canadian had to pay it I do not think I would feel like supporting the proposal. I would be in hopes that the American would pay it.

Mr. LALOR:

There is an old saying that a prophet is without honour in his own country. Perhaps I may express the hope that the prophecy of my hon. friend from Red Deer as to new Cabinet ministers may not be wholly fulfilled. I am glad that he has complimented the Government for accepting the advice which was given them by his leader with regard to the advantage to be gained from the appointment of trade commissioners.

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.
