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:

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]

If the hon. gentleman will allow us the same protective tariff that he supported. for sixteen years we will be perfectly satisfied.

Mr. LALOR:

I certainly do not like it. Yet hon. gentlemen opposite tell us that we should lower our aduties and let them ship their goods in and sacrifice them in this country. They have been doing that for the last year and in consequence our factories are closed up to-day. Our factories cannot sell the goods but the Americans are selling them at these sacrifice prices. We have had experience with some of their customs regulations. I cited cases the other day where they imposed fines on goods entering the United States because the figures were not in accordance with their idea of What the profit should be. In view of such conditions surely we in this country should have a little pride and keep Canadian business for Canadian people in the interest of the men who are working in Canadian factories.
