Mr. THAUVETTE (Translation):

.. .to call your attention to the inconsistency between the attitude of the government at that time and the stand they took during the 1930 campaign. The leader of the opposition, who is now the Prime Minister (Mr. Bennett), knew how to meet the situation, and that great doctor prescribed to the citizens of this country two remedies which could cure all their ills.

Mr. THAUVETTE (Translation):

Unemployment Continuance Act

Mr. Speaker, there is a sound principle of philosophy that says: "The end does not justify the means." We are fully agreed on the principle of this resolution; we are clamouring for the relief of the farmers. I shall further say that as long as the government does not lower its tariff walls in order to let other countries exchange their goods for the surplus of our farm products, there cannot be any prosperity in this country, specially among the farming class.

One must bear in mind that the large farming community comprises 53 per cent of the population of Canada. When the majority in a family is suffering and unhappy, it is easily understood that the other members cannot be cheerful. Let us bring prosperity to the farm because it is the fundamental industry- in a country. It is an industry whose products are perishable. The farmer is not in the position of the manufacturer whose goods can wait on shelves or in storage for higher prices. He is governed by the law of supply and demand. Therefore, the duty of the Canadian government is to create a demand.
