March 21, 1978

Mr. Stewart (Marquette):

Mr. Speaker, the figures I used and which the minister questioned are from the president of the Manitoba pool elevators. My supplementary question is as follows: As it is an unfortunate fact that Manitoba granaries are the last to be emptied each year, and as Manitoba farmer's grain deliveries are 9.2 million bushels behind last year, will special attention be paid to this situation particularly before the farmers face the spring thaw and road restrictions?

Due to the fact there have been demands to continue the same type of service in Manitoba, rural routes and Saturday morning wicket service, is the minister saying there is one type of service for Ontario and another type for Manitoba?
