Mr. Ross (Souris):

The years used for comparison of cattle prices were 1943-45 and the present, and I think that was a most unfair comparison. The prices which existed in Canada during 1943-45 were as a result of this embargo imposed by the Canadian government. During those calendar years the difference between what the Canadian producer received for his livestock and coarse grains and the prevailing prices in the United States amounted to several hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

Mr. J. A. Ross (Souris):

Mr. Speaker, I have listened with some interest to the minister's address on the new international wheat agreement. He ended his remarks by saying that it is not a perfect agreement, but I should like to say that I believe it is very disappointing to the great majority of farm producers. He talked about security and stabilization. We have had some experience in this respect both under the United King-dom-Canada agreement and under the prevailing wheat agreement. On the basis of the difference between the price for class II wheat and what the farmers actually received in these periods, such agreements have cost the farmers in the neighbourhood of $800 million. To my mind that is quite a price to pay for the system of stabilization that is being sought.
