January 19, 1960

Mr. Korchinski:

Mr. Chairman, this afternoon we witnessed a typical day in the House of Commons, the C.C.F. running in one direction and the Liberals in the other. The hon.

79951-0-8J

Advance Payments to Grain Producers member for Assiniboia started off by telling us that this was a measure by which the prairie farmers affected by the adverse conditions would not get payments. The hon. member for Assiniboia who I am sure is a close follower of The Western Producer should have read the January 14 issue of that publication. In bold print on that day it carried this headline: "Farm Payments Near $1 Million".

The article goes on to state:

Payments totalling nearly $1 million for Saskatchewan farmers who were unable to thresh their crops have been approved by the plant industry branch of the department of agriculture, it was announced by agriculture minister I. C. Nollet January 8.

Mr. Nollet said 3,000 applications have been received from farmers who have qualified for payments under the federal provincial program. The applications were from 24 municipalities and local improvement districts in northern and eastern Saskatchewan and the first cheques went out Jar-uary 8.

The Liberals, typical of their understanding of the agricultural situation in the west, started out by telling us through the spokesmen for their party that they knew nothing, a fact which did not require underscoring from our point of view. Those hon. gentlemen who sit in the front benches on the Liberal side and who participated in the debate today spoke about everything and nothing. Of particular interest were the remarks of the hon. member for Essex East who stated that the farmers in the west should receive this assistance provided it was also given to the eastern farmers.

Mr. Korchinski:

I should like to say a few words to the Minister of Agriculture. I hope that he can extend the jurisdiction of the act. Because of the way the act is constituted at the present time some of the areas

in my constituency are not covered. This, of course, presents quite a problem to some of the people because there is a considerable amount of diversification going on and many of these people depend on dugouts for their water supply. If they are to diversify they must have water. In some areas certain portions of the municipalities are not covered. This creates a difficulty for the people within the boundaries of a particular municipality.

In addition, I might suggest to the minister that the present rate of compensation paid should be increased. The original intent was to compensate for part of the construction of dugouts and dams. Since then the cost of construction has gone up considerably. Perhaps the time has come when we should take another look at this, and a higher rate of compensation be paid.

Mr. S. J. Korchinski (Mackenzie):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to address a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. Can he inform the house whether he has anything further to add to the answers previously

given regarding the movement of tough and damp grain in the northeastern corner of Saskatchewan?

Hon. Gordon Churchill (Minister of Trade

and Commerce): Yes, Mr. Speaker. This is a matter which is of considerable concern to the producers of that area, and every effort has been made to meet their requirements. The wheat board has advised me now that while very little space is available for local deliveries at the points in northeastern Saskatchewan which are affected, there are outstanding shipping orders in the hands of the elevator agents for 30 cars, 12 cars and 15 cars, respectively, for three areas, Hudson Bay, Veillardville and Erwood. As navigation at the lakehead has just opened, grain to that destination will be moving more freely from now on, and it is anticipated by the Canadian wheat board that the railway company will be in a position to furnish box cars in fulfilment of the outstanding orders and additional orders commencing within a few days. As space becomes available for further deliveries by producers, delivery quotas will be increased accordingly.

The shipment of tough and damp grain to lakehead terminals will be continued by the board on a first priority basis, and the board expects that opportunity will be provided to market most of the tough and damp grain in the area during the course of the next few weeks.

Mr. S. J. Korchinski (Mackenzie):

Mr. Speaker, I should like to direct a question to the Minister of Trade and Commerce. In view of the large amount of tough and damp grain still on farms, particularly in the northeastern part of Saskatchewan, can the minister inform the house whether quotas will be raised and priority on box cars will be given to have this grain shipped out before the mild weather sets in, and thus avoid spoilage?
