Mr. ROSS (Moose Jaw):

If the United

States have a much higher tariff than we have, at all events they sell their goods much cheaper, and they can sell their goods in this country much cheaper than olur own manufacturers do.

Mr. ROSS (Moose Jaw):

Just to give you an instance, the other evening when the former member for Regina, Mr. Darke, was speaking of the Ford car, he was questioned by an hon. gentleman opposite. Now our tariff on the parts that go into a Ford car is around 25 per cent, and I believe the total amount collected on the parts of a Ford car entering this country would amount to about $25. But the extra cost to us of a complete Ford car in this country is $150. In Saskatchewan we have to pay $150 more for a Ford car than they pay right across the line to the south of us. If the people who want tariff protection in this country would ask only for the tariff protection they need, you would find that that extra $125 paid by the people of Canada for that Ford car would be spent in buying other articles made in this Dominion, thereby helping other industries.

Mr. ROSS (Moose Jaw):

Does the hon.

member happen to know that the Grain Growers Grain Company, even if they were taking 21 per cent more on account of duties, or whatever they took it for, sold those implements at a great deal less than the regular line companies of Canada?

Mr. ROSS (Moose Jaw):

May I ask the hon. member a question? I presume the figures he has given are from reliable sources. Would he care to state where he got the figure of 4,000,000 pounds?
