WESTERN FARMERS' DELEGATION.
TRAFFIC AGREEMENT BETWEEN CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES.
RECIPROCITY-INQUIRY FOR PAPERS.
Mr. BRADBURYL I desire to call the attention of the Minister of Finance to the returns brought down of the petitions and representations for and against the proposed arrangement with the American government. I notice that the petition from Manitoba in favour of admitting vegetables free into Canada is among the papers brought down, but the petitions against admitting them free are not included. Last year I had the honour to present to this House a petition from the Kildonan Association protesting against the admission of vegetables into this country free of duty. I think there was a petition sent to the hon. minister in addition to that. And I understand that a similar petition was sent in the early part of the present session. Does the minister intend to bring these down? I may also mention a petition from the stonecutters along the same line.
