inference from his observations is that the dairy and agriculture industries are in such good shape in this country, why are we receiving all these protests from one end of Canada to the other? Are not these protests sufficiently convincing, combined with the minister's own trade returns compiled in the report of 1929? It is surely unnecessary to go into the figures to show that the dairy industry of this country has been tremendously injured by these large imports from New Zealand, because of the favourable conditions under which dairy products can be produced there.
I am not arguing his case. My hon. friend from Weyburn is such an ardent free trader he would faint if anybody suggested he would :be in favour of putting into effect the slightest protective measure. Still, I have no doubt that in some portions of his constituency he has a nice way of explaining to his constituents that he is not really in favour of destroying the industry.
