Mr. LEADER:

I do not speak in the house very' often, and I am sure hon. members do not begrudge me these few minutes. Perhaps I am out of order in these remarks, but as a farmer and live stock producer I think at this time the government should undertake to bring out from Great Britain as much as possible of the thoroughbred live stock at present in that country. Britain is the nursery for many of our best breeds of live stock, and the government should give consideration to this suggestion if they have not done so already, because it may be that millions of those grand animals will be slaughtered. We have plenty of room for them here in Canada; and as a live stock producer and breeder I am not afraid of competition from the old country.
