James Garfield Gardiner (Minister of Agriculture)
This legislation has been before the law officers, and has been drafted in the light of the decision made by the privy council. As I understand it, all the privy council said in connection with this matter was that we had no right to say that a substitute for butter could not be manufactured in a province and sold in a province. They have said we had no right to say it-and for exactly the same reasons as I gave a moment ago, that we have no right to interfere with the grading of butter in a creamery in Ontario. That is a matter for Ontario. It is only when there is shipment of a product from one province to another or from this country to another country that we have anything to do with it. That latter power is all left with us; this bill still provides for our doing what we did under that power before.
