August 31, 1917 (12th Parliament, 7th Session)


William Erskine Knowles



Is there still hope that a sample market may be opened at Moose-jaw? Some years ago, when the Canada Grain Act was going through Parliament,
I urged very strongly that a sample market be placed at Moosejaw, and I gave reasons which I thought were good. Moosejaw is the railway centre of the country north and west, and is directly connected by rail with Minneapolis where there is a special opportunity for the sale of wheat through a sample market. Although I am a Moosejaw man, I think, on the merits of the case, that there is more ground for having a sample market at Moosejaw than at any other place. It is so situated that the wheat would "funnel" right through it to Minneapolis.
