Conservative (1867-1942)


I have here a report of a conference of the National Dairy Council of Canada and I find, looking over this report, that there were present at that meeting of the council the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King), the Hon. W. R. Motherwell, Minister of Agriculture, the Hon. W. D. Euler, Minister of National Revenue, the Hon. J. A. Robb, Minister of Finance, the Hon. Charles A. Dunning, Minister of Railways, the Hon. Charles Stewart, Minister of the Interior, the Hon. J. C. Elliott, Minister of Public Works and the Hon. James Malcolm, Minister of Trade and Commerce. An appeal was made to the members of the cabinet asking them to rescind the trade arrangement which had been made with Australia in that treaty. I wonder what the government intends to do about it. I notice in this report that in the Minister of Agriculture's own province over twenty dairy organizations closed their doors last fall.
