Mr. Decore:

I believe the hon. member was in the house at the time the United Kingdom wheat agreement came before us for ratification. Did the hon. member vote in favour of that agreement or against it?

Mr. Decore:

In fact, some of them also do a little rabble rousing on the hustings by suggesting a farmers' march on Ottawa. I understand that the hon. member for Assini-boia (Mr. Argue)-it is too bad he is not in his seat today-has been urging the farmers to march on Ottawa.

February 7, 1957

Mr. Decore:

We do know that there are powerful interests in this country such as the Winnipeg grain exchange, that would like to dispense with the wheat board system of marketing our grain, but I am not so much concerned about them because we know exactly what they are trying to do. I am more concerned about some of these do-gooders who support the wheat board so vigorously and at the same time make various suggestions which, if adopted by the government or the wheat board, would certainly tend to wreck the board.
