Mr. BOSS (Ontario).
- I have already said I am opposed to the motion of the hon. member for Jacques Cartier (Mr. Monk), and I have already said that I did not think it would be wise to bring this Bill into force this year. As I have said the time for the seed trade is practically upon us and the conditions imposed by this Bill will, I do not say revolutionize, but change in some respects this important trade. Therefore, I think it would be wise to delay. If the minister needs a precedent, I would refer him to the case of the Fruit Marks Act which was brought in one session and discussed, and it was then decided that some such law was needed. The Bill was left over until the folllowing session. That law has been beneficial and the treatment of il might be taken as a precedent in this case.
