But by golly, you sure ate those words in a hurry didn't you How much ore I hey worth now? Last time I heard il was But I must say that one t-boul the home purchase grant is really ci drily. It ninkes the month promise of old Bill Abcrhart back in the good old days of Social Credit look like pretty small potatoes. A (ot of people fell for that one, remember? I thought your party had buried thnt kind of line, but here you've dragged that corpse out of the gravo again. The way ihe people are rcncling lo it in my riding suggests to me that you had belter bury it in u hurry, for it sure has smelled up your campaign. But wail a minute, Mr. Premier, thore may be another way out. You say Ihe home purchase grant may be made retroactive to August 3. Maybe if you made it retroactive way back lo 1936 when Aberhart dreamed up the scheme you'd pay off a lot of political debts. Yours sincerely DICK GRAY Progressive!
