Buchanan's Speech in Debate on the Budget iCOKTiXUED KRO.M PAGE FU'E.) irine oi politicians, but as the view (if the larmers themselves. I quote kirthcr from this address ; Vou kno->v ihat Canada's railroad ;ir province. West of the city of (.'algary practically no grain is produced. Nortli of the city there is a mi.xed farming country. The farmers to the oast, along the main line of the Canadian Pacific railway, and the Goose I^ake line of the Canadian Northern railway would naturally r-end their grain to the elevators at Saskatoon and .Moose .law. It is in Ihe extreme southern part of the province that the great proportion of grain for export is grown in Alberta, and in order to reach Calgar.v elevator ninety-nine and a half per cent of it would have to tindergo a back haul. In response to a question that I asked since the opening of the present session, the minister informed me that the Calgary elevator was ereiteil to serve shipments by the Pacific and through the Panama canal. Thai elevator has been constructed, and is receiving a little-very little- grain. It is a fact, however, that no test has been made to prove that grain can he shipped in bulk by the Pacific route. Jlr. ClJimiE. Is that not due to the fact that the Panama canal is not open? .Mr. BUCHANAN: What 1 am trying to j)oint out is that no test has been made to establish whether or not this route is pravas IS,'),4,".." bushels; that from January 1, lyi.'i. to .lanuary 14. :l!ili;. the amount received was 2-lS.-;;!ii7 bushels. I have said that In the I southern pan of the province from ' tifiopu to tweuiv million liusliels of ; grain are still in the possession of Ihe farmers, who have no facilities for disposin.s; of it. In some sections of Illy constituency wheat is lyitig out in the open because the farmers could I not raise t!ie money to buy luml)cr to lorrr't storage bins upon their farms. !This wheat, lying in the open with I a covering of straw, is In danger of � being ruined if the weather condi-Itlons are severe In the coming spring. I The elevator at Calgary, which cos! j the people of Canada a lot of money, ! is practically of no service lo the farmers of Alberta. It that elevator I was elected solely for the purpose, of i meeting the needs of shipment west-Mvard via the Pacific; I do not tliink \ it should have been erected until ' the feasibiUly of that route had been i established. If, on the other hand, j it was erected to meet the pr�senl needs, it should have been pla^'ed in I another jian of the province where it would meet the requirements of the farmers iu the harvest and crop-selling season. I have been speaking of the needs of western Canada, and particularly of my own province. I wish to emphasize the fact that we are uSking not for anything of an exceptional nafiiie. hut simply for the solution of the problems which face us from year to year. If we want to have a happy and contented people in the western j prairies; if we want to encourage Im-inigi'ation into that country and to accelerate its development, these problems must be solved. Those men In eastern Canada who are engaged In commercial or industrial activities will admit that Ihn prosperity of the whole country depends very largely upon the development and prosperity iof the western provinces. This year jevidenve was given of that fact; If 'we had not had Ihe crop that we did have last year, there would not he the business prosperity which exists in many cities and towns of eastern Canada. It is true that the war has helped many of tliese communities, hut It is true also that many industrial and mercantile houses would ! have suffered severely had It nol been for western Canada's great crop last year. The Minister of Trade and Commerce gave us today a vision of Canada after the war. Hut. we can develop that vision during the war and aid in carrying out his vision of Canada after the war. There must be a system of give and take In this country, and the problems of the western farmer miisl be solved In order to bring about contentment In the western country, and in order to satisfy us that we will have a united Canada i now iind Joreveimore, If those prob-ilems are solved during the course of jthis year, after the war, the western prairies will be populated hy u peo- REG Cranhrook. 1!.
