T. A. Crerar, "lhal the farmers seek lo sweep away all'tariffs; llrat they are going to make a clean break with the thing, and that nothing in the way tari'f -will he left. That is not true." it has been the policy of all the opponents of the Council of Agricul- ture platform .to term it a free trade platform. Tho plalfonn doesn't Fay ED, but that doesn't moke any dlffer- 1 oiice .to tho protected interests. It is like their altitude towards reci- procity; they feared free trade would follow: Free trade will only come in Canada if it is to the advantage of tho a whole. In the mean- time it is -well to nol overlook that tho Council of Agriculture platform is progressive in its attitude toward all great .questions. As for the tariff it advocates' the entire removal ot very burdensome, duties that interfere with the development of our great resources, but In the main the platform, stands for a progressive re ductlon- of duties and lutlmato free Great Britain, and will other Ihflt put Canada on :i similar .basis. As for free trade :i with tall Iho world, It Is not true, as office iu a hurry. It got Impatient when the Government delayed con- struction.
