About 35 people braved the 25-below weather to attend the two-hour meeting and question period. Mr. Olson said the Canadian rate of growth was the highest Of any of the western nations. He said Bill C176 was en- abling legislation for the differ- ent farm groups to put into force whenever they decided they needed it. The government would not put it into effect un- til the majority of the farmers wanted it. He explained the new tax bill and said it would be more equitable. It would remove a lot of the lower income people from paying income tax. Mr. Olson defended Canada's stand on recognizing mainland China and Prime Minister Tru- deau's trip to Russia. He said it would go a long way toward more friendly relations with the Communist countries.
