Rupert Ram- say, leader of the Progressive Con- servative forces in Saskatchewan give aa Interesting resume of the political situation in his home pro- vince, in which he said centraliza- tion of authority was in the hands of a board appointed by the C.CJF. government at JJegina. He emphasized that an immense increase in taxation as indicated by the budget brought down by the provincial government uvo months ago had been put into effect, the largest in Saskatchewan's his- tory even though the population was at a dangerously low ebb. Crown companies which gave the government authority to take over, expropriate or. if necessary confis- cate any business or land that is not being used in the public inter- est had made business men very uneasy and had discouraged com- mercial expansion within the pro- vince, the "sDeaker declared. Dealing with the agricultural sit- uation across Canada.
