GiWEWUSlAL (CONTIVTTTO FBOM gBOlTr PaO�> heaped upon us after the war," said Sir John in the course of hia speech, "we must produce as we have never produced before, both Industrially and agriculturally." "There are in Canada today," te said, '-'munition i^rkers numbering 250,000 at least. In trades contingent to war supplies there are 100,000 more. At the end of the,(war. there will be at leaBt..350,000 soldiers returning to us. Counting these, aiid their dependents and the war workers-and their dependents, it means that there will be two million people out of our population of eight millions vitally affected by after the war . conditions. The point "of view of our. organization is that every factory then must be working full time, and that there must be continuous productjoii. Sir John made a diversion here, to speak rit the criticism" the organization had received in the newspapers. Speaking as a newspaper man he said that newspaper criticism was never very serious anyway,' a statement which brought a grin to certaiiT faces in the audience. ' The Tariff. - , Speaking of the tariff after the war, ,^he said that there wo.uld be a revision I after the war but that it would be as likely downward as upward. He said tliat conditions should be adjusted to 'give increased manufacturing efficiency, and to -make possible to a greater extent the manufacture of Canadian raw materials, in Canada. We should relate our. industries more to our natural resources rather than to try to build them up by-compulsory tariffs. Build Up Industries. The manufactui;e of Canadian raw materials in Canada would mean the building up of the population and consequently the ftstaljlishment of new markets for ^he farmer's produce. The west, he said, was the natural seat for the milling industry, and possibly also many other industries. It was difficult of course to draw industries or to develop them where there was no population, but surely he said, the government Hliould make efforts to discover what were Canada's resources and to see that these resources were.developed. The country had timber, lead, iron, zinc, and these should be the basis for our industries. Keep These Taxes. With relation to taxation after the war Sir John felt that the income tax and the eice.sH profits tax would not pass away, nor should they. Ther^ will be a great reveuue. from Industries. The net debt of the country before the war was 336 -millions. The dobt now was ?l,20O,000,OOO.

In his opinion Bomo such organization would be needed after the war to aid in the establishment of after-the-war industries.
