Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

Does the minister think it is right for him to impose a greater degree of particularity on the home manufacturer than he does on the foreign exporter, his competitor in the Canadian market?

Mr. LAPOINTE:

The provision now proposed is exactly as it was before, with the exception that three lines have been added., which read:

-and no false or misleading mark or designation of the kind or variety of the contents shall he shown on any can of fish or shellfish imported for sale in Canada.

I am adopting the section as enacted by the former government, adding this clause which is intended to stop the practice of Alaska packers sending Alaska red eye into Canada labelled as sockeye, which enables them to compete with British Columbia sockeye, a much superior fish. This provision protects the home industry.

Sir HENRY DRAYTON:

My hon. friend is the chief one. Does he not think that as much care should be taken in connection with the marketing of these goods, having regard to the foreigner, as is taken in connection with the home manufacturer.

Mr. LAPOINTE:

This was the law before. We are making it more severe against the foreign canner than it was formerly, and, moreover, the Canadian canners accept this change. All the provisions of this bill have been submitted to them, both in British Columbia and the maritime provinces, and they have suggested changes which we have adopted. This bill meets their views. Surely, it should meet the views of my hon. friend.
