ONTARIO APPLES

APPRECIATION OF GIFT OF MEMBER FOR LEEDS

LIB

Daniel (Dan) McIvor

Liberal

Mr. Daniel Mclvor (Fort William):

Mr. Speaker, out of the goodness of his heart someone occasionally provides a treat for members of this house; and today we have on our desks these beautiful apples. We thank the donor, but so far as I am concerned the apples would taste far sweeter if the gift were shared by all those in the house, including the page boys and others.

I say a word in appreciation of these apples which have been given to us by an hon. member from Ontario-in lively anticipation of the British Columbia apples we shall be given later, which will be of a much greater size.

Mr. G. T. Fulford (Leeds):

These apples were presented to me on Monday, as I was leaving Brockville. They are McIntosh Reds, and were grown by a resident of the county of Leeds. I hope they prove that the apples of eastern Ontario will stand up against those grown anywhere else in Canada. As you know, Mr. Speaker, eastern Ontario is the home of the McIntosh Red.
