Mr. G. H. Whittaker (Okanagan Boundary):
Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege, of which I sent you notice, in the interests of the apple growers of Nova Scotia, Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia.
When I went to the cafeteria last evening I picked up the apple I have in my hand which was offered for sale. It has the telltale marks of bitterpit which render it unfit for human consumption. Believing it to come from British Columbia I asked to see the box, because from the code on the box I would be able to ascertain the packer and probably the grower and therefore could caution them about sending such apples to the House of Commons. But to my surprise and horror I found that the box came from Washington state.
