Mr. BUREAU:

Why so? Does the minister not think it would be fair to apply to any commodity imported into Canada the same standard as is applied to the Canadian producer? If you are going to have a system of inspection for Canadian produce, why not subject the importation of similar produce to the same standard?
If we are going to consume imported products in Canada let us have one standard that will protect the consumer, and let it be the Canadian standard, instead of the standard of the exporting country.
