Thomas Alexander Crerar (Minister of Agriculture)

Unionist (Liberal)

Mr. ORERAR:

We can absolutely control our manufacture in Canada by our own system of inspection. We obviously cannot send our inspectors to the places where these goods are manufactured in the United States. We can examine their regulations as to the purity of the article manufactured in the United States, and if we are satisfied that those regulations sufficiently guard the purity of the goods, then we can admit the article under the certification that it is manufactured under such regulations.

Topic:   MEAT AND CANNED FOODS ACT AMEND MENT.
