October 4, 1974

Mr. Bob Wenman (Fraser Valley West):

Mr. Speaker, could the Minister of Agriculture please tell the House and the people of British Columbia who are currently paying not 84 cents but 94 cents a dozen for eggs, whether or not many of the supposedly rotten eggs shipped all the way from Newfoundland to British Columbia for final destruction were not actually rotten but rather many were in a whole and usable form and declared rotten or cracked in order to justify their destruction. Furthermore, in view of the fact that major plants processing raw eggs to powdered eggs were and continue to operate at less than 50 per cent capacity, is the minister prepared to purchase or subsidize the processing of current or future surpluses to ensure that this despicable waste does not continue to occur?
