Norman James Macdonald Lockhart

Progressive Conservative

Mr. LOCKHART:

I do not wish to press the point, but the minute this appeared in the press this morning I received a long-distance call from the growers in my constituency pointing out that on account of the possibility that the fruit may ripen so quickly, and may be unfit to ship to Montreal or elsewhere, housewives in my constituency feel that if consideration can be given to people 400 miles away from the Niagara peninsula where the fruit is produced, then surely some consideration might be given to that very area in which it is produced. Consequently I ask the parliamentary assistant to bring the matter to the attention of the minister with a view to seeing that some consideration is given to these people, or consideration at least equal to that given to people 400 miles away from the base of supply.
