Turmoil plagues B.C. Tree Fruit Cooperative
The Okanagan Tree Fruit Cooperative is once again in the headlines.
In October, it kicked out Kirpal Boparai, the current President of the B.C.Fruit Growers Association -- revoking his membership and cancelling their contract to market his fruit.
Then at its annual general meeting, members voted in a new director and new vice president, and passed a motion that tried to force Boparai to step down.
Then last week the new board fired the CEO and operations manager.
Daybreak's Christina Low has been investigating the reasons behind the internal turmoil and explains it all to host, Chris Walker.
