Outgoing BCFGA president alleges racism
Kirpal Boparai had less than a month left in his term, but his tenure was dogged by controversy.
In October, the Okanagan Tree Fruit Cooperative revoked his membership, and its members passed a motion trying, unsuccessfully, to get him to resign.
Boparai says he stepped down because he made the changes he wanted to make, but in the following audio package, he tells Daybreak he felt there was an undercurrent of racism.
As well, hear from vice president Jeet Dukhia about allegations of racism. He now takes over as president of the BCFGA until the elections next month.
Daybreak host Chris Walker also spoke with Fred Steele, who is running to become the next president of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association and Amarjit Lali, a younger Indo Canadian grower who is running for the position of Regional Director in the upcoming B.C. Fruit Growers' Association election.
