(CP) George Morris raises beef. As a farmer of 425 acres, Mr. Morris feels he is one of those being held unfairly responsible for the current rbe in prices of his product. "I want the people of Canada to know that I have nothing to do with the price. "If anybody wants to blame us then must tell them that labor, in our particular field, is the stumbling block. "I'd be okay if the young people wanted the same as me." SELLS IN TORONTO Mr. Morris, C4, who raises 100 head of beef cattle on his farm 12 miles south -of Chatham, Ont., says his livelihood de- pends on export to markets in Toronto. "Lately, it has not been too good. "I've got mud on my shoes and it's the real farm life. "I can't get anybody to fill those shoes. "Young people today would rather live on welfare or draw unemployment insurance than work on a farm." Mr. Morris said the main rea- son for high prices for meat on the market today is the high cost of labor and feed grain, most of which is imported from the West. Mr. Morris, who came to this area from High River, Alta., when he was 10 years old, said Ontario farmers are facing a critical period. WILL SELL COWS If Ontario beef producers con- tinued to face a North Ameri- can boycott, they would sell cows producing the calves for market, he said. "They'll (the consumers) feel the real pinch in three years. "They'll be in real trouble then." Mr. Morris said the farmer, for many years, has suffered from low wholesale prices to retailers, and yet is criticized when, for the first time, his in- come improves. "That's the main reason that I say we can no longer attract people to our industry. This is what eventually will kill us. "We cannot afford to pay for labor like labor wants us to pay." He added: "Unions are a bunch of cry- babies. Why don't they come and look at us. Somebody has to produce the food." APRIL 5th TO 7th jflfe f Seek grain pact PORTLAND, Ore.
