Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 -mi LffflUIDCI HUAIB M, Tories Spy New Faults In Govt. Grain Bill Act OTTAWA (CP) Conserva- tive speakers cUImed in the Commons Tuesday to have spied yet another thrust towards UDControlM power by the gov- ernment in the form of nor grain-grading repfiations coo- laiaed in a sweeping reviaon'of the Canada Grain Act. The grain bill, later given sec- cod reading asd seat to commit- tee, has been described by Agri- culture Minister, H. A. Olson an effort to give Canada greater flexibility on the, world wheat market. It would permit the govern- ment to Introduce a pfoWn-rat- iflg system for wheat, making (he Canadian product more competitive among protein-con- scious customers in Europe and Japan. At present grain stand- ards are written directly into the Canada Grain Act. The bill also would ranoti- the board of grain commis- sioners as a new and more pow- erful grain commission with in- creased controls over the move- ment and marketing of grain. 'The Conservatives, while not denying the need for a new grading system, protested the plan to remove control over grain standards from the Juris- diction of the Commoni itself. TOO MUCH POWER Gerald Baldwin (PC-Peace River) claimed the biH would ve excessive power to the new cnmission and tbe agiiculture unuter in re-classiryiag grain. would be able to use the power without proper checks to mtert iije interest of producers and would be able to extend >ir authority to seed wheat and othef grains, he said. Auditor-General To Retain Power OTTAWA (CP) Min- ister Trudeau assured opposi- tion MPi Tuesday that the gov- ernment would not interfere "with the Doo-partisan role" of Maxwell Hen- derson. Mr. Trudean wai peppered wih questions in the Commons about any action be might take against Mr. Henderson. Th'omai H, Bell (PC-SL John-Lancaster) asked the prime minister for assurances he would not appoint "another political hack" to the position of auditor-general. James McGrtth John's East) asked the gorcra- ment not to alttr, reduce or water down the powen of Mr. Henderson. Mr. Trudeau said there would be no Interference with Mr Henderson's 'noo-partlsu role.' 'Earlier in the day tbe Cam- mere public accounts commit tee asked its steering committee to look into criticism by some about Hi Henderson.

The scheme is o encourage farmers to move and into summer-falknr this but, Mr. Homer wheat grown on (be land next ear will have a low protein content. Arnold Peters Timis- kaming) called on Ibe govern- ment to promote creation of an ntemab'onal grading sj'stem to enable fanners to grow wheat acceptable to all customers. tfeanwiule, be said, he would like to know what the world market wants In terms of pro- ein cmlent. VOICE RESERVATIONS Other reservations about the >ill were eipiastd by Richard R. Soulham (PC-Qu'Appefle- Hoose Monrlain) who urged the government to engage in quiet diplomacy with U.S. President Richard Nixon to restore the standing of the International Wheat Agreement; and Jack Bigg Pembina) who [aimed toe government sboul press on to assist creation of a world food bank which would provide surplus foods to me hungry nations of toe world.
