Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ________________________ lolunlny, April 15, 1975 THE IETHBBIDGB HERALD 21 Rapeseed glory fades a little Alberta seeks better share of Canadian sugar market THE HERALD I.oglslrilurc Uiti'riiii EDMONTON Alberta Is pressing Ottawa to give local sugar producers a larger stiare of the Canadian market, Agri- culture Minister Hugh Homer said Friday in tlio legislature. UOUK Miller fSC Taljer- Warncr) charged in tlie ques- lion period ttiat 5 per cent of the sugar consumed in Canada is imported. Outside the house, Mr. Miller said the Canadian government has never hid on the world sugar market, preferring in- stead to have surplus sugar from other countries 'dumped' here at low prices. Canadians pay such a low price for sugar from foreign countries lhat the government prefers to subsidize sugar pro- ducers rather than help them find markets, However, in 1971 for tlie first time In memory, local sugar sold so well that (he federal government paid no subsidy, he said. EDMONTON (CP) It may be near midnight for Canada's Cinderella crop as Prairie pro- ducers apparently intend to plant 37 per cent less rapesced this year than they did in 1971. Last year, Prairie farmers planted a record 5.4 million acres, resulting in a bumper 100-million-bushe! crop. Al- though prices were depressed early (Ills year with a 10-million bushel carryover, the market rebounded early in Match. Statistics Canada estimates Prairie acreage will be reduced to 3.4 million acres from 5.4 million last year but still well above the 2.1 million acres grown during the 1966-70 period. Tlie figures could change drastically by the time farmers are able to start planting. Rapesecd production has grown fantastically in Canada during the last four years. First grown during the Second World War, on about acres, it was used by the navy as a mar- ine oil because it could cling to steam or water-washed metal. This market disappeared aftei the war and the crushed oil was used in cooking or as a salad oil. USED IN MARGARINE In the 1960s scientists evolvcc a process in which the oil couk be used in margarine, hu within the last two years con cern was expressed in Europe that the oil's acid caused hear damage In animal tests. Now, varieties low in erucii ncid, or free of it, arc available and the switch to these varielie Is expected to be completed b> 1974. J. S. Carmichael, an econo mist of the federal agricultur department, says althougl world demand for edible oi: Feeds will continue to increase there is a possibility world sup plies could increase faster, an' lower prices would result. "There seems little reaso why an improved product sue as rapeseed should not sell i H. H. Smith Ltd. Customs Broker COUTTS Phon. 34WBM reater volume providing anadian rapeseed is compe vcly priced." Mr. Carmichael said It has een a year of decision concern- g tlie use ot tow-crucic-ocid eed in future years. "It appears lhat low-eruclc- cid seed will be the only seed ccepted by the Canadian food nduslry In' the near future and ml importing countries also -e prepared to switch."
