BO SASKATOON (CP) Freight rales on rapesced products clis- criminatc agaiiLst western pro- ducers and they should bo low- ered in tho public interest, Sasp katchewan AgricHlUire Minis- ter Jack Mcsser said here. He told the Coiiailiaii Trans- port Commission hearing itito i he freight rale structure on ;he rapesced oil and meal tlic freight rates put Prairie pro- cessors at a competitive disad- vantage in relation to eastern Canadian ancf foreign crush- ers. He said freight rates, as they now stand, favor "long dis- tance transfer of raw products to major consumer markets pri- or to transformation into con- sumable Four western crushing plants supported by the three Prai- rie governments have suc- cessfully applied to the CTC for a review of freight rates. The western industry argue, that high freight rates on pro- cessed rapeseed will eventually cause the processing industry to be centred in tho east. With present freight rates am! Mr. Made; Siiici determining The government's objective seems to he a SH-por-rent boost in revenues from oil. Mr. Nicklc said the govern- ment should that a substantial part nf this could come from higher revenues un- der the existing royalty slrtio what these reserves are ami a lure because of increased pro- fair price for them will require duction expected in 1972-73. On this basis, he said, it western crushers Vic able to compete only In tlic "rela- tively small, slow growth prai- rie markets for vcgelable oils and meal." ISANFItiLD The argument that disparate freight rates on rapesced o i 1 moving from the west could Iransfer (he crushing industry to eastern Canada was echoed by John Banfield, president of the Rapeseed Association of Canada. Mr, Banfield, who is also es-1 ecutive vice president of West- ern Canada Feed Processors ScllCS Ltd. of Lethbridge, said west- supermen. The assessor will re- quire knowledge and skills ranging from oil pricing to Jaw and reservoir "I don't know where they arc going to find these supermen." Bill Dickie, minister of mines and minerals, toW a Calgary news conference the govern- basis, he said, liould be possible to reduce or eliminate n tax under tho Min- eral Tax Act. Oil revenue nicnt position poses some diffi-1 i hearings scheduled ''We have pioblcms rela- tive to assessment there is no doubt, about Carl Nickle, publisher of The Daily Oil Bulletin, said a tax on reserves would he "extreme- ly difficult1' to apply because of Machin r ern producers, have stressed the necessity of terminating the disparale freight rates. As n result, of meetings with the railways certain reductions have lieen obtained, but the basic inequity continued. Despite reductions liis com- pany still was paying 79 cents a hundredweight on meal from Thunder Bay to Montreal while rapeseed purchased by Canlin, an eastern company, goes the same route for 44 cents a hun- dredweight, Mr. Bantield said. up Grain price review Winnipeg Grain WINNIPEG (CP) Rape, seed prices worked lower fol- lowing a similar trend in Chi- cago soybeans at mid-session on the Grain Ex- Noiv York stocks (Supplied By Richardson Securities of Canada) ,'ADIA V V GAS DIVIDEND NOTICES NOTfCE is heroby given that tho Boord of Directors of I his Company hnj dcclor- ed the One Hundredrh quar- terly dividend of Twenty (20c) per share payable on June 1, 1972 upon Ihe outstanding 4% P re (ere nee shares lo be paid (o the share- holders of record ot (he close of busmess on Monday, May 15. 1972.
