TOTALLY OPPOSED Mr. UsMw told indicated that we were to- tally opposed to their policy and that we would use all the legal and constitutional authority we had to prevent the implementa- tion of that The federal interim un- veiled two weeks would alter the Canadian Wheat Board's control over the do- mestic movement of barley and feed grains that in the past have been sold through the board at prices set to be competitive with imported Un- ited States corn. Because that price often was higher than the one at which the western feed grain produc- ers sold to feed mills in the west or among the eastern livestock industry buying through the wheat board generally has paid a higher price than in the west The federal proposals are de- signed in art to redress com- plaints by livestock producers in eastern Canada that the west has an unfair advantage of a government near-monopoly. Mr. William said the federal representation at the meting was only to explain the interim not to negotiate. A full- er policy is promised for next year. they didn't feel the total polity was ac- ceptable to he said. Mr. William said a principle Involved was whether a federal program should be run by Ot- tawa or by the provinces. He said such a program would be to frus- trate in operation. Under the federal a guaranteed price will apply to barley and oats sold outside the wheat board as well as with- 'n. The Federal Agricultural Products Board will be given authority to buy feed grains sep- arately from the wheat board at a price not below the wheat board's initial and without quota restrictions. The federal products board will be able to sell the grain in eastern Canada at the going rate in the known commonly as the offboard price. The products to- gether with the Canadian Live- stock Feed will deter- mine the off-board price. Another part of the federal plan modifies freight assist- ance on the shipping of feed grains and freight rates for the to create more equity across the country. Some western farmers have maintained that the higher price to eastern livestock producers for feed grain is be- cause the westerners have big- ger freight'rate costs in mar- keting their beef and pork in the east.
