Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBKIDGE HERAID Thurjday, Docornliur 10, 1970 Nation strides forward to unity says Cadieux PARIS (CP) Canada has made great strides toward na- tional unity despite the recent terrorist crisis in Quebec prov- ince, Leo Cadicux, Canadian ambassador to Paris, said Wednesday. "The I ruth, the historical truth." lie told members of the France-America Committee and the France-Canada Institute, "is tliat in spite of all the divisions and crises we have passed through, we have not only held Reserves act OK j O> .8. i A REGFNA (CP) Western cost of grain storage is a pub farmers feel the federal gov- ernment is unfair in proposing to eliminate payment for stor- age of w h e a I, E. R. Turner, president of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, said Tuesday. He said in a statement Ottawa wants to get rid of the Tem- porary Wheat Reserves Act, because payments under it "distort the desirability of pro- ducing wheat in relation to other crops." Payments are made to the Canadian wheat board for in excess of 178 million bushels that is in commercial storage at the end of each crop year. Mr. Turner said creation of the act showed acceptance of the principle that some of the ECC caution on spending accepted EDMONTON (CP) Pre- mier Harry Strom says the Economic Council of Canada thinks Alberta is in a "very strong situation." The premier was speaking following a meeting between the Alberta cabinet and ECC members including chairman Dr. John Smith, that Mr. Strom described as "significant." He said the cabinet agrees with the ECC's caution in its annual report released in Sep- tember of the need to keep gov- ernment expenditures to a minimum in health, education and welfare. The premier called for a re- vision of federal regional incentive programs lo help in- dividuals instead of corpora- tions, the removal of tariffs and efforts to improve a guar- anteed Canadian market in impciting countries. Ho said he agreed with Dr. Smith's assessment that the federal government's fiscal policies have created a form of medium-term stability. lie responsibility. "Producers reject any more to eliminate that principle Iron- national agricultural he said. "It's nonsense to blame the Wheat Reserves Act for all the things it has been blamed for, and it's also nonsense to sug- gest that farmers will some- how- be better off if the go' eminent no longer assumes a fair share of the cost of carry- ing adequate reserves of grain in Canada." The act has been accused of leading to elevator congestion, overbuilding of storage space and of encouraging wheat pro- duction, he said. "No fanner ever grew wheat just because there was a federal policy that looked af- ter storage of an amount ex- ceeding 178 million bushels in commercial position. Storage facilities were built because of farmer choice and farmer de- mand, not because of federal policy. Elevators became con- gested because of the existing quota system, not because of the act. "The Canadian business community and the Canadian government surely must rec- ognize after the last few years of experience, the desirability of a national grains reserve program." firm but have grown and pros- pered toRcllicr." It was the former. defence minister's first official speech since he was named ambassa- dor to France last October. Mr. Cadicux cited progress in the development of the Cana- dian North as an example of a country working together. "There have been divisions and contradictions, but there have also been successes: Con- federation itself and total inde- pendence in tlie Commonwealth. 11 uiui'c riaVu vccil udgcuica and conflicts, there have been grand achievements: The con- struction of a railway network development of air travel, radk and television in the two officia languages across Canada and the growth of our indtistria complex and our integral eco- nomic system." "All of Canada belongs to al' Canadians, whether they speak French or English." The battle over Quebec sepa- ratism would not be won "by those who shout the loudest, who publish the most manifes- tos, who are most ready to brand their adversaries as trai- tors, but by a conquest of hearts and souls." Mr. Cadieux said Canada's distinct peo- ples" within the same bounda- aries makes it the stage for an experience of international importance. Also, French Canada had been launched into the modern world, with a Montreal subway system, great highways, the ipant Manicouagan hydroelec- tric project and factories along the St. Lawrence River. Pointing to recent government measures to establish bilingual- sm throughput Canada, the am- >assador said "never before hi America has the French fact known such vitality." A text of the ambassador's speech was released to the press before delivery. Maritime law expert scores pollution measure OTTAWA (CP) Wide pow-1 use that enabled precise ship ers proposed for the cabinet and traffic control, pollution control officers were enteed Tuesday by Uie man- LARGEST DUNE The largest sand dune on the United States Atlantic Coast is Jockey Ridge, rising more than 330 feet near Nags Head, N.C. time law section of the Cana- j dian Bar Association. Representatives of the section appeared before the Commons pollution committee with their analysis of the safety and anti- pollution changes proposed by the government to the Canada Shipping Act. At the same time, they en- tered a plea for urgent steps to establish land based radar con- trol over vessels approaching Canada's shores. F. 0. Gerity, one of the coun- try's top experts on maritime law and a former naval officer, told the committee that even during the Second World War sophisticated equipment was in He figured Canada could! set up a system to control vessels bound at least for such major oil-receiving ports as Halifax, Saint John, St. John's, Montreal and several west coast points. He said the Lion's Gate Bridge at Vancouver has effec- tive surveillance radar. What was needed was radar to enable constant tracking of vessels from at least 40 miles off the coast. Land based radar, supple- mented by ship radar and ship- to-shore communications, was the best way to prevent such marine disasters as the sinking earlier this year of the tanker Arrow. The Arrow disaster and the multi-million-dollar cleanup job arising from tons of spilled oil led in part to the govern- ment's proposed legislation. Mr. Gerity and Arthur Stone, chairman of the bar association committee, said the cabinet is being given too wide powers to declare what is a pollutant. In addition, pollution control officers under the bill might be called on to exercise powers be- ywd the territorial sea and con- tiguous zones, running into con- flict with long-standing mari- time laws affecting vessels on the high seas. The maritime law section also criticized liability for damages proposed in the bill, especially sections that would make the cargo owner responsible to an unlimited extent where he would have no control whatever over the actions of the captain and crew of the vessel at sea.
