Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuetday, 10, 1974 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX OPTICAL raiscRirnoN to- Miniely in Ottawa Alberta provincial treasurer Gordon Miniely, left, talks informally with Ontario treasurer John White before the federal and provincial finance ministers got down to work at the government conference centre Monday in Ottawa. Calgary mother remains in Canada CALGARY Evangeline Godron ot Calgary said Monday night she plans to "tie up a few loose ends" in Montreal and then move to the Yukon to finish her nurses training, following a decision by an immigration appeal board which will allow her and her four children to re- main in Canada as landed im- migrants. The board, in a ruling released earlier Monday, granted Mrs. Godron and her 12 year old daughter Fidelia landed immigrant status on humanitarian grounds. Immigration officials ordered that Mrs. Godron be deported after she illegally entered the country in 1971. Mrs. Godron, who has three Canadian born children, said she was born in Calgary but could not obtain a birth cer- tificate to back up her claim. No reason was given for the dismissal of the deportation order but Mrs. Godron's lawyer said it was probably under the humanitarian con- sideration section of the Im- migration Act. Consumer checks turn up fraudulent practices Companies convicted of charges OTTAWA (CP) A Canada Safeway Ltd. food store in Saskatoon recently was ordered to pay a fine because it was convicted of selling below grade fruit and vegetables. The Brothers Colangelo Fruit Market at Agincourt, Ont, was ordered to pav a similar fine for sell- ing adulterated coffee, and the Marche 0. St. Francois Inc., at Kateville, Que., also was told to come up with a for selling substituted meat. The three convictions are among 29 resulting from consumer affairs department inspections during the third quarter this year. In a news release Monday, the department said the convictions involved 70 charges under various federal acts aimed at protecting consumers from fraud, un- safe products and false weights and measures. The department first began publishing summaries of prosecutions after the second year. From April until the end of September, department inspections have led to 64 convictions involving 143 charges under acts administered by consumer affairs. Consumers Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet said he hopes publication of the prosecutions will act as a "deterrent to undesireable practices in the mar- ketplace." The three fines were the largest of the totalled out by courts across the country. Lowest penalty was to Robert Kavanagh and Gerard Daigneault who run the Metro Station de Service Enregistre at Laval, Que. They were fined for us- ing a fuel gauge that is not legal as a trade device. Fourteen of the firms were convicted under the Food and Drugs Act; another 14 under the Weights and Measures Act. The Saskatoon Safeway Store was con- victed under the Canada Agriculture Product Stand- ards Act. Among the firms convicted of selling short measures of milk under the Food and Drugs Act was the Com- munity Dairy of Kapuskasing Ltd., Kapuskasing, Ont., Fellinger's Meat Market, Regina, was fined for altering the composition of meat. Firms convicted under the Weights and Measures Act for selling short weights: Alberta: Canadian Propane Gas and Oil Ltd., Ed- monton, fine, short weight of liquid propane gas. British Columbia: Ronlen Supermarket Ltd., Golden, fine, meat. Also convicted under the Weights and Measures Act were Bela Docza and Rene von Pander, who were each fined for using illegal scales at the Gastown Farmer's Market at Oliver, B.C. NFU officers SASKATOON (CP) The National Farmers Union (NFU) board of directors has re elected Blake Sanford of Kingsville, Ont., Harold Proven of Basswood, Man., and William Dascavich of Mundare, Alta., to the ex- ecutive of the NFU for 1975. Will that be cash or charge? Before you answer that question when you go shopping this Christmas, remember this fact. The percentage rate on credit accounts now stands at about 20% per year. So charge accounts are, in fact, high interest loans. We want you to think aoout that before you say, CONSUMER AFFAIRS P.O.

The announcement was made Monday at a joint forces-fisheries department news conference following the return of the destroyer An- napolis, the first Canadian warship designated as an inspection vessel by the In- ternational Commission for the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries ICNAF, formed by Canada, the United States, the Soviet Union and European coun- tise fishing in the Northwest Atlantic, sets up rules and quotas for various species of fish. Douglas Johnston, fisheries department director for the Atlantic region, said the federal government and ICNAF had approved the designations and member countries were being in- formed. However the destroyers must have fisheries officers, designated as inspectors, on board before they can carry out boardings of foreign vessels. Rear-Admiral Douglas Boyle. Commander of Maritime Command, said con- sideration is being given to having some military officers trained and designated as inspectors. He said it would be unlikely that all 12 destroyers would be used as patrol vessels at the same time, but that up to six might be assigned to fisheries duties is needed. Mr. Johnston said having all the destroyers designated would, in effect, provide an additional full-time patrol vessel to augment the capabilities of the three fisheries inspection patrol vessels. The destroyers' new role follows a year of growing co- operation between the two departments. Maritime Com- mand Argus and Tracker patrol planes have being doing regular surveillance flights over fishing grounds. On separate occasions last summer destroyers Skeena and Algonquin checked buildups of foreign fleets and were given credit for keeping foreign fishermen within their quotas. However, they were unable to carry out boardings. Inflation threatens grain EDMONTON Infla- tion is threatening the Cana- dian grain industry's ability to perform and the federal government should take ac- tion, Dobson Lea, president of Unifarm, said Monday. "We could be pricing ourselves out of the Mr. Lea said in an interview at the Alberta farm organizations's fifth an- nual convention. He cited settlements made with west coast grain handlers and federal grain inspectors as a threat to the industry's future. "I would suggest that if peo- ple expect to be paid more for :he same amount of work, it just doesn't work. We have to lave increased productivity to match the increased produc- tion costs, but reports across !anada indicate productivity s standing still." In his speech he attacked he federal government for nadequate labor legislation and interference in the bargaining process. "Ottawa intervened in the bargaining process (with grain handlers) by suggesting what the high level of settle- ment should be." He urged the federal government to get tough in negotiations with six groups coming up in the next nine months, including longshoremen in Quebec, St. Lawrence Seaway workers, west-coast stevedores and tug operators, railway non operating workers and engineers and grain handlers at Thunder Bay and Quebec. If the trend set by recent settlements continues through these groups farmers will be seriously affected, he warned.
