Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, 14, 1974 'SUGAR ADS TELL HALF THE STORY' VICTORIA (CP) Consumer Services Ministei Phyllis Young said Friday full-page advertisements placed in newspapers by the Western Canadian sugar industry tell only half the story about the jump in sugar prices. The minister said in a news release the adver- tisements were correct in saying prices have es- calated due to crop failures in such large producing countries as Russia and Cuba. "But the fact remains that sugar prices have gone up faster in Vancouver then anywhere else in Canada." Ms. Young said there is evidence that the Western refining industry is setting its prices in an artificial manner based on eastern prices rather than reflecting B.C.'s supply and demand.

Prices today are to the consumer and to the store. Ms. Young questioned whether the effectiveness of a current boycott is the reason why the sugar industry, in the ads, urges consumers not to deny themselves "the benefits of sugar." "For heaven's sake, keep Ms. Young advised. "If prices are beginning to go down, they'll keep going down." 300 search for Moncton policemen Beef gift to aid hungry New subsidy bolsters cows OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment stepped in Friday to help cattlemen cope with the current slump in cow prices, announcing a new mil- lion subsidy program and plans to buy up million of low-grade beef for food aid.
