Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, Dcccmbor 15, 1970 THE IE7HEKIDGE REPAID Edible oil price increase cleared OTTAWA (CP) Recent price increases for edible oi products by major manufactur- ers in Canada were clearly less than cost increases, the federa prices 'and incomes commission reported today. It said that while prices for margarine were about 16 pei cent higher last October than the average price through 1969 the cost of the edible oils going into the product were about 50 per cent higher. The commission report was to cover the eight Canadian manu- facturers who account for 90 per cent of the national market. But Kraft Foods of Canada Ltd., one of the biggest, "refused to provide all of the financial data on costs and profits the commis- sion report said. The commission said today it told Kraft that it would use powers available to it under the federal Inquiries Act if the com- pany did not give the informa- tion voluntarily. Kraft then agreed to supply the informa- tion and the commission said it would cover Kraft in a separate report to be issued later. AGREED TO POLICY The commission noted Kraft was represented at the confer- ence last February at which in- dustry agreed to keep price in- creases below cost increases to aid the commission's anti-infla- tion drive. Margarine, shortening and salad oils are the main products in the edible oil field. The vege- table, animal and marine oils that go into them account for about 75 per cent of total manu- facturing costs and just less than 50 per cent of the manufac- turer's selling price, the com- mission report said.

In the fall of 1968, Uie repo said, large crops in Europe i creased the world supply of oi bearing seeds and prices d clined. By the third quarter c 1969, however, "it had becom apparent that the 19C9 crop wa relatively small in a number i European countries and worl prices began to rise sharply." By last October, prices wer running more than 50 per cen above the 1969 average. Each of the seven companie covered in the study compile with the agreement to ho' price increases below cost in creases, the report said. The seven companies are Canada Packers Ltd.; Monarc Fine Foods Ltd.; S t a n d a r Brands Ltd.; Procter and Gam We Co. of Canada Ltd.; Canad Starch Co.

Donald McDougald of Vancou- ver, author of a study commis- siosed by Swan-Wooster Engi- neering for the Kootenay and Elk Railway Co., said the north- western Idaho, Oregon, and western a power shor- tage that is growing by six per cent a year. "This means that these states need to double their supply of power every 12 Mr. McDougald said. Thermal coal resources that would meet such a demand are i to be found in B.C., Alberta and' Saskatchewan. The provinces have combined resources of some 118 billion tons of coal. Mr. McDougald's testimony supported an application by Ko- otenay and Elk to slu'p coal mined in southeastern British Columbia about 90 miles south to the Canada-U.S. border to connect with a U.S. rail line for shipment west through Mon- tana, Idaho and Washington be- fore re-entering B.C. for ship- ment to Japan from the Roberts Bank superport. The applicants contend they have a substantial market for thermal layer of coal that lies above coking coal re- quired by Japan for their steel the Pacific north- western U.S. Their aplication, opposed by CP Rail, asks permission to allow Koolenay and Elk, which has no rail lines at present, to build a line crossing a CP Rail track and connecting with Bur- lington Northern Inc. near the B.C.-Montana border. The line would be used to transport thermal coal to the power li u n g r y northwestern stales and coking coal to Rob- ert's Bank for shipment to Japan. CP Rail is expected to argue that they could have similar ac- cess to the U.S. thermal coal market by extending a line into the area. The Canadian company says the Kootenay and Elk proposal would divert coal shipments 30 rinks complete at Natal NATAL, B.C.

In the C event the Bob Keit- the event with second place going to the Earl Schmidt rink of Coleman. away from CP Rail lines al- ready in Hie B.C. mining area. Kootenay and Elk say their action is necessary because of high shipping rales charged by CP Rail. Koolenay and Elk argue that any CP Rail route to the U.S. would be "to circuitous" to bo economical. "The direct Kootonay and Elk route is an indispensable gate- way for marketing coal in Mon- tana and other Pacific north- western the company said in its testimony.
