Mr. Farmer said there has been a tendency for people to believe they can drive after drinkinc if they are tinder the legal limit set in the breath analysis legislation in tho criminal code. "But the breath analysis leg- islation means that having more than 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 mitlilitrcs of your hlood is in itself a criminal offence. "The legislation still says that the impaired driver is commit- ting an offence even if ho has not reached the M per cent i level. ''The simple reason is that j many people can become im- i paired below this limit." 1 Mr. Farmer's statement sup- j ported a campaign launched by the .safely council this month nimcfl at a leading cause of traffic accidents the adult soc'al drinker. The campaign is aimed at re-establishing the host guest i relationship and emphasizing i the responsibilities of all who drive after drinking. "Traditionally the good host has provided his guests with more than enough to eat and drink.

The" question had been posed by Jack-Mtirta (PC who wanted to know if the gov- ernment was giving any con- sideration to the suggestion. The effect of MP Olson's minister of agriculture, reply vas that the suggestion is be- ing considered, hut not to any great extent, and that it isn't considered as any revelation to the government or the wheat board. Ihese and other questions related lo the best method of selling grain were considered by the marketing committee of the Canadian wheat All'. Olson said. 'Of course, these matters are being constantly consider- ed. The board is aware of this most recent recommendation jrid assures me it is constantly examining Ihe position it is liking with respect to the wis- dom of having persons in of- fices aboard." Mi. Murta persisted, asking if Mr. Olson recognized the ne- opposes measure UNITED NATIONS (CP) Israel says the General Assem- s latest resolution on the Middle East peace talks has only prolonged the deadlock. The assembly voted 79 to 7 rith 3d abstentions Monday to call for resumption of the indi- rect talks through UN mediator Gurniar Jarring and for Israel's commitment to withdraw from occupied Egyptian territory. Canada was among those ab- staining. Canada Ambassador Yvon Beaulne said Canada re- grets it could not accept any of the resolutions submitted be- cause they present no realistic basis for renewed peace talks. "A more positive outcome would have been dependent upon a substantial display of the parties of readiness to move forward from fixed positions which have been the roots of the long-standing "ieaulne said. "This essential measure has been lacking; consequently our deliberations will apparently not lead to the effective reinforce- ment of peace discussions which is so urgently needed." IN DEADLOCK Israeli sources said soon after the vote: "The situation re- mains the same as it has been for the last 18 effect it just prolongs the deadlock." Egyptian Foreign Minister Mahmoud Riad said if Israel re- fuses to heed the resolution, "it will be isolating itself from the world." "We are offering them peace and they are refusing Riad asserted. Foreign Minister Abba Eban of Israel said before the vote was taken that his main objec- tion to the proposal was its call for a withdrawal commitment. "If the negotiation is to be effective, it must be he said. "Neither party can ask the other to accept its own views and proposals in Bhutto calls for support of French UNITED NATIONS (CP) It's not easy to compare events in Canada with those on the Indian .subcontinent, hut. the foreign minister of Pakistan managed it. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was call- ing in the Security Council for French support of the Paki- stani position in the India- Pakistan war when he said: "When your great former president (Charles de Gaulle) wont to Canada all he said was "Vive le Quebec and such a storm was cre- ated. "It. was not. said in the con- text, of secession, but the, whole world was in an uproar over how President de Gaulle was interfering with the inter- n.'il affairs of other countries. "Thry (Indians) are not shouting a slogan of "Vive lo joi They arc going in tlicro with their arms, with the might, with their tanks, to over my country." cessity of a "third force" in tho narket place to promote sales of Canadian grain in around the world in addition lo :hc marketing research activi- lics now carried out by the wheat board. "Many of the comments of the mission regarding pricing and other selling activities were out of date in the sense :hat most of the things they recommend have in fact been implemented as a result of jovernment or wheat board he said. I am satisfied with the eval- uation being given by the wheat board, which watches >ricing from month to month and from place to place, and I im sure the wheat board is :loing a very competent job." Western Conservatives came out on the short end of twn other questions regarding I ;rain. Prime Minister Pierre Tru- deau said he didn't take up with U.S. President R ichard the suggestion that the wo countries should co-oper- ate to re-activiate tiie interna- ional grains agreement to es- ;ablish a floor price for He was replying lo a ques- tion by R. Qu'Appelle Moose who bad asked last, week if Mr, Trudeau would consider >lacing the item on his agenda at the U.S. discussions. Mr. Trudeau said he considered the suggestion, but didn't have a chance to act on it. .John L. Skoberg ,faw) failed in a bid to get agriculture Mr. Lang to come up with a copy of a report on the nationalization of the grain handling and transportation in- dustry. Mr. S'coborg .said the report is already in the bands of the railways and the grain compa- nies, and there didn't seem to be any reason it couldn't be tabled in the house so that western members could have a look at it, too. Mr, Lang replied that he had now given the report to pro- vincial premiers, but was not yet in a position to pi-edict when he would be able to ta- ble it in tlte House of Com- mons. Mr. Lang, however, refused to be pinned down. "We are encouraging many more forces than simply a third force in our market de- he said. "We are encouraging Canadian compa- nies interested in the export of Employers urged to accept L CJ L govt. labor law changes 8 MONTREAL (CP) Labor Mini.ster Rryce Mackasey today c in plovers to accept changes in federal labor law lhat would give unions a limited right to strike in the event of disagreement over adverse technological changes. In a speech to an industrial relations seminar here. Mr. Mackasey reviewed public dis- cuFsion of (lie proposed labor- law changes which have been under fire by management spokesmen since they were in- troduced in the Commons in June. enlightened employers will accept the philosophy of providing remedies for prob- lems created by technological change as they affect the worker." he said. "But if they will not, it could be done by di- rec! intervention." Mr. Mackasey said it is short-sighted for Canadian em- ployers lo argue that labor relations are deferent from those in other Western countries because signed Cana- dian labor contracts prohibit strikes during the life of an agreement. "This no-strike provision does not prevent Can- ada from having strikes and Mr. Mackasey said. UNREST EVIDENT The federal labor minister said social unrest evident in the growing trade union movement in Quebec is characteristic of the upheavals caused by rapid technological change. "We all agree that technologi- cal change is here to stay; the problem is finding the best and most equitable method of assim- ilating it into our system. "This is why I am suggesting to management that the only way to preserve the cornerstone of Canadian labor relations, the closed contract, is to accept the amendments to deal with tech- nological change." Last week, Mr. Mackasey told members of the Canadian Labor Congress in Ottawa that changes to be made in the labor bill before it is reintroduced in the next session of Parliament will not strike out the principle that unions must be consulted about technological innovations. In its new form, the bill would emphasize more strongly the desirability of including in collective agreements a clause dealing with the effects of tech- nological change. grain to lake a variety of steps to ensure greater access to markets we are also doing a great deal to encourage asso- ciations such as the Canadian rapeseed association to play an active role in the market- ing of Alf P. Cleave (PC Snska- loon-Biggar) attempted lo cor- ner Mr. Lang from another di- rection, asking if either he or the wheat board had under consideration the possibility of changing the basis of pricing of grain at the lower St. Law- rence ports, as specifically rec- ommended by Ihe trade mis- sion set up by the grains coun- cil. Mr. Lang replied that the government had paid for tho mission in the first place, as part of its market development program, and that the wheat board's own "very high-power- ed marketing commiltee" had recommended no change at the present time. "This is not a matter thai can be settled for all time and the wheat board has it under constant examination as he said. Further prodded by Mr, Cleave about whether or not he was acting on the trade mis- sion's recommendation that Canada meet the seasonal price changes of the European Common Market, Mr. Olson fi- nally came very close lo say- ing he felt the mission's com- ments didn't merit serious con- sideration.
