OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons agriculture committee, in fairness to humanity." must travel throughout Canada to hear the views of producers on the government's proposed marketing legislation. Jack Hor- ncr said Tues- day. During a typically volcanic fitting, the committee heatedly discussed the merits and de- merits of crossing the country to allow agriculture producers and their representatives the chance to discuss bill abling legislation designed to 2ive federal co-ordination to provincial agencies set up to en- sure more orderly marketing of various agricultural with the committee. Mr. Homer urged the com- mittee not to "make jackasses of themselves" by changing their previously slated position that a cross-country trip is nec- essary. The committee had discussed travelling during three sessions ?nd has received permission from the Commons t such a trip. "In all fairness to humanity we have to travel to hear the different views on this legisla- Mr. llorner said. OLSON OPPOSES DELAY Earlier, Agriculture Minister II. A. Olson told the committee it is important that the legisla- tion first be passed by Parlia- ment in order that there be a structure to resolve immediate problems in the marketini; of farm goods. "We need a legal structure on which to put specific marketing Mr. Olson said. If the bill was not imple- mented for the "interminable length of time" needed to hear all producer groups, the govern- ment would be doing the farm- ers a disservice. "Bill C-176 is the best com- promise that can be said Mr. Olson. It bad the ap- proval of many groups, includ- ing most provincial ministers of agriculture, concerned with the spreading o f unco-ordinated marketing practices. To facilitate passage of the bill Mr. Olson presented nine amendments designed to pacify some criticism voiced by dif- frent agriculture groups since Ihe legislation was first intro- in March. 1970. The amendments would ex- clude beef producers from the provisions of the marketing pro- posals and set up an appeal pro- cedure for [huso unhappy about actions by marketing boards. The appeal boards would have the power to receive and inves- ligate any complaints resulting from the legislation, Mr. Olson said. The amendments also would set up a provision for appoinl- menls and elections to various provincial commodity market- ing agencies.

The new York City artist can- celled the exhibition of 44 works after gallery director Jean Boggs wired him that he could not open it with a reading. Gallery spokesman Richard I Graburn said the wire was sent after the gallery heard Andre might read the terrorist mani- festo. The Front de Liberation du Quebec has been outlawed in Canada since Oct. 16, after using two kidnappings to get, among other things, publicity for its manifesto. Graburn said the gallery was unable to confirm Andre's inten- tion but decided to be on the safe side. make (he appointments. A legal clause (hat outlined both fines and jail sentences for persons convicted of offences under the legislation was amended to contain only fines. Albert Douglas boia) said Mr. Olson's amend- ments proved that many people and groups had already made representations to the commil- lee and that it was now the committee's duty to "gel on with Ihe business" of passing the bill. Travelling to the various re- gions would not clear up any confusion. It would only hold up passage of a needed piece of legislation. "T h e minister's statement this morning was the clincher." Other Conservative members countered with additional rea- sons for more extended hear- ings on the legislation. Jack Murta told the committee the bill "crossed all political lines" and "produ- cers would like to air their view to the committee."
