LocatedAt: Trade p for Albe A proposal lo remove trade restrictions on farm products among Prairie provinces by Feo. 1, 1971, could prove damaging to Alberta's egg industry, Reg Chisholm, president of Southalta Produce Ltd. Lethbridge, said today. Such a move would only be advantageous to said Tta egg wan and Manitoba which pur-poselv produce surplus quantities of eggs, said Mr. Chisholm. The premiers of the three Prairie provinces agreed Friday at a closed session of the Prairie Economic Council held in Winnipeg, to make every effort to remove interprovin-cial trade restrictions on industr others farm products. Mr. Chisholm said if trad strictions were dropped, berta producers would forced lo take lower price their eggs to meet compe from Saskatchewan and 1 toba. "Alberta producers ca afford to take any less they are getting now if hope to sustain a living." The price paid to prcdi in Alberta for a dozen eg 39 cents for Grade A larg cents for A medium, 16 for A small and 19 cent; Grade E. Mr. Chisholm maintains producers in the other inces who are selling egg eight to 10 cents figures cannot be m( money and may be subsi by large diversified cor] tions. As far as a solution to problem goes, Mr. Chishol undecided, but he does no lieve national marketing lation Bill C176 would I cure-all.

Several of the seven submissions made public so far (more have been received but have not yet been submitted to city council) have suggested that what was termed by one writer as a "veiled threat" on the part of local industries to relocate if sewage charges became too high might also apply to the ordinary citizen. A point made by industry in the brief submitted to the city legarding the proposed sewer service bylaw is that if the distribution of the cost of the new secondary sewage treatment plant places too heavy' a load on them, they might have to curtail expansion or move to other centres. The submissions from Lethbridge residents point out that the average citizen is also faced with mounting costs, and higher sewage charges could well result in people moving to smaller towns in the district in order to cut down on expenses. It is also suggested that industry can always pass increased costs on to the consumer, whereas the consumer must try to meet these, plus the increased sewer charge, on a more or less fixed income. One writer says the "threat" on the part of industries to relocate is an empty one. He uoints out that there is no evidence (admitted by industries own consultants) that t hike firms have left Calgary for Edmonton, although the latter has lower sewage rates and no record rates being a major factor in decisions by industries to locate in a particular city. The plight of the pensioner is mentioned in several of the letters. One pensioner, after listing his available income, forecasts a "very bleak future" for okiei property owners if the city adopts the proposed S3. 25 domestic rate. The new bylaw may be coming before city council in the not-too-distant future. Tom Nutting, city manager, recently told council the sooner it is .dealt with the better. He said industry should be given a definite understanding as soon as possible of what would be required of it in order that the firms can plan ahead for the installation of pollution control equipment such as holding tanks. If the tanks, which allow the discharge to be spread over a 24-hour period, are not installed the city may find the new sewage plant operating at full capacity when it opens next word of mission A spokesman for Kaiser Resources Ltd. said today he had no knowledge of representatives of the Japanese steel industry including Western Canada on the itinerary of their visit to Canada in January.
