Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDOe HlRALD TUMdiy, Flbruiry 4, 19TJ Senator stresses importance of irrigation project By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) A veteran senator from North Dakota is prepared to ask Congress not to allow money to be spent on any portion of the controversial Garrison irrigation project that would harm Canada, an aide reported Monday. Senator Milton Young (Rep. most influential con- gressional backer of the million project, regards the commitment to protect Cana- dian rights as his press assistant, William Wright, said after speaking with the senator. "It's possible that language could end up in the appropria- tion bill, to the effect that none of the funds could be used for construction that would adversely affect Wright'said, relay- ing what he reported were the senator's views. He confirmed as "substan: tially correct" a report by Ca- nadian MP Dean Whiteway that Senator Young last week accepted his suggestion that the appropria- tion legislation for which Congress provides the funds for the pro- used as a vehicle to prevent pollution of the Souris and Red Rivers before they flow north into Manitoba. Whiteway said his agree ment with Young, 77, involve getting the Canadia government's notice i writing that it was satisfiec there would be no violation o U.S. treaty obligations in an extension of the Garriso project to the Souris and Re River basins. "It would be contingent o our (Canada's interpretation" of the 1901 Boundary Waters Treaty which Ottawa has invoked t protest the continuation of th project, Whiteway said. This was important becaus there were differences opinion about what con stituted pollution significan enough to violate the treatj he added. The Garrison project, ap proved by Congress in 1965 t irrigate some acres o North Dakota farmland, no1 is about one-quarter com pleted. The U.S. insists that sec lions of the project now unde construction and for severa years to come, will not affec Canadian waters. Meanwhile negotiations are being con ducted with Ottawa to try t overcome Canadian objec lions to the project. Rapeseed growth rate questioned MEXICO CITY, Mex. (CP) Merils of Ihe sharp growlh in Western Canada's rapeseed crushing to double lo 50 million bushels before questioned Monday by A. M. Runciman, president of United Grain Growers. "Unless farmers grow 100 million bushels of.rapeseed to cover the domestic crush and current exports, Canada will lose its 40-to 50-million-bushel exporl market because domeslic crushers will outbid the export he told about 350 delegates to the an- nual meeting of the Rapeseed Association of Canada. During the last three years, rapeseed production has been about 50 million bushels an- nually, despite the highest prices in history. Domestic crush this year is expected lo reach 15 million bushels. "If. exporl interest lags, competition .for rapeseed drops, and the price drops, farmers will not be protected by demand from a world market, they will depend on domestic demand only." Mr. Runciman said the situ- ation will be serious if Canada loses export markets and then suffers a repeat of 1971 "when we have greatly increased acreage and production." He also suggested the domestic crushers would have trouble disposing of the oil ani meal "since the domestii market can't possibly absor! the oil and meal, and mucl will have to be exported." He said prices will have ti be low for Canadian crusher to break into new markets and since many countrie prefer to purchase whole rapeseed, the crushers migh be forced to pay lower price! to growers in order t< preserve Iheir crushing mar gin. Mr. Runciman called for 75 million bushels of rapeseei production, and predicted: "Next year, though, and for the rest of the 1970s, we wil need to produce at least 101 million bushels if we are to re tain exporl markels." He said low average yields are the main production prota lem and suggested the rapeseed association should make yield improvement a research and extension priority. The three-day meeting at- tended by Canadian rapeseed growers and members of the grain trade, along with 70 Mexican observers, concludes Wednesday. Life insurance cases decided on definitions TORONTO (CP) Ar- bitrator H. D. Brown used definitions of family relations to decide on awards in two cases involving bereavement pay and a life insurance policy, respectively. In one case, Mr. Brown had lo decide whether a conlracl which provided bereavement pay on Ihe dealh of a parent or parenls-in-law enlitled an em- ployee of Alias Steel Co. to payment when his stepfather, whom he had not been brought up by, died. The company had challeng- ed Ihe employee's claim to the pay. Mr. Brown ruled that dic- tionary definitions of parent, stepfalher and in-law entitled the employee to the pay. In a second case, Mr. Brown had to decide whether a di- vorced woman, living alone and without dependents, was the head of a family. An agreement between Par- nell Foods Ltd. and Local 414, Retail, Wholesale and Depart- ment Store Union, provided life insurance for male employees and heads of fami- lies and for all other eli- gible employees. A claim was made by a beneficiary of the woman, her 40-year-old son. Mr. Brown looked at defini- tions of family and ruled that "it cannot be found that a single person is a head of her- self and she alone constitutes a unfitly j' Women employees not heads of families as defined in the agreement receive a lesser amount of insurance, he said. trucks sold to Iran LONDON (AP) The British Leyland Motor Co. an- nounced 'a agree- ment here to supply Iran with more than. trucks. The order follows a order to sell the Iranians 300 double-decker buses. All the trucks will be assembled in Iran by an Ira- nian company in which British Leyland has a share. British Leyland has made several recent inroads into the Mideast market, including plans to build a plant in Egypt and a deal to sell Land Rover vehicles to Iraq. Leyland also is sending a team of officials to Japan this week lo complete an-agree- ment with Toyota, the Japanese car makers, on a multi-million-dollar plan un- der which Toyota would market Jaguars and other Leyland cars in Japan and the Par East and British Leyland would give Toyota facilities in Britain.
