Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 7, 1975 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 23 Agriculture need for clear farm policy stressed KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) Lack of a clear and consistent farm policy has resulted in lost, opportunities for Canada's agriculture in- dustry, the president of the Agriculture Institute of Canada said Thursday. Don Baron, speaking to the annual Conference here, said that the country's agriculture industry has been- obsessed with politics and particularly with marketing policy. He said the big decisions being made are political ones rather than technical ones. "We have failed to create an environment in Canada whereby rural depopulation Economic woes to be aired GENEVA (Renter) Rich and poor countries begin long- delayed trade negotiations here next week with earlier aims of expanding global com- merce diminished by the world's current economic; woes. The talks, opening on Tues- day, were conceived nearly three years ago within the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade an 83- country body based in Geneva, as the most am- bitious attempt ever made to break down barriers to inter- national exchange of indus- trial and farm products. But now they seem.more likely to concentrate, at least in the short term, on bolster- ing defences against dangers of the world sliding back into protectionist restrictions that might result in a general trade war. Thoughts of governments have turned rather to self-de- fence than to opening their doors wider to foreign goods. The mainly procedural meeting, expected to last three to four days, will open next week with countries stating their initial negotiating positions. It will also discuss a time- table for the bargaining, and seek to draw up lists of issues to be tackled and procedures for dealing with them. Iran cancels wheat order WASHINGTON (AP) Iran has followed a number of other countries in cancell- ing United States wheat orders for the current crop year, the U.S. agriculture department says. A weekly listing of export commitments issued Thurs- day showed Iran has cancelled orders for metric tons of wheat scheduled for delivery by June 30, the end of the 1974 crop year. HD4ON MAC D. CAMPBELL Jack W. Pools, president of Daon Development Corpora- tion, announces the appoint- ment of Mac D. Campbell as Treasurer of the company. Mr. Campbell brings to Daon broad experience in the real estate development and investment field across Canada. Most re- cently, he was a Director and Senior Real Estate Investment Analyst with Canavest House Ltd., Toronto; prior to that, he was Real Estate Analyst with Greenshields Mr. Campbell holds a BA in Eco- nomics from the University of Alberta and an MBA from'the University of Western Ontario. can be stopped and We don't know how to recon" cile the Ontario farmers' needs for protectionism and western Canada's need to ex- port food. The chicken and egg war has led the way to the balkanization of Canada, the great move towards regionalism and provin- said Mr. Baron. He noted that the United States government has recent- ly turned its attention to the American farmer and said U.S. exports of farm com- modities in 1973 were 88 per cent higher than those of the previous year. The food ex- ports erased a deficit of billion in non agricultural trade, giving the U.S. an agriculture trade surplus of billion-. Mr. Baron said the U.S., in effect, has recognized the potential of agriculture. Mr. Baron said that by com- parison Canada, which is one of the few countries able to produce food beyond its own needs, is relying more and more on food imports. He said according to the Agriculture Economics Research Council of Canada, farm production in eastern Canada hasn't increased in the past'six years and declined in both the Maritimes and in Quebec. Egg quotas to be cut by 10% MONCTON, N.B. (CP) The Canadian Egg Marketing Board agreed Thursday to reduce egg quotas by 10 per cent for egg producers in seven of the 10 provinces. The reductions were agreed upon at a three-day meeting of CEMA which ended here Thursday. CEMA chairman Philip El- dridge of Calgary said follow- ing the meeting that the total production of registered producers in Canada would be cut by 10 per cent from the current 475 million dozen. The reductions will affect all provinces except New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, which will be permitted to maintain their existing quotas of 1.828 per cent, 0.637 per cent and 1.785 per cent respec- tively. They are the only provinces whose quotas are less than two per cent of the national total. Mr. Eldridge said the mem- bers of CEMA agreed com- pletely with the reduction and realized "they can't afford overproduction." Mr. Eldridge said farmers were not gouging the con- sumers. He said labor unions and professional organizations are accepted but "Canadians seem to think farmers can not organize to protect their economic interests. They seem to feel farmers should lose or make only minimal returns." An advertising campaign which had been planned to stimulate egg consumption during the first three months of this year has been post- poned. There was also a .word of comfort for the housewife. He said some provinces foresee a temporary lowering of retail egg prices, mainly due to im- ports of surpluses from the United States. Brewery reopened PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) Uncle Ben's Ltd. reopened its Prince George brewery Thursday and ex- pects all 25 employees to be back to work by Monday. A brewer and two other men went to work Thursday, and the bottling shop will go into operation Monday; said Jim Hubbard, bottling superintendent. In January, Ben Ginter threatened to close the brewery for good unless he could get provincial approval for a quota system that would force the province's beer parlors to buy at least 10 per cent of their beer from his brewery.
