Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday. February LETHBRIOQE HERALD -3 Prices sky high in north areas YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T.. (CP) A local consumers association says the federal food prices review board did not include the Northwest Territories in its 'national survey, despite what it calls alarmingly high prices in the territories. The Yellowknife consumers association, after more than a year of research, has released a 43-page report that shows local supermarket prices are almost 32 per cent higher than those in Toronto and 25 per cent higher than those in the average southern city. But Yellowknife's prices are comparatively low when placed alongside those of Spence Bay, 750 miles northeast of here. The North Territories Public Service Alliance has reported the cost of shopping in Spence Bay is New weapons BROOKS The British Army training unit at the Suf- field military base has receiv- ed 13 new tanks and 17 new self-propelled artillery pieces. A similar number of weapons were sent back to England for overhaul. The British Army training unit operates at the Suffield defence research establish- ment under a 10-year agree- ment ratified between the Canadian and British governments in 1971. 140 per cent higher than in Yellowknife. Despite these figures, the consumers association notes that when the food prices review board conducted its survey, the Northwest Territories was not included and the only Northern area considered was the Yukon. "We submit that our prices are equal to if not higher than food prices in the the association says in its report. "The hardship which this incurs deserves more than passing notice by the food prices review board and the government of Canada." The association's figures come from a cross-Canada survey that was co-ordinated during the second week of October, 1973. The centres involved were Moncton, N.B, Halifax, Montreal; Toronto, Victoria, Yellowknife, Inuvik, N.W.T., Coppermine, N.W.T., and Whitehorse, Y.T. The. survey was also con- ducted in London, Ont, and Maple Creek, Sask., at various times throughout last year. Of these centres, Coppermine, about 625 miles north of Yellowknife, reported the highest prices. A 16-item shopping list cost there, compared with at Inuvik, at Whitehorse, 512T65 at Yellowknife and at Toronto. It was when Yellowknife's prices were compared every two months with those of Lon- don and Maple Creek that the city's consumers association became concerned.

Red threat seen major election issue Appointed John (Jack) Lyndon of Toronto has been ap- pointed deputy minister of the Alberta consumer affairs department. Social Credit campaign launched OTTAWA (CP) The federal Social Credit Party hopes to collect more than one million signatures on a petition urging use of the Bank of Canada to finance public projects. The party expects that the campaign to collect all the signatures will be complete in May, Martin Hattersley of Ed- monton, party president, told a news conference today. The petition is aimed at hav- ing the House of Commons ap- prove a private member's bill introduced last year by Social Credit Leader Real Caouette. The bill would enable the bank to help finance public projects by loaning money to govern- ments at low interest rates and for periods of up to 60 years. Troops move OTTAWA (CP) Canadian troops in the Middle East will pack their tents and move from- their Cairo race track home to a new site at the battered city of Ismailia on the Suez canal. By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) For the first time since the "Red Let- ter" scare of 1924, Communist influence in Britain is likely to become a major issue in a na- tional election campaign which is shaping up as one of the bitterest in memory. As the country swings into the election campaign against the grim background of a coal strike and continued railway disruptions, Prime Minister Heath has opened his attack against industrial militants who "want to change our. whole democratic way of life." Two leading newspapers, The Times and the Daily Telegraph, claimed in editorials Friday that Communists and other militant leftists in the min- eworkers union are politically motivated and have set out to smash the Tory government as well'as its anti-inflation policy. In his first electioneering pitch after calling the Feb. 28 poll, Heath suggested in a television interview that a vote for the opposition Labor party would be, a vote for Communists and their friends. He claimed union militants woufd use a leftwing government for their own e Labor leader Harold Wilson and five of his 16-strong "shadow cabinet" along with more than 100 Labor MPs ear- lier strongly repudiated a fiery speech, by Mick McGahey, Communist vice- 6resident of the National nion of Mineworkers but Heath in his TV interview questioned why more Labor MPs had failed to sign their leader's statement. McGahey, the lean, bespec- tacled leader of the Scottish miners, has already become the Tories' chief bogeyman. In his notorious Jan. 27 speech, McGahey declared that if troops penetrated miners' picket lines, he .would appeal to them for assistance as "sonsof the workingcl i This was widely interpreted as incitement to law- though McGahey later claimed he was quoted out 'of and Labor leaders and even McGahey's own president, Joe Gormley, rushed to dissociate themselves from the militant unionist. The speech put the spark to tinder which had been liuilding for some time. Last the Similar Telegraph warned nl a plot industrial trouble this winter, hatched at a meeting of the Communist- controlled Liaison Committee for the Defence of Trade Unions.
