Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 12, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdntidiy, February 12, 1875 Rustling high on agenda of big farm convention By KEN POLE OTTAWA (CP) A welter of resolutions covering everything from cattle rustl- ing to trespassing is the meat of the 39th annual meeting of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture here this week. By-Thursday, last day of the four-day conference, delegates from all provinces are expected to trim the list to a select number of proposals for further consideration by government or by the federation, largest farm pressure group in the country. It represents 90 to 95 per cent of Canada's more than farmers. The rustling resolution is prompted by what CFA spokesmen say is a rising in- cidence of one of the favorite crimes of the Old West. The CFA says fines for rustling aren't stiff enough and they want Justice Minister Otto Lang to have them increased. Rustling isn't just a fixture of the new West, either. Quebec Provincial Police last fall reported 200 head of cattle stolen in three months, evidently ,a reaction to beef prices that were rising sharp- ly at the time. Liberal MP Len Marcliand (Kamloops-Cariboo) tried in 1973 to have Parliament toughen the laws against rustling, but his private member's bill died on the order paper without coming to a vote.

In handing down its ruling, the high court said land-' owners who know snow- mobilers are trespassing on their property have a duty to prevent any situation that may injure the trespassers. Peter Veinot of Larder Lake, Ont. was awarded 537 damages against Kerr- Addison Mines Ltd. because he struck his head on a steel pipe placed across a road own- ed and maintained by the min- ing company on its own property. The resolution now before the CFA says federal and provincial governments should pass laws preventing trespassers from suing land- owners for damages in- curred while trespassing. Another resolution would have the. nightly national television news moved to' 10 p.m. from 11 p.m. to save energy by having people go to bed earlier. Yet another complains about what it says is the CBC's "diminishing and downgrading" radio programs aimed at farmers and asks the Crown corpo- ration to set up national and regional advisory groups to advise it on what farm pro- gramming is needed. Other resolutions up for dis- cussion would: .old age pensions payable at age 60 instead of' 65. any St. Lawrence seaway toll increases despite the fact Ottawa still is consid- ering a 1971 proposal that they be increased by 27.5 per cent over five years. Ottawa allow pen-, sioners or welfare recipients to earn a year extra without affecting their pen- sions or payments; In hospital Social Credit Leader Real Caouette, a diabetic, has entered hospital and probably will not testify before a Commons com- mittee investigating al- legations that MPs bribe reporters. The bribery allegations were made by the Social Credit leader in December. Performers' tax system may be eased OTTAWA (CP) A new system to collect tax from foreign performers on their Canadian income will not app- ly to performances booked by Feb. 1, revenue Minister Ron Basford says. He said in an interview he gave that assurance to a group of threatre managers and booking agents, mainly from Toronto and New York, at a private meeting Tuesday mor- ning. A possible compromise on how the 15 per cent withholding tax should be collected also was discussed. It was possible a modifica- tion would be made to new rules which require that the withholding tax on gross in- come be paid before the per- former leaves Canada. Theatre owners and booking agents said some performers and theatres would be hurt badly by this procedure. Applying the 15 per cent tax immediately would deprive some performers of ready cash they need to make their they argued.
