Student fined in fraud case WINNIPEG (CP) United Grain Gravers 1-as expressed concern that the sale oi Fed- eral Grain Ltd. grain opera- tions to the three prairie wheat pools rail enable the pools to put a "big squeeze" on compe- titors. This could come about, says UGG president A. M. Runci- man, under the existing Brack- en formula for allocating box- cars to the various elevator companies. Mr. Runciman voiced con- cern in a letter to all local board directors of the prairie- wide farmer owned elevator co-operative. He added that UGG has been in touch with the federal government about it. Sals of Federal's grain assets to the Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta Wheat Pools was announced last week, subject to shareholder approval at a meeting March The deal will put aboul 34 per cent of prairie elevators under Ihe pools' ownership and Mr. Runciman said more half the wesUm delivery' points will be left with only oue elevator company, NOT GOOD 'This in itself is not a good thing for farm people, regard- less if they haul to your com- pany or any oilier. But our main concejTi is the big squeeze that could be put on United Grain Growers and oth- er competitors of the pools" through the Bracken formula The formula was devised by a royal commission under the lale John Bracken in 1953, at a time farmers were complain- ing about elevator congestion and being unable to deliver to the elevator of their choice. Under the formula, put into effect by the Canadian Wheat Board, elevator companies ore allotted boxcars -within each of the 43 prairie shipping blocks on the basis of their average percentage of total grain han- dlings within the block In the last ]2 months. A grain farmer Is limited to a choice of two delivery points, of which there are about 40 to a block, and these points must permit crop be designated in his book al (lie. start of year.. With the Pools acquiring Federal Grain's share of box- cars, Mr. Runciman said: "The pools could effectively starve single points for boxcars (farmers there have no alter- native and feed boxcars Into competitive points. Not only would your company find it dif- ficult to retain some customers during periods of congestion, but it would be difficult indeed lo attract former Federal Grain customers. "You can imagine how hard it is to improve your share ol handling, and the eventual long-term results If boxcar flooding al competitive points is practised." Mr. RvmcimBn sa: UGG has told the federal govemmenl the formula is restricting com- petition ueedec'. and a change Govt. plans grain, freight adjustments OTTAWA (CP) The govern' ment will make some adjust- ments in the amount of freiph1 subsidies granted for shipping Prairie feed grain to other parts of Canada, Agriculiure Minister H. A. Olson said today. The subsidies, announced every year on April 1, will re- flect increased costs of IranS' portation during the last year, he said in a Commons reply to Leonei Beaudoin The subsidies are paid under the federal feed-freight assisl- t the expense of employment, >ut on different terms. Mr. Broaclbcnl said a little In- lation is not necessarily a bad thing. Pensioners could be protected Tom it through cost-of-living es- calator clauses in all pension plans, And unorganized workers could get organized. The people the government was really trying lo protect 'rom inflation, he said, are investors "who want to be able to clip their coupons at the same dollar value at which they invested." He called on the gov- ernment to drop its attack on inflation and push for a full-ein- fjloyment economy. Mr. Hellyer said both low In- flation and low unemplbymenl rates are important, and couk be achieved if Ihe government would limit wage increases for big unions and price increases for big business to the aimua! increase in the cost of living. But the absolute unemploy- ment rate was at 7.7 per cent in January and the annual inflar tibn rate was back to 4.9 per cent. LEVEL HIGHER "Jn other words the inflation level Is now higher than when this whole inhumane exercise was begun in 1969." Mr. Hellyer, former transport minister, now sits as an Inde pendent Liberal. Mr. Broadbent accused Mr Trudeau of a "playful and mis leading use of statistics." Tlie prime minister had salt that the number of new jobs created In Canada in Ihe fina quarter of 1971 had exceeded (hose created in Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, France and Italy. But he had failed to note the low unemployment rates in those cour.lries. and tile fact that there are 1.3 unemployed persons for every one job avail- able in Ihcm, compared wilh 11 unemp'.cycd persons for every available job in Canada, ON ntll.K? Social Credit Leader Real Cao'ii'llr defended Premier A. C. Bennett of British Colum- bia, accused by Mr. Trudeau ol being a bigot. Mr. C'aouelle called Mr. Tru- deau's remark oulrageons. SAYS BENNETT RIGHT In fact, he said, the B.C. So- cial Credit leader is not a bigot. He had just correctly identified Canadian problems as economic rather than linguistic. Northern Development Minis- ter Jean Chrclien announced the sites for three new national Government news agency requested QUEBEC (CP) Proposals [or u provincial government news agency and for a broad- casting system run by the prov- ince lo strengthen information links between Quebocers were heard by the Quebec national ascmbly's communications committee Tuesday. Marcel Leger, I'arli Qucbc- cois member for Montreal La- fontaine, said in a written brief that coverage of Quebec re- gional news is "fragmented." A provincial broadcasting system was needed partly because of Canadians to own oil, gas lines OTTAWA (CP) Oil and gas pipelines along the Mackenzie Valley are a certainly. Energy Minister Donald S. JIacdonald says. fie added that Canadians will be majority owners of Hie lines. In his first official comment on the proposed pipelines since he assumed the portfolio last month, Mr. Macdonald told re- porters that "you have to take a Mackenzie Valley pipeline as a given element of. energy pol- icy." CuiTent studies on the pipe- lines, to be completed before the end of this year, involved questions of how they should be whether they should be built. Mr. Macdonald also predicted tnal lira trans-Alaska pipeline system, opposed by environ- mentalists, eventually will be constructed. 'federal censorship' o f the CBCs French network. Increased citizen participa- tion, along with improved local vs services centred on Quebec affairs, would strengthen tlie bonds between Quebecers, he said. The communications comnvil- lee is hearing briefs on three bills which would, among olhcr provisions, give Ihe province tho right lo license all radio and television stations in Quebec. Mr. Leger also proposed mak- ing Bell Canada a provincially chartered company and nation- alizing part of its equipment, including computers. DISAPPOINTS MINISTER Communications M 1 n I s t e f ,1 e a n -P a u 1 L'Allier said ha "could not hide a certain disap- pointment that the brief con- tained many generalities." Mr. Leger said Quebec pro- vincial news Is covered by daily newspapers confined mainly to the Quebec City and Montreal regions, although Quebec Le So- leil "covers an appreciable part" of the province outside Quebec City. It said Ihe only systematic link bcfwceu the media is achieved by The Canadian Press, "which almost does not serve regional activity in Quebec and leaves complete areas in the shadows. "On the international side, It is common to note that numer- ous events Lalung place over- seas and having a particular significance for Quebec are not given attention by CP due to a lack of correspondents. He said in aa interview after the hearings lliat his briel sought only to outline the prob- lems of regional news In Quebec.
