POPULATION CLOCK WATCHERS SLIP UP OTTAWA (CP) ~ Canada's population sneaked past the 22-million mark sometime early Thursday, but population clock-watchers at Information Canada missed the moment. By noon, the clock in the Information Canada bookstore was several thousand past 22 million. "We don't know what time it reached 22 million," an official said. "We've been waiting for that for weeks, but when it happened we were so busy we missed it." Population experts at Statistics Canada were all out to lunch when it was discovered that the clock had passed 22 million. The clock is a computer that estimates population minute by minute by a formula based on known trends in births, deaths and migration. The official census in June 1, 1971, showed population as 21,508,315, up from 18,238,247 in 1961. The population hit 20 million in 1966 and was 20,-014,880 June 1 that year. Food packaging practice checked OTTAWA (CP) - The soup envelope, milk carton and the garbage pail came in for close attention Thursday as the Packaging Association of Canada argued before the Commons special food price committee that packaging really makes foodstuffs cheaper. But A. Ray Chadsey, association president, admitted he would be "less than honest" if ha tried to deny that the industry in the past had proliferated package sizes with the intention of confusing the consumer and making price comparisons difficult.- The association is in favor of government proposals to bring nvore standard package sizes in through legislation, Mr. Chadsey said. The industry had been working with federal experts to determine the kind of regulations that could be applied. The association brief argued that most high packaging costs arise with "convenience foods," such as those wrapped so that they can simply be heated and served. Higher prices for such foods help hold down the price of staple items, Mr. Chadsey said. While association spokesmen maintained that the consumer, through choice exercised in the marketplace, plays a big role in determining such packaging it rapidly became apparent that some other big factors go into the decision. Why is Lipton soup on an envelope inside a box, Max. Salts-man (NDP-Waterloo) asked. Snowmobile insurance fee $30 EDMONTON (CP) - The maxinr'm fee for compulsory pubi'- -bility snowmobile in-su- '.rill be $30, attorney-ge Merv Leitch said yes-terc.;.. The fee, he said, covers the $25,000 public liability coverage which snowmobile users must carry under new provincial laws. The $30 would include passenger hazard coverage. The liability insurance rate had been reviewed and approved by the provincial insurance board. Wasn't this pure over packaging? . L. G. Jamison, association vice-president, said there were complaints by retailers about shoplifting because the package was easy to hide and difficult to put prices on. The decision was made to enclose the envelope in a box. Mr. Saltsman said the decision here was not for the .convenience of the consumer but for the convenience of the retailer. James A. McGrath (PC-St. John's East) suggested packaging is really for the convenience of the retailer, as demonstrated by the fact that probably the cheapest way to buy milk is in returnable bottles but these are fast disappearing. Grace Hutchings, association national director, said milk is sold in these various ways because coumers want them. A company that did not provide this packaging variety would lose business. Mr. Saltsman and Alf Gleaver (NDP-Saskatoon-Biggar) wondered how much consideration is given in the packaging industry to the country's mount-ing total of garbage and the problems of disposal it raises. Packaging is part of the cost awl the consumer pays for it, Mr. Jamison said. In some instances, packaging was dictated by health protection requirements. Soup was put in cans because it then could be given a final heat treatment to kill bacteria that could cause botulism and salmonella. Consumers still had choice. If they objected to soup in cans it also was available in packets. PUBLIC PAYS TOO MUCH Somebody has to pay for it, Mr. Saitsmian added, and suggested the public is bearing too much of the burden because packaging is largely deductible for corporate tax purposes. Mr. Chadsey said packaging is part of the cost of goods and gets the same tax treatment as the finished product. Mr. Gleave said bread in France is sold unwrapped and is "a lot more tasty" than wrapped Canadian supermarket bread. Mr. Jamison said the distribution system is totally different in Canada and bread here has to have a "shelf life" of some days. In France, most people shopped daily for bread and meat. Canadians did it once a week or twice a month.
