NDP leader raps hog plant idea EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta hog producers are threaten- ed hy Die "spectre of a corpor- ate Grant Nolley, Alber- ta Democralic Party Leader, told a news conferenco today. A proposal to establish a North American Integrated Food Processing Co. Ltd., hog- producing and packing plant near Taber in Soulheni Alberta 'is an example of corporate farming at its worst.' The plant would be capable of handling hogs a year, about 20 per cent of the total hogs produced in Alberta. They would be exporlcd (o south- east Asia. "If a business operation of tins magnitude, is permitted lo establish itself in Alberta, may as well say goodbye to tho small hog producer and turn fanning over to the corpora- lions." Mr. Notlcy said if the export Mr. Trudeau handled questions ranging from French-language television lo the monarchy. The prime minister was In Sault Sic. Marie to begin a two- day swing through Norlhern On- tario. He visils North Bay, Stur- geon Kails, Klrathcona, and Sud- bury loday before returning to Ottawa tonight. Early Thursday, the prime minister was in a relaxed mood as he told party supporters at a Liberal reception that they should not be pushed nround by critics of the governments record. He pointed with pride to envi- ronment and consumer affairs legislation and efforts to estab- lish more national parks. Mr. Trudeau received a brief at the town meeting from a women's liberation group led by Rosalie Gardezi of Sault Ste. Marie. Mrs. Gardezi later pressed the prime minister to take fur- ther action to repeal the abor- tion laws. LAWS RELAXED Mr. Trudeau replied that the government has liberalized abortion legislation by ailowring commiltees of three doctors in hospitals to rule on requcsls for abortion for hcallh reasons. "I don't know if your slogan is free abortion on demand but quite frankly it is not Mr. Trudeau said. He said that killing is some- times justified. People killed in war or in self-defence. But a man who kills in self-de- fence must justify his action be- fore Ihe courts. A woman seek- ing an abortion also should have to answer for her actions. Some women claim that they have rights over their own bod- ies. "But Ihe fetus Is not your somebody else'p he said. STATES MONARCHY VIEW On the monarchy, Mr. Tru- deau said the government will not move to abolish the institu- tion in Canada. He said another head of state would have to replace the mon- archy and there seemed to be no reason to take this step. The monarch had a symbolic appeal for many Canadians while oth- ers had no feelings about It at all. A high school student de- manded French-language televi- sion for (he city but Mr. Tru- deau said he could make no promises. A request by the city council for a deep-water port at Sault Sle. Marie was trealed sympa- Ihclically by Hie prime minis- ter. The prime minister however said (hat a request for an inter- national aij-port of Sault Sle. Marie was out of the question at the moment. It would be too expensive to build at this time.
