Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, January 10, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 r 7- A V .A--A' f" 's Brief urges home-owned farm land BROOKS (Special) The Kastern Irrigation District brief on land use says that in order to control the use of agricultural land in Alberta it will be necessary to limit the ownership of land to citizens of Alberta. Presented to the Alberta Land Use Forum here, the KID board's brief said that restrictions on land should be limited to what are necessary lo keep enough agricultural land in agricultural produc- tion lo supply our future needs. 'We 'would place this responsibility for the control of use and disposition of agricultural land on government. "We do suggest, however, that as the need for agricultural products increase, the productive value of agricultural land will also increase, which will in some measure reduce the demand lor agricultural land for other uses. "Government could make non-agricultural Crown land available for some of these other uses." the brief says. The EID board says it is concerned, and based its briel. on "the extent, if any. to which the historical right of a landowner to determine the use and disposition of agricultural property ought to he restricted." The KID brief says it is concerned "because of the disappearance of agricultural land and the erosion of the rights of ownership." The E1D would like to see "stability of the base from which agriculture operates, namely, the land." This would ensure "adequate food production for the increasing population." The most suitable solution, says the EID. would be "pari- ty of price for agricultural products with all other products."

Onl. saies by legislation; sales by government of non- agricultural Crown land for non-agricultural purposes; prices for agricultural products which will enable those in agriculture to meet the compotiton in the market lor agricultural land when it is sold: and additional protec- tion of the landowner from annexation, expropriation and confiscation of his land through lack of proper long- range planning." The brief says food is "not produced on pavements, boulevards, housing developments, .airports, wastelands or many other places but an developed agricultural land." The EID board asks if Alberta's responsibility for agricultural production is on a provincial level, national level, or is it worldwide? "Before we proceed with further restrictions of the rights of the landowner in land that he has bought in good faith in order to earn a livelihood, that we recom- mend a study by qualified per- sons he undertaken. This would be to determine our need and our responsibility for agricultural production. "Along with our ability to produce these needs, we must ensure that, depending on our responsibilities in food production, those for whom we are responsible must be assured of adequate food supplies." Classes drew HIGH RIVER (Special) The Foothills Department of Continuing Education says about 1.000 people took part in 70 courses it offered in the fall session.

South In short Graveyards may be improved FOREMOST (Special) There are between 25 and 30 inac- tive or semi active graveyards located within the boundaries of the County of Forty Mile, and many of them may soon take on a new look if funds are approved. The cemetery Restoration and Survey Program ad- ministered by the Alberta department of culture, youth and recreation may be a fund source. A letter has been sent to Culture and Youth Minister Horst Schrnid by county administrator Roy R. Wallman requesting an extension of time for applications. No reply has yet been received.
