Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wednesday, January 20, 1971 -- Esso dealers pressured to sign up for deal TORONTO (CP) - The Ontario committee on franchises began public hearings here with questions to oil company representatives about leases and sales arrangements with gasolino and service station operators. The committee holding the three-day hearings was appointed last year by A. B. R. Lawrence, minister of financial and commercial affairs. K. W. Langdon, executive secretary of the Ontario Retail Gasoline and Automotive Service Association, told the committee about 100 Esso dealers were locked in a room before being asked to sign up for a give-away promotion for Esso hockey broadcasts. They were to contribute to the scheme according to their gal-lonage, payments ranging to $2,000. FOUND DOORS LOCKED He said that when the dealers attempted to leave the room they found the doors guarded by Imperial Oil Ltd., employees. "There were implied threats for those who didn't sign," Mr. Langdon said. He told the committee he received the information from one dealer and later confirmed it with others. A Shell Canada Ltd. official told the committee his company does not establish and protect a trading area for any of its lease-operated stations, The number of stations' in an area is left to "competitive forces," and no protection is provided for the lease-holder, C. G. Kap-pler said. However, his company would not open a second station in an area adequately served. Franchising is a system in which one person or company authorizes another to distribute goods or services under a marketing plan devised for him. Ottawa plans to spend more on pollution OTTAWA (CP) - The federal government will double the amount it is spending on pollution research in the pulp and paper industry, a spokesman for Fisheries' Minister Jack Davis said today. The government, in conjunction with industry, has already let nine contracts into pollution research, the spokesman said. Each contributed about $500,000 into research programs last year. "We are prepared to double that amount in order to put a broader more concentrated effort into this' area." Much of the q u e s t i o n i n g centred on complaints from service station operators about treatment by oil companies whose products they sell. In a majority of cases, service stations are owned by oil comparies and operated by lease-holders. Mr. Kappler said his company would object to any attempt to mix trading areas for service stations, and would resist any attempt to permit lease-holders to bargain collectively on such things as rents. Prof. W. A. W. Neilson, committee counsel, said service station operators complain that while their leases bind them to sell only one company's gasoline and oil products, the com-panies are not exclusively bound to sell only to their own operators or to protect the lease-holder. Mr. Kappler said it is unfair to apply the name "gimmick promotions" to some oil company advertising programs, as several members of the committee did. The programs, usually involving a give-away of some kind, are not compulsory for company lease-holders, and with most of them participating dealers make more money as a result, he said. Prof. Neilson said some operators cc-iplain they do not want the sales promotions and do not always make money on them. Assorted styles and colors. Incomplete sizo range. Reg.
