Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Salurlay, July 10, 1971 Supply creates cracks in egg prices program OTTAWA (CP) A continu- ing heavy supply is creating cracks in the federal purchase program to stabilize egg prices across the country. The agricultural products board is expected to assess the program next week to deter- mine whether it should be con tinned. When the scheme was an- nounced .June 8, Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson said con- tinuance of the program beyond six to eight weeks "depends on the industry and the provinces moving to bring production bet- ter in line with available mar- Prices have improved since the board began buying eggs to relieve market pressure, but egg production is continuing at a brisk pace. Under the program, the board buys eggs by weekly tender.

Assurances have already been 'given that current mili- tary decorations may continue to be worn. The special committee com- prised members of the Privy Council office, defence and state secretary departments and the Governor-General's secretariat. State Secretary Gerard Pel- letier says the committee re- port is unlikely to be made public. eggs are processed into such products as melange and powder to be used as part of Canada's contribution to the world food program. While egg prices have im- proved under the program, agri- culture officials say there have not been the same dramatic re- sults as shown by a similar pro- gram four years ago. "We're hitting a crucial said one spokesman. "We've got to see that money spent is producing something positive because subsidies don't solve problems." PROBLEMS ABOUND The industry's dilemma stems from a tangled web of problems egg supplies, dis- rupted markets, a decrease in the mortality rates among growing pullets and laying hens, and depressed prices. The pinch is felt most in Man- itoba and Ontario, two prov- inces which have no boards to regulate egg marketing. The so-called chicken-and-egg war also has aggravated the problems. Surplus eggs from Ontario, Manitoba and Nova Scotia previously were mar- keted in Quebec. H o w e v e r, access to the Quebec market has been re- stricted by Fedco, Quebec's egg marketing body established a year ago. The battle over the in- terprovincial poultry products trade spread quickly when other provinces passed their own leg- islation restricting the sale of Canada has spent mil- lion since 1964 to maintain Ca- nadian troops in the United Nations force on Cyprus. Only million has been re- covered from the UN. The re- mainder comes out of Can- ada's pocket. Is the government about to get into another flag issue?

But the passengers gel in- stant mashed, made in New Brunswick. The reason, says Mr. Du- quet in a Commons return for Angus MacLean is limited storage space. Instant mashed take less room.

The Supreme Court of Canada ruled June 28 that proposed Manitoba legislation to restrict or control the import of eggs 1 from outside the province was i unconstitutional. Manitoba pu i the question before the court in a thinly-disguised attack on Fedco. Justice Minister John Turner now is studying the Supreme Court judgment to decide wha Ottawa should do about provin cial legislation restricting tradi among provinces in agricultura products. OUTLET CUT OFF The United States, whic! provided Canadian eggs an ac ditional outlet last year, also i suffering from a large surplu and that market now also is al most non-existent. Normally, egg production ta pers off at this time of year bu this has not been the case ir 1971. About six weeks ago, cases of dozen to th marketed throug registered federal grading sta tions.
