"Farmers are not running a national welfare he told the Nipissing Liberal Associ- ation Wednesday. "To keep them on the land, we must give them a decent profit." Last month, a day after the statistics bureau reported food price increases of 1.6 per cent between April and May, Mr. Wlielan accused consumers of being spoiled by low food costs during the last 20 years. This month, the bureau re- ported a jump of two per cent in food costs between May and June, for a 12-month increase in grocery prices of 17.7 per cent.

It is expected the bill will be voted on tonight, then go to committee for de- tailed study and possible amendment. Upset by a "waste of money that we would not tolerate 'in normal he supported the bill, saying it would remove the overriding pressure to spend that overcomes many candi- dates and parties. Over-spending usually placed candidates under obligation to people who bad money or ac- cess to money. Mr. Danson said an parties probably have wealthy mem- bers, but he did not think it was just their money that got them elected. "Nevertheless, the impression is around that it is -a position for the wealthy. This, of course, must be eliminated." He said the need to correct this impression is all the more serious when parties hope to have more women members elected. The concern over rising paign costs has been echoed by members on both sides of the House. Liberal" House Leader Allan MacEachen says the bill is the "most comprehensive attempt to control election expenses taken in Canada so far" and would result in "one of the most open and democratic elections in the world." The bill would allow candi- dates to spend for each of the first eligible voters in their ridings, 50 cents for each of the next and 25 cents for each one over It also would require public disclosure of persons contributing or more to campaign funds.
