Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, 11, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Canada faces crisis No farmland in 40 years TORONTO (CP) Peter Hannam, chairman of the re- source development committee of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, said Monday that every hour, 26 acres of prime farmland in Canada go to other uses and if this trend continues there will be no farmland in good growing climates in Canada in 40 years. Mr. Hannam was speaking in favor of increasing food costs to preserve more agricultural land, in a debate at a confer- ence of the Community Planning Association of Canada. Murray Gaunt, Liberal member of the Ontario legislature foi Huron-Bruce, opposed the idea. He said that higher food srices to preserve more agricultural land would be "totally unacceptable" and the way to preserve land is through land- use planning controls. Mr Hannam said an increase in food costs at the consumer level would provide larger incomes to farmers in Canada and create the incentive for farmers to stay on the land. He said that because of the low income farmers receive, they are unable to hire "good labor." Mr. Gaunt said that the absence of land-use planning would mean more farmers leaving the land and that within 50 years. Canada might become dependent on other countries for food. Better to sell Mr Gaunt said that if the farmer can sell his land for 000 an acre, it is more profitable for him to sell than to farm He said that a consumer in the bracket spends 13 per cent of his wages on food while a person in the 000-a-year bracket spends 28 per cent on food. With an in- crease in the cost of food, he said, "there will be food for the rich and crumbs for the poor." Mr Gaunt said that through land-use planning, prime land could be preserved for farming instead of being sold to speculators for other uses. He said 2000 families leave the farm each year in Ontario- in some cases because it is more profitable to sell. Disaster areas declared Parts of Oklahoma and Kan- sas were declared federal dis- aster areas Monday as government officials and storm victims surveyed the ruins left by weekend tornadoes and flooding in four states. Twenty-three persons died in the storms and damage estimates topped million. President Nixon issued the disaster proclamations before he left for a tour of the Middle East. Hardest-hit areas now are eligible for federal relief funds, emergency housing and other assistance.

Dr. Peter Banks said in a statement "The problem has been blown out of all proportion to reality." "Hundreds of people have needlessly visited or telephoned their physicians. thrown out their kettles or stopped using them. It is a classical example of poor communications between health authorities and the media and in turn the general public." Electric kettles are suspected by medical authorities of being associated with high blood lead levels in two young children. The lead was traced to lead solder used in some kettles. Dr. Banks said "Lead poisoning due to this cause is restricted almost exclusively to young children and even then is very rare." Most of the kettles sold in Canada boil water with lead levels of less than 0.05 parts per million the maximum level considered safe tor human consumption, he said. Tell of experiences The Earl and Countess of Donouqhmere talk about their experience shortly after their release by IRA kidnappers in Dublin's Phoenix Park.
