Such a move would stop dis- crimination against Western Canada through freight rates, said members. They were attending the party's weekend conference on western development. Bill Tuomi, leader of the Al- berta Communist Party, said the proposal will be submitted to the western economic op- portunities conference to be held between the federal gov- ernment and the western provinces in July. The proposed board would not be like the present Can- adian transport commission, Mr. Tuomi said. Members would include people from the farm organizations, trade un- ion movements and members of the provincial govern- ments.

Other proposals approved by the 61 delegates at the conference were: Th-j development of en- ergy and natural resources under public ownership.

Canada and a higher price for gas exported put of the country. The provincial gov- ernment has proposed a sys- tem where Albertans will re- ceive a rebate on natural gas they purchase. The party leader said the temporary controls on export of gasoline and home heat- ing oil are a good beginning, but a national energy policy is needed where surplus energy would be sold only when it is definitely available. The party favors a natural gas pipeline from the Mac- kenzie Valley "as long as there are safeguards to the native people and the ecol- ogy." Financing should be through loans, not outside ownership. Mr. Kashtan said the fed- eral government is not doing enough to fight inflation be- cause it is supported by mon- opolies. "To tackle high prices you have to go to the source of the problem and the source is the monopolies. They have to be controlled and their cal- lous attitude towards the needs of the people stopped."

I have no plans, but things in farming are just too hard right now." He has farmed for 19 of his 39 years and acquired his current property in with the help of a mort- gage from North West Trust Co. Mr. Rombs said that when he took over the farm, in the Peace River district 250 miles northwest of Edmonton, bar- ley sold at a bushel. The price now is around 60 cents a bushel and most of his income came last year from part of his rapeseed crop which he sold for Another 160 acres of rape- seed is still in the field, un- harvested from last year. Sales from his 64-head cat- tle herd and a hog operation were all that kept food on the table for his wife and one child, he said. "Even with just the mort- gage payment, we'd still have to scratch." North West Trust filed claim on the farm Friday, he said, and plans to acquire possession of the 17-year-old, two-bedroom house July 31, the day scheduled for eviction, The company said Mr. Rombs has paid a total of on the loan but be- cause of interest at 8.75 per cent annually and legal charges the outstanding amount now is Re- payment was to require 15 annual installments of 822.20.

Mr. Finnerty indicated the trust company might not get for the property if they sold it at a judicial sale but Mr. Miles said the com- pany has considered "all as- pects of the case." Len Butler, Peace River co-ordinator of the National Farmers' Union, said Mr. Rombs' neighbors and mer- chants in Fairview are pre- pared to picket the property to prevent the eviction. Foreclosure proceedi n g s were once started in 1968 but abandoned when a payment of was made. The pro- ceedings which led to the cur- rent situation began in 1970. Mr. Miles said it -would have been better to continue in 1968 because the amount of money outstanding would have been less.
