Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wcdneidoy, Jun> 21, 197? THE U1HRRIOGE HERAID 41 Industry just full of it Farm official says more politics in agriculture than there is politics Bj JIM NEAVES EDMONTON (OP) "There's more politics in agri- culture lhan there is in poli- is just full of it." George Franklin of Winni- peg, president of the Manitoba Farm Bureau, made that comment and judging by events on the prairies during the last 18 months, he has a point. During that period both Sas- katchewan and Alherta fleeted new governments. Saskatchewan joined Mani- toba in putting the New Dem- ocratic Party in power and Albertans voted' the Progres- sive Conservatives into office, ousting the Social Credit party after a 36-year reign. Major planks in both Die Saskatchewan and A 1 b e r t a campaigns were pledges to retain the concept of the fam- ily-operated farm as statistics showed the percentage of the population engaged in farm- ing was cut by half between 1950 and 1970. There now is a political af- finity between Saskatchewan and Manitoba and although the Alberta government's phi- losophy differs, growing co- operation among the three ag- riculture departments is ap- parent, The co-operation is aimed at presenting a unified front to the federal government which, some agricultural spokesmen say, was able, to introduce agricultural policies at will before the change in government. The thrust of the combined approach is to obtain policies that will improve farmers' in- come. Sam Uskiw, Manitoba's ag- riculture minister, says the common front has been suc- cessful and will continue. "Anyone who has observed what is going on will rec- ognize that it was not until there was a change in govern- ment in all three Prairie prov- inces that we were in a posi- tion to lay down basic de- mands of the federal govern- ment and achieve a measure of success." Last year the federal gov- ernment abandoned its pro- posed plan to stabilize the in- come of grain producers fol lowing concerted opposition from the Ihree Prairie prov- inces and farm organizations. The provinces also opposed legislation designed to estab- lish national marketing agen- cies for agricultural products resulted in changes to the original bill. Mr. IJskiw said that initially Manitoba fought the market- ing legislation alone, stalling ils passage until the change of governments occurred in ils two sister provinces. "Tlu's change in govern- ments was followed by a com- plete change of attitude on Ihe part of Ottawa to the Prairie he said. The provinces can play only a persuasive role in the fed- eral field and they now are trying to get the federal gov- ernment to inject more money into agriculture to ensure Ihe industry's profitability. One of the joint recommen- dations was a two-price sys- tem for higher price for domestically-sold wheat than that sold on the interna- tional market. The measure was intro- duced by Ottawa early this year following the efforts of Ihe Prairie governments. The plan has injected about million into the prairie econ- omy. Hugh Homer, Alberta agri- culture minister, says co-oper- ation among the three prov- inces should "strengthen and improve, always having the reservation of reaching our objectives in different ways." The events of the last year "showed we could get to- gether uilh some he said. Senior officials of the three agriculture departments have discussed many areas of co- operation ranging from ma- chinery testing lo combined marketing efforts. iS I'KIOHITY AREA Marketing is one of Ihe priority areas in which the three provinces have become involved in co-operation. How- ever, with growing sales of grains and livestock to Pacific Rim countries, each province is establishing its own mar- keting branch in agriculture. There is concern this frag- mentation will be detrimental because of the buyers playing off one province against the other to get a better deal. Jack Messer, Saskatchewan agriculture minister, said the Ihree provinces "can't never expect lo work In total har- mony toward establishing new markets." Mr. Franklin is not oplimis- lic about the political influ- ence that can be exerted by the Prairies in combined ef- forts. "I get awfully afraid that in agriculture in Canada if any- thing is done for Ihe West it will be done to slop us from interfering with the Eastern farmers, that's politics." Mr. Kranklin, noting On- tario and Quebec send 162 MPs to Parliament compared with 5 from the Prairie prov- inces, says if the federal gov- ernment h e it c v e s Western farmers are going to "bother Eastern Canada, they'll cither put up regulations or give us a bit more money lo live on." "That's cruel, but f can'k see it any other way. Politics is pretty rough."
