Dr. Hugh Horner, Alber- ta deputy premier and agricul- ture minister, said at a press conference Thursday that his department will be providing incentives to producers. The in- centives help producers to grow grain corn for the new Inter- national Distillers Canada Lim- ited plant and for the rest of Ihe eight to 10 million bushel market in Alberta and British Columbia. Dr. Horner will receive a re- port from a special meeting of d i s t i 11 ing industry, officials, grain handling companies, Al bcrta Corn Committee and sev- eral farmers which will help him decide to what extent the Alberta government must go in providing incentives to the pro- ducers. The incentives will be pro- vided as part of the agree- ment between the government and International Distillers to co-operate to develop the. com industry in southern Alberta. "They (International Dis- tillers) asked for nothing from the Alberta government except for co Deration in encourag- ing the grain corn industry i n I the said Dr. Horner. In other areas, Dr. Horner said the new legislation allow- ing butter-colored margarine for sale in the province would not affect the dairy industry. He said the legislation will I help employment, improve the i rapeseed industry and improve j secondary industry in the prov- t- ince. and "There are not enough dairy cows in the province now, so the industry is already in an import he said. "Therefore the production of butter-colored margarine won't hurt the industry." He suggested that "now t li e Purity Dairy Co-op fiasco" is cleared up, more dairy lies should be started ii bridge, including more clisese plants. Purity Dairy Co-op went into receivership because of a debt situation and the province op- erated the facility until it sold the plant to Palm Dairies Ltd.

Dr. Hugh Horner, Alberta deputy premier and agriculture minister, said at a'press con- ference Thursday he could not comment too (ar because the situation was a constitutional matter. The province wants the right to control marketing of agricul- tural products within iis bor- ders. Rapeseed is considered a grain and therefore falls under (lie jurisdiction of the CWB, the federal body responsible for grain handling. "The view of Ihe Alberta gov- ernment remains the he said. "If we are to develop sec- ondary industry f o r agricul- tural processing crops grown in Alberta and hauled to pro- cessing plants in Alberta, we should have the jurisdiction re- lating to those crops." Most of Ihe rapeseed used by he crushing plant in Leth- iridge was grown in Alberta. Quotas number of bushels per acre allowed set by the CWB restricted the efficiency of the so to ensure adequate supplies, farmers deliverer more than the set quota. John Channon, Alberta grain commissioner, has indicated that "some time in the future" Alberta may move toward the establishment of a marketing board for grains. Dr. Horner said he hoped this wasn't necessary, inferring that he felt the matter could be set- tled in a different fashion. "OF boy lo anolhe I knew Ihe (nets al Me.

He said the establishment of :his plant would help the dairy industry in southern Alberta. P r o vincial participation in making money available to Al- berta's Indians, traditionally a federal responsibility, will be continued b y the Progressive Conservative government, said Dr. Horner. This is based on the fact thai the native co-operatives which have been getting provincial funds for business, must start to show a profit. Dr. Horner said the native people can't afford any more they must start to operate viable businesses. The days of native cattlemen coming to the government as sured of getting money are over, said Dr. Homer. The credibility of their own people to be able to do some thing successfully is on the line Once they can show a balancec budget, then Ihe money will be available, iic said.

More than 12 cars were Iriven over the solid yellow ine bordering the traffic is- and. The fine is creating 120 in revenue for the city in me-half hour. Even more cars were driven nto the left-turn lane, but then proceeded straight across 13th ;t. The fine for that offence is jlso ?10, creating an additional from the 20 drivers who vere responsible. Near accidents were wit nessed, caused by two cars angle parked on 6th Ave where signs clearly said par allel parking. Both parked car stuck into the west bound lanr on the west side of 13th St. A spokesman for the city en gineering department said h is not happy with the way the street markings have been mov- ing traffic at the intersection. He indicated a change should be made within a month, pos- sibly to cut back the boulevard on the south side of Gth Ave. to provide for a right turn lane and retaining the straight through and left-turn lanes. For one eight-hour period, an ;ngineering department count lows that 171 cars turned left, 006 turned right and straight through.
