Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March LETHBRIDQE HERALD Western MPs quarrel over inflation's effects OTTO LANG OTTAWA (CP) Westerner was pitted against Westerner in the Commons Friday as Progressive Conservative .Jack Homer ripped into government policies and Justice Minister Otto Lang fired back with some comments about the opposition. Mr. Homer, whose Crowfoot seat is in southwestern Alberta, accused the minority Liberal government of flagrant abuse of its spending privileges. "Wasteful expenditures by the government do not help in- flation at he said. "They spur it to greater heights. "No wonder you have galloping inflation in Canada today when you have this sloppy Mr. Lang, responsible for the wheat board and MP for Saskatchewan's Saskatoon- Humboldt riding, retorted that there are no easy solutions for 100 years of Western dis- satisfaction. "The answers are not found easily and painlessly. If they were, perhaps even some Conservative administrations of days gone by might have found and applied them. "Tories always seem to have the sure, quick, simple, readymade remedy, at least while they are not in government and not at all responsible for trying to do the job." CITES BOX CARS Mr. Homer drew the minis- ter's remarks by saying the current unavailability of grain boxcars is not the result of a shortage of rolling stock. The cars are not mov- ing. There have been many pictures showing boxcars sitting idle on sidings. The railroads have not put their heart and spirit into the movement of those cars." He said the number of grain- carrying cars has been reduced to from But that should not stop the government from moving the 16 million bushels needed to meet export requirements by the end of July. "If the turn-around time on a boxcar is three weeks, we would require something in the neighborhood of cars." He attacked Mr. Lang, saying he deliberately has pushed up the price of feed grains and "placed the1 livestock industry in jeopardy." He said the government should subsidize feed grains so livestock producers can cut costs and pass on the saving to the consumer. Mr. Lang said the grain-han- dling problem is just part of railway transportation diffi- culties, which include dis- criminatory freight rates. But, he said, the government has made "a good beginning" and intends to "press ahead with steps in many directions in respect of transportation and, indeed, in the handling of our grain." JACK HORNER Oil provinces being led down garden ARMY. NAVY AND AIR FORCE VETERANS IN CANADA Lethbridge Unit No. 34 GENERAL MEETING Election of Officers for 1974 Nomination and election of delegates to Dominion Convention Monday, March p.m. Advance Poll Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9 Between a.m. and p.m. Each Day ALL MEMBERS ARE URGED TO ATTEND VICTORIA (CP) Alberta and Saskatchewan are being "led down the garden path" by Prime Minister Trudeau in their separate, private meetings on what the price of Canadian crude oil should be, Premier Dave Barrett said Friday. He told the legislature the two provinces "are being pieced off and the rest of us are left out in the cold wondering what's going on." Mr. Barrett was critical of the two oil-producers acting by themselves. "I think Alberta and Saskatchewan are going to be led down the garden path if they think they can make a separate settlement." The premier was replying during consideration of his office's spending estimates to Allan Williams (L-West Vancouver-Howe who warned that in the present energy crisis, Western QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH CartHtod Owitol (Metallic Capitol BMg. PHONE: 328-7684 Canada must be strong enough to resist federal attempts to take over control of all natural resources, which now are under provincial jurisdiction. The premier defended and reiterated his policy of nationalization and federal control of all non-renewable resources gas, oil and coai but critized Ottawa for changing its policies so often. TOO MUCH CHANGE "I find it very difficult to deal with a government that constantly shifts the goalposts, not only between conferences, but between ministers as well. "The nature of the beast in Ottawa is amoeba-like. It's like punching and trying to get a reaction, it's like jelly." He also said that wide overlapping exists in the federal policy making structure, and said it's like a jungle or a maze, "a colossal empire." Responding to Mr. Williams' statement that Ottawa may be planning to attempt a takeover of natural resources besides gas and oil, the premier said: "You've touched a real nerve there."
