Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March IT, 1971 - THE ICTHBRIDOI HERALD - , PCs add thunder to house storm OTTAWA (CP) - Gerald W. Baldwin (PC-Peace River) added thunder Wednesday to a Commons storm ignited by former Conservative prime minister John Diefenbaker as the House grappled with an obscure government bill aimed at closer scrutiny of regulations passed by various agencies. . Near the close of debate, Mr. Baldwin blasted the government for becoming slaves to the public service. "It is the civil servants of this city who run this country." The debate showed the government's inability to act with certainty when given the responsibility of leadership, he said. The bill, which passed report stage on an informal voice vote, was expected to receive third and final reading without further debate today. Earlier Wednesday, Mr. Diefenbaker (Prince Albert; delivered a thunderous assault on a number of government policies, predicted the arrogance of the government would cause its defeat and gave a mild reprimand to the Parliamentary Press Gallery. Today, the Commons resumes second-reading debate on a bill extending the three-per-cent surtax on personal and corpo- Potent cancer inducer found by scientists rate income tax for another year. The measure, introduced in 1968 as a temporary tax, also enables manufacturers and pro-cesors to value new-machinery investments at 115 per cent of actual cost. Two Conservative amendments to the regulations bill were both defeated 103 to 84. Standing in the 264-seat Commons: Liberal 151, Conservative 72, NDP 23, Creditiste 13, independent 1, vacant 4. Mr. Diefenbaker said he was surprised to see most cabinet ministers leave the Commons after the daily question period instead of remaining to take part in debates like the one held Wednesday. He said arrogance was the main reason the Liberal government of Louis St. Laurent lost the 1957 general election to the Conservatives. Mr. Diefenbaker served as prime minister from 1957 to 1963 before being defeated. The government bill is designed to guarantee that existing rights and freedoms are not infringed by regulations of agencies. It provides for registration of all regulations so they can be centrally controlled. The clerk of the Privy Council would act as registrar. OTTAWA (CP) - Scientists checking food safety have found samples of salami, sausages, bacon and mushrooms containing a potent cancer inducer, dimethyl netrosamine. One salami and one sausage also contained an unidentified nitrosamine. Dr. Ross Chapman, assistant deputy health minister, reporting on the findings in an interview, said the significance as a healtyi hazard of these trace chemicals in such low concentrations is unknown. But food and drug authorities are concerned about their presence in foods and about the possibility that nitrosamines might be formed in the digestive, system. This could happen from the chemical combination in the body of the nitrates and nitrites in certain foods and from amines in meats. For that reason, the law strictly limits the amounts of nitrates and nitrites which may be used in foods as preservatives and coloring agents. Nitrosamines are described as "one of the most formidable and versatile groups of carcinogens yet discovered," in a just-published paper by five United States food and drug administration chemists. "We know that man has been exposed to traces of nitrosamines since he began using nitrates and nitrites, arod that was a long time ago," Dr. Chapman said. But because it seemed important to determine the cancer-inducing potential of nitrosamines, the food and drug direc- torate has been conducting tests j with guinea pigs.  Over a long period they are being fed with known levels of dimethyl nitrosamine and sodium nitrite. The hope is to find the cancer-producing potential and then go on to study normal diets for any adverse effects from levels there. Nitrosamines also have been reported in smoked fish in the United States, which permits use of nitrites in the preserving process in this food. Canada and some other countries do not allow nitrites in smoked fish. In the face of the possible hazard associated with nitrates and nitrites, the sensible thing might seem to be to ban them altogether. Bacon and ham of a grey color and different taste might be considered worth it. Not so, says Dr. Chapman. Both chemicals provide important protection against food poisoning, including a fatal type of bacterial poison, botulism. The food scientists began checking for nitrosamines following reports in the world sci- entific literature of their discovery in meat, fish, cheese, flour and mushroms. They picked up in different parts of the country 10 samples of wheat, 24 of cheese, 21 smoked fish. Relief payments hassle resolved EDMONTON (CP) - An Al-b e r t a cabinet minister said here that the Fort Chipewyan reidents who had their welfare payments cut when they received buf f a 1 o meat now have resolved their problems with a provincial department. "Everything is fine," said Social Development Minister Ray Speaker. "The problem has been resolved as far as we're concerned." Stan Daniels', president of the Alberta Metis Association, said the government has reviewed "specific cases" and adjustments were made. Frank Ladouceur, president of the Fort Chipewyan Metis Association, said that "so far nobody has complained of cutbacks on their vouchers this month." A controversy erupted following the killing in January of 191 buffalo to supplement the food supply of 1,400 residents of the Fort Chipewyan area. The animals were killed with" the government's permission. When the Metis families on provincial welfare collected their monthly vouchers, 13 of 27 families on the province's northeastern welfare rolls found their grocery vouchers reduced by up to 25 per cent under government policy. Mr. Speaker said the government policy has not changed Pattern and individual cases still are "assessed according to need basis."
