Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Trudeau balks at announcing budget date OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau refused Wednesday to announce the date of the next federal budget but said it will attack inflation and deal with a series of other problems. Fielding a flood of Commons questions on the latest rise in the consumer price index, announced earlier Wednesday, he said 60 per cent of the rise is caused by increased food prices arid half of that portion by higher beef prices. He told Opposition Leader Robert Stanfieid that a new report is due next week from the food prices review board and it will cover increased beef costs. He hoped it would clarify matters. "1 don't think it is very gal- lant of the prime minister to try and hide behind Mrs. Mr. Stanfieid re- plied, a reference to board chairman Beryl Plumptre. "Herb Gray (consumer af- fairs minister) is already there." shouted another Pro- gressive Conservative MP. Mr. Stanfieid said inflation is running through'all sectors of the economy. He asked whether the government will announce new measures to fight it. LIVING COSTS RISE Statistics Canada reported Wednesday that the cost of liv- ing jumped one per cent in February, a faster rate of increase than the 9.1 per cent recorded for all last year. Mr. Trudeau said new plans to increase food stocks were outlined in the Feb. 27 throne speech and the government is moving ahead with its program. David Lewis, New Demo- cratic Party leader, urged legislation to give the food prices review board power to roll back unjustified price increases. The agency now operates in an advisory capacity to the government. Mr. Trudeau repeated earlier promises to step in when companies, after a fair hearing, refuse to follow advice from the board. "This is the position we have always he said.

New federal program announced Ron Basford million urban fund TORONTO (CP) Increasing the price of domestic oil to existing world prices is not in the national interest, Ontario Energy Minister Darcy McKeough said Wednesday. "The disruption and distortion would be Mr. McKeough said during a lengthy statement in the On- tario legislature on oil prices. He referred to the federal freeze on the price of domestic oil at a barrel until the end of this month and said Ottawa has not made any statement on what the policy will be after that. But Alberta and Saskatche- wan must not be allowed to in- crease oil prices to the current world price of a barrel. "The additional cost to On- tario oil users would be in ex- cess of a billion dollars a very close to 20 cents a gallon for fuel oil or Mr. McKeough said. The energy minister said the opportunities for Canada were great .because commodity prices are rising and Canada is rich in commodities. But Canada can only take advantage of its position if the price of commodities is con- trolled. "I wish to underline our absolute conviction that escalating our domestic price of oil up to existing world prices flies in the face of the national Mr. McKeough said. If we escalate the price of petroleum to current world levels we will have a rich Al- berta largely at the expense of the rest of Canada." "We would be turning our back on nation-building and fo- cussing attention on the build- ing of great economies in the oil producing provinces."

Open Tonight1 Urban fund established By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) A million fund for a five-year urban demonstration program was announced by Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford Wednesday. He told the Commons the fund will operate between the 1975-76 and the 1980-81 fiscal years and will back demonstration programs in such areas as housing, sewage treatment recycling, public transportation, and financing new communities. Mr. Basford also said Dr. Kenneth Hare, professor of geography and physics at the University of Toronto, will head a nine-man advisory committee for the program. The money will support fed- eral, provincial and municipal pilot projects on urban prob- lems as well as proposals sug- gested by private industry, the minister said. 'I would hope that over the five years we can translate this initial million into innovate projects valued at many times that Mr. Basford said. The minister said that all regions will get a fair share of the benefits from the fund and demonstration program. TO ADVISE MINISTER Project proposals will be screened by Dr. Hare's advi- sory committee which will ad- vise the minister on the poten- tial of individual projects 'to help in solving urban problems, Mr. Basford said. The suggestions also will be handled by a secretariat in the urban affairs department to manage Canada's participation in the 1976 human settlements conference in Vancouver. The world conference will deal with growing urban problems. An urban affairs background paper says that projects may include new technologies for such things as waste disposal and energy conservation or outline new policies such as changes in municipal government structure. The projects must meet cer- tain guides: must solve specific problems rather than describing them; must illustrate a new approach to problems; must fit into the physical, economic, social and cultural needs of the area; should illustrate how other levels of government may fit .into the plan: should demonstrate how local skills and resources can be included; could show how problems of inadequate financing, public ignorance or apathy and bureaucratic problems could be overcome to speed solutions to urban issues. SAYS IT IS FLUFF Conservative housing Eldon Woolliams' (Calgary North) said the program "is a lot of fluff." The minister must have been "sniffing glue." The demonstration program would lead to new technology in many fields "but it isn't going to build one new house." Yet the cost of housing was soaring and there were serious shortages in cities like Vancouver and Toronto. Mr. Broadbent said the pro- gram "involves the wrong spending at the wrong time and in the completely wrong area." The million was money down the drain. The government already had spent about million in recent years on research and development but little of it had been published. "Most of the studies have led to a total inaction." But there was a strong need for more government action in acquiring blocks of land to help reduce land costs. And the government should insist on a six-per-cent interest ceiling on mortgage loans.

Paralysed youth responds (CP) Edgar Reiprich the Canadian youth who was paralysed from the waist down following a motorcycle crash, now is able to move his right foot and flex his right knee, says Tass, the official Soviet news agency.-. The 17-year-old Toronto youth underwent surgery at the Polenov neurosurgical hospital here March 5 to relieve a spinal compression. Soviet doctors said .then it may take several, weeks to determine whether Reiprich would ever walk again. However, the youth is begin- ning to respond. Tass said Wednesday that Mrs. Stephanie Reiprich, who is with her son, wept when she saw Edgar bend his right knee at a doctor's request. But the youth has to make a great deal of effort to accom- plish this movement, Tass said. During the years of paralysis Reiprich lost control of his limbs and his weakened muscles do not obey his commands adequately. Another patient in the ward. West German Heinrich Ol- schewsky. underwent surgery ,iast January and is walking in jthe hospital about one hour a day. He is to be discharged shortly. Leningrad doctors said the recovery in such cases is slow.' But Mrs. Reiprich was quoted as saying she was happy be- yond any words to see hope in her son's eyes. Edgar was quoted as simply saying he was lucky to have ceme to Leningrad. us?
