Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta t - THf IITHMIDOI HERALD - TuMday, March 16, 1971 - Foreign control *o be expanded Policy to stabilize West farm income announced OTTAWA (CP) - The government will expand areas of industry which will not be allowed to fall under foreign control, Prime Minister Trudeau said Monday in the Commons. He said in reply to George Hees (PC-Prince Edward-Hastings) that banking, communications and uranium are already areas in which foreign control will not be permitted. The government would announce as soon as possible other areas where the same rules will apply, the prime minister said. He did not indicate what industries will be covered or when the announcement will be made. Last week, he said policy on foreign ownership will be announced "in due course." Gold Lake man found dead in field COLD LAKE (CP) - Edward Swan, 36, of Cold Lake was found dead In a field near this town about 150 miles northeast of Edmonton. RCMP said he is believed to have died of natural causes. Mr. Hees raised the matter at the start of the question period by asking why the government was following an apparently inconsistent policy in relation to uranium and oil. Mr. Hees said the government had instructed Denison Mines, a uranium company, not to sell control to U.S. interests. But in the current case of Home Oil Ltd. of Calgary it was negotiating possible purchase of controlling interest in the firm. Mr. Trudeau said he did not see any inconsistency though he acknowledged that the two decisions were ad hoc-that is, made for a specific purpose. The prime minister said that constitutionally the government had authority in the field in ura nium, but not in the field of oil. Mr. Hees asked when a consistent policy will be adopted. Mr. Trudeau said one is being brought forward us soon as possible. However, such policy would not cover all cases. There would still have to be specific decisions for specific cases. The elements of a general policy already existed in that the government had determined that banks, financial institutions and mass communications industries would not be allowed to fall under foreign control.

OTTAWA (CP) - Revised proposals designed to stabilize the income of Prairie grain farmers were announced in the Commons Monday by Otto Lang, minister responsible for wheat. The proposals, which include a long-promised $100 million cash payment for the current crop year, specify more precisely the nature of the income stabilization program presented last fall. The one-shot payment, intended to increase the 1970 income of grain farmers to about the same average level they've received during the last five years, would be provided to all holders of Canadian wheat board permit books as of March 1, 1971 on the basis of $1.40 to $1.50 a cultivated acre up to a maximum of 640 acres. The payment is designed as a transitional step between the income stabilization plan and the scrapping of the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act, under which the government pays the storage cost of stockpiled grain over 178 million bushels. HINGES ON LEGISLATION The $100 million payment would hinge on the passage of legislation setting up the revised income stabilization plan. Under the plan, farmers would initially pay up to $300 a year into a joint producer-government fund. The farmer's contribution is based on two per cent of $15,000 worth of deliv- New peace bid appeal is rejected OTTAWA (CP) - An Indian proposal that the tripartite truce commission for Laos join in another peace appeal was rejected as "totally inadequate" today by an external affairs department spokesman. The proposal was put forward at a meeting last Thursday in Vientiane, the Laotian capital. At the same time, Canada's own suggestion that the commission investigate the presence of all foreign troops in the southeast Asia kingdom was rejected by Poland, third member of the commission. The attitude of India, chairman of the commission, amounted to a verbal abstention on Canada's proposal, reports from Vientiane said. The truce commission, established under the 1954 Geneva agreements on Indochina, can undertake an investigation only when there is unanimity among its members. Canadian sources noted that a commission appeal last summer for a cessation of hostilities in Laos brought no response from the warring factions. eries of the six quota grains-wheat, barley, oats, flax, rape-seed and rye. The two-per-cent contribution is down from three per cent originally suggested last Oct. 29 in the first income stabilization policy proposals. The government, for its part, would contribute four per cent of the value of all grain deliveries or twice the amount shelled out by farmers, "whichever amount is greater." "In the event that adjustments in contributions are required in the future to sustain the fund, the ratio of two dollars of federal government contribution for each dollar of producer contribution would be maintained," Mr. Lang said. Payments from the funds, as originally proposed, would be started when the total income in the grain industry drops below the current five-year average. Farmers, as a whole, would be paid the difference between the total gross income of the industry during the current book-keeping year for crops and the average of such receipts during the preceding five years. An individual farmer would be paid on a formula based on Special hearing proposed CALGARY (CP) - The Le Dain Commission has been asked to hold a special hearing to take testimony on charges that ponce in Calgary are forcing students to help make drug arrests. The request for a special closed hearing was made in a telegram from Donald Bruce, director of the city's drug information centre. The telegram was sent to Gerald Le Dain, chairman of the federal commission studying the non-medical use of drugs. Mr. Brace's request was prompted by recent stories in the Calgary Albertan which said students were being offered immunity on drug charges to inform on their friends. RCMP and city police have denied the charges. Mr. Le Dain said in a telephone interview that he would give consideration to the request after he has received more Information. The telegram said the hearing should be closed to protect students and police officers who testified. LARGE BAY .

Special provision would be made for persons entering or leaving grain farming, and for persons suffering insured crop losses. Producers would be able to include income from crop insurance claims in their total three-year income. The joint fund would be operated on a self-sustaining basis, Mr. Lang said. Any deficits would be made by loans from the federal government. The revised proposals drop a suggestion in the original policy paper that losses in the Canadian wheat board's pool account for wheat, barley and oats be recovered from surpluses in future pools. The revised plan suggests losses be paid from the stabilization plan. Chicken farmer kills 2,000 during strike HAMILTON, Bermuda (CP) - A chicken farmer slaughtered about 2,000 of his birds Monday because a strike by marine pilots is preventing entry of all ships, including one laden with grain to feed the chickens. El Conyers, who took his dead chickens to a local dump to be burned, said if the strike is not settled by Thursday he will have to kill another 2,000 birds. The strike by 20 marine pilots has crippled shipping to and from Bermuda. About 330 other marine workers are striking in sympathy with the pilots. By Wednesday about 60 per cent of the island's dairy farmers are expected to begin slaughtering their animals because of a lack of fodder. The strike began Jan. 9 when the marine pilots, demanding a 15-per-cent pay increase, were told by the government it would approve only a 10-per-cent increase. A chief pilot now earns $8,660. The government offered $9,400 but the union wants $9,779. Shrum summonsed in assault case VANCOUVER (CP) - Dr Gordon Shrum, chairman of British Columbia Hydro, Crown corpoi*ation, has been summonsed on a charge of common assault and will appear in court Wednesday. The charge was laid by Mark Warrior of Vancouver following a public meeting at the University of British Columbia at which demonstrators prevented Justice Minister John Turner from speaking.
