Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMday, March 19, 1974-THE LETH8RIDQE HERALD-9 No subsidy to be paid on U.S. cattle-Whelan By DOUG SMALL OTTAWA (CP) Will a share of the government's new beef subsidy be paid on imported American cattle? "No Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said Monday. Opposition critics and agriculture department officials '.vere less sure, suggesting that processors and other beef importers may be able to draw the seven- cents-a-pound payments on some animals shipped in from the United States. The three-day-old subsidy program created near havoc on cattle markets Monday as buyers waited for the government to clarify a number of technical points, specifically the proper method of making payments. The situation spilled into the Commons where Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield and a number of cattle-country MPs pressed Mr. Whelan to explain the program. At one point, Mr. Whelan was asked to replace it with something else. Mr. Whelan replied that de- tailed instructions would be sent to all markets, buyers and MPs later in the day. He countered charges that imported cattle could qualify for subsidy payments and said that fattened U.S. cattle are shipped into Canada on con- signment to packing firms. The government would be able to distinguish between domestic and alien cattle by looking at company books. HP added in a Commons reply to Bert Hargrave Hat) that he hopes markets soon will be over by domestic cattle. HOLDING BACK Officials explained later that many cattlemen are holding animals off the market while they wait for the price to rise. The subsidies should encourage "heavier deliveries. But they added that some American imports could qualify for the payments. For instance, a farmer, who imported feeder steers from the U.S., could fatten them, sell them and still be eligible for the subsidy. Traditionally, cattlemen ex- port feeder cattle to the U.S. and American cattlemen sell a smaller number of fattened, or finished, cattle back on the Canadian market.

(Canada Customs boors moved one boor earlier Jan. 6 when Montana went on daylight But roughly feeder cattle are shipped into the do- mestic market every year and officials said the subsidy could encourage even heavier im- ports. Mr. Hargrave also suggested that farmers might import cattle nearly ready for market, fatten them up for two weeks, then sell them for the going price plus the seven- cent subsidy. Mr. Whelan said the pay- ments must be made to domestic producers and that processors must prove they gave the subsidies for Canadian cattle "or they won't be paid." NOT WORRIED The problem of subsidies for U.S. imports "is the least of my worries." "American cattle are a big headache, but it's infantile compared with the headaches involved in putting this program in Mr. Whelan said outside the House. A bigger worry was providing the subsidy to farmers who sold their animals to local butcher shops. Unlike large packing and processing firms, smaller buyers might not be acquainted with the program and farmers would not receive subsidies. The subsidy program, an- nounced last Friday, was adopted to counter the effects of a flood of U.S. imports that have driven down domestic prices to producers. Farmers have complained that they have been selling cattle for to below cost. Mr. Whelan has said the government adopted the subsidy method of helping cattlemen to keep down prices to consumers. Rather than slapping on a protective tariff to keep imports move Mr. Whelan says would force retail prices the government opted for the subsidy which consumers pay for through their taxes.

The report said alcohol was smuggled into Boy Scout camps and some Scouts took drugs. GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) The gasolsine shortage in the United States will encourage more Americans to travel through Canada on east-west journeys, the travel industry association of Alberta was told here. Jack Hayes of Shell Oil Ltd. in Vancouver told the association's annual meeting that Canadians can expect to pay higher prices for gasoline in the near future but nothing on the scale of what Americans will probably experience. "But high prices won't deter Mr. Hayes said. "They'll travel if gasoline is a dollar a gallon." Jack Barber of CP Air in Vancouver said 1.4 million people have bought tickets to attend the Spokane World Fair "and many of these will travel through Canada to get to Spokane because there is no gas shortage here." Delegates passed a resolution for the second straight year recommending that an Alberta cabinet portfolio be created to deal exclusively with tourism. Ken Noble of Calgary, the association's executive director, said tourism is the province's third largest dollar -earner million last year and more could be done to educate residents of the province on the fine points of playing host to travellers. Bob Dowling, minister of consumer affairs responsible for tourism, expressed concern with the travel industry's rapid growth. "There was a nine-per-cent increase and we'll likely have the same again this year. We have 4o make sure our facilities can handle this growth before we draw too many people in." Mr. Dowling said the pressure has to be taken off Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and Jasper and more travellers funnelled into the Peace River, Cypress Hills and other areas of the province.
