Cut back on quality purchases High prices hit MPs too OTTAWA (CP) Consider these four comments on the cost of living: "I wouldn't want to raise another family under the conditions of today." "I'm never sure in the supermarket whether I'll have enough to pay the cashier." "I must admit that we wince a bit when the kids tuck into a third helping of roast beef." "At the end of the month, I have nothing left over." Average consumers scraping by on minimum wages? No. The comments are those of four MPS, one from each of the parties represented in the Commons, and all earning at least a year with another in tax- free expenses. Among them they have a total of 37 children. Liberal Joe Guay from the Winnipeg-area riding of St. Boniface is the father of seven. Only two children are at but he says it's "much tougher to raise a family now than it was eight or 10 years ago." Newfoundland Conservative James McGrath (St. John's East) says he now takes with him on his six or seven trips a month to the supermarket, compared v ith a year ago. But he says he always is left wondering whether he'll have enough to pay the bill when he shops for his family of "nine if you include the dog." New Democrat food critic Terry Grier (Toronto-Lake- shore) says his family of five has cut back on "some quality food purchases." While he, like Mr. McGrath, says he probably is in better shape than a lot of consumers, he admits that his family has had to make some sacrifices. Adrien Lambert a farmer and father of 21, says the nine members of his family still at home go through worth of groceries every week, up from a week a year ago. "To be honest, my salary is enough to provide a reasonable life with my Mr. Lambert says. "But there is never anything left over." The four MPs represent the major Atlantic, Quebec, Ontario and the West. All say they have felt the 17-per-cent rise in food costs during the last year. Mr. Guay argues that Canadian living conditions remain "better than those anywhere else in the but admits that buys only half a bag of groceries in Winnipeg. Mr. McGrath, his party's food critic, says his monthly grocery bill has risen by during the last year. After deductions, he says, he takes home a month. "And there's never don't know how we do it." Mr. Grier, who spends about a week on food and household items, says his family has been affected in little ways. "We used to go through 22 quarts of milk a week, a lot of it chocolate milk." Now his children use chocolate mix and milk powder for their favorite drink. His party says the food prices review board should be given the power to roll back price increases. Mr. Lambert says it's all a matter of corporate profit. "Consumers are exploited; farmers are exploited." It was time to give the food prices review board enough power to keep prices down. "All the board does now is watch prices rise, and the consumer gets no good from it all." I -The Herald- Family System devised for housewives to give to CPP TORONTO (CP) A system has been worked out that would enable housewives to join the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) as contributors, says June Menzies, vice- president of the National Advisory Council on the Status of Women. Mrs. Menzies said Tuesday in a telephone interview from her Winnipeg home that the plan was drawn up by a subcommittee to the advisory council to the CPP. The plan will be submitted in May to the council it Ottawa, she said. The plan proposes that when only one spouse works, 50 per cent of the contributions of that spouse will go towards the other's pension, Mrs. Menzies said. Where both are working, 50 per cent of the contributions of each will go toward the pension of the other, she said. Consequently, when the wife or husband withdraws from the labor market, the payments of the spouse toward the other will continue. "It appeals to she said. "It means a woman will be a contributor throughout her life, and if the marriage breaks up she still has protection." Members of the subcommittee are D. G. M. Coxe, a Waterloo, Ont., lawyer; Valerie Kazurek, a Windsor, Ont., insurance salesman, and J. T. Birken- shaw, a Toronto actuary. Cancer institute pushes for tobacco legislation VANCOUVER (CP) The executive director of the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Robert Taylor of Toronto, said the federal govern- ment is afraid to push for legislation clas- sifying tobacco as a drug because of its minority status. "We know tobacco smoking leads to cancer and that every year millions of dollars are spent in trying to treat patients who have cancer because they smoke, but tobacco remains mysteriously outside the category of either drug or food." Dr. Taylor said in an interview. "Our people have tried to approach government representatives in the past regarding re-classification of tobacco but nothing is done about it. "The latest word back from our sources indicates the present government is really scared to push the issue because it has a minority standing and wouldn't receive any support for such a move. "Besides, we all know that the government skims off something like million in tax revenues from the tobacco industry. Ironically, it probably spends close to that amount in providing payment for treatment of cancer." Leo Leavy, district inspector of products for the federal department of consumer and corporate affairs, confirmed that tobacco is neither considered a drug nor a food. "No. it's classified as a gentle vice. All kidding aside though, it falls into the category of a regular crop just like apples or pears. "The federal government's department of agriculture promotes the growing of I -bacco." Andy O'Brien he describes how Johnny Esaw, CTV's director of sports, has turned his love of sports into a successful career. In this Saturday's Weekend Magazine. (he Uthbridge Herald Supermarkets gain popularity PARIS (CP) After ignoring them for a long time, the French are showing a keen interest for immense American-style supermarkets and they now can be found across most of the country. The expansion of these large commercial centres was slowed by the traditional French attachment to specialty shops and small neighborhood businesses, places where clients know each other and congregate after work. Factors leading to their ex- pansion included migration to- wards large urban centres, immigration, refrigerators, increases in the cost of living and growing awareness of the bargains available in these immense markets where prices have been found to be about 13 per cent lower than in independent shops. The number of super- markets has more than tripled in six years, passing to from 821. Hypermarkets, with a floor surface of more than square feet and having a large assortment of perishables and non- perishables, have grown to 250 from 12. Super and hypermarkets last year accounted for 27 per cent of the country's retail food sales, and 13 per cent of total retail sales. They reported sales of about billion, an increase of billion over 1972 and billion more than in 1968, and employ 10 per cent of the retail business labor force. While small retailers cannot carry the cost of large-scale publicity, the giants take full advantage of the latest publicity techniques. A large number of small retailers, who feel threatened by the growth of these large- surface enterprises, are grouping together in chain stores and purchasing groups. As a result, they can offer their goods at prices slightly below their independent counterparts.
