"In 1900 corporate business said farmers were selling grain to milts in oseess of tlie quota, so they must like it. In 1970 they say farmers are selling grain across provincial borders, so they must like this." Mr. Atkinson said that al- provincial governments and tlw wheat bourd have failed lo re- quire corporate business lo abide by existing grain laws. "Corporations have been per- mitted to proceed virtually tin- molested, individuals have been charged and penal- ized for offences." He noted thai if a farmer transports grain illegally across a provincial border, Ihe farmer may be charged wilh an off once. Why shouldn't tlie shippei and receiver be charged as well?

AIDS VIOLATORS The present situation, he sai is ready-made for any intcrcf which might wish to violate t marketing objectives of fi Wheat Board Act. "In times of stress corpora business may help or Wnd any public agency. It appea Ihey have chosen to hinder a disrupt wheat board oper lions." Mr. Atkinson criticized earlier testimony by E. J. McWilliain, president of the Canadian Grain Exchange, who recommended that Ihe present marketing sys- tem for western barley be changed to a basis similar to that used for U.S. soybeans. "This proposal is not accept- able to Canadian fanners. If it were accepted, marketing of western barley would be set back to a situation comparable lo that which faced wheat mar- jketing in 1335." In reply lo a query from Mr. Cleave, XIr. Atkinson said the I altitude of most farmers toward the federal government's wheat acreage rcduclion scheme is one of "almost tolal rejection when applied to i n (I i v i d u a 1 cases." He said he expects "very lit- tle'' acreage will be taken out ol wheat production as a result of cash incentives provided under the new program. "It should bo noted lhal much of Ihe land coming mil of wheat prcduclion was already commit- ted lo be taken out of produc- tion before Ihe government's plan was announced."
