Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 26, 197? - THE IfTHBRIDGI HERALD - f J LEIGHTON BUCKWELL CHARLES DRAIN Southern Alberta needs B.C. water EDMONTON (CP) - Southern Alberta needs more water, Leighton Buckwell (SC - Mac-leod) said in the legislature Thursday. He urged the provincial government to get it from British Columbia. "The availability of water will be the prime factor in determining growth in southern Alberta," he said in proposing a motion urging the government to conduct studies to determine the feasibility of securing water supplies from B.C. The resolution says negotiations should be held with the B.C. government and the International Joint commission "for the purpose of seeking to divert, BAT-TREE CONTEST Win - 1 year supply of No. 950D batteries and a No. 60 Magnet Flashlight.

After Mr. Buckwell adjourned debate, seconder Charlie Drain (SC-Pincher Creek - Crows-nest) received the unanimous consent of the house to keep the motion at the top of the order paper. Reservoir poses no threat VICTORIA (CP) - Ed Vernon, chief of fisheries management for the provincial government, says the Duncan Dam reservoir poses no threat to the rich Kootenay Lake sports fishery in the British Columbia interior. Mr. Vernon dismissed the claim by Dr. A. H. Acara, a research scientist fired by the government this month, that high levels of carbon dioxide caused by rotting vegetation in the reservoir may be the reason for fish kills in the lake The reservoir is situated two miles above the north arm of Kootenay Lake. Only a small part of the reservoir was cleared and the remainder has been described as being choked with dead trees and floating debris. A million whitefish died in Kootenay Lake in the fall of 1969, two years after the dam went into operation, and spawning trout from the lake died from another mysterious ailment last spiring. Dr. Acara, who headed a re search project into the effect of the Columbia River treaty dams on the lake, said his prediction that there would be more fish kills this year was responsible for his dismissal. Controlled wheat production is recommended OTTAWA (CP) - Carefully-1 controlled wheat production and a systematic approach to selling grain were recommended Thursday in a report by the Canadian wheat board. The report is the result of a special committee study initiated last July into the marketing of grain under the direction of M. W. Menzies. It was tabled in the Commons by Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat board. The report says it is essential to have policies governing the production of wheat if an integrated system of selling is to be achieved. It suggests that there should never be a commercial carryover of wheat exceeding 200 million bushels and that no more than 200 to 250 million bushels should be stockpiled on farms. "Production' policy should not only aim at these carryover targets, but should ensure that they are not substantially exceeded." Last year, nearly a billion bushels of surplus wheat piled up. This year stocks are expected to be about 750 million bushels. A number of other suggestions were made to increase the effectiveness of Canadian grain marketing. All are predicated on the assumption that the wheat board system of centralized selling should continue. The report recommends that marketing should be done through an integrated structure of farmers, government and transportation, storage and handling systems under a permanent policy body. A grains policy group would weld the structure together. The marketing review committee says the vice-chairman of the policy group should be the chief commissioner of the wheat board, but that all segments of the grain industry, including farmers, should be represented in the body. "The central position of producers in Canada's grain economy should be recognized by giving producer representatives a majority in the group." The policy group would "gen erate proposals and make firm recommendations to the government" but would have no operating authority. The report describes the group as the "nerve centre of the proposed integrated structure. ' It stresses the need for a policy designed to stabilize the income of Prairie grain growers and establishment of a protein grading system for wheat.

Reg. $107$ ............... * LISTEN TO THEM TODAY AT 312 8th STREET SOUTH Lang and presented in revised form in the Commons two weeks ago-would establish a joint fund into which both farmers and the government would contribute and from which farmers could draw when their yearly income dropped below the average of the five previous years. Under the program, the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act under which the government pays the cost of stockpiling any wheat over 178 million bushels, would also be dropped. The wheat board report supports this. The new system of grading grain on protein content will be established when the revised Canada Grain Act comes into effect April i. The report recommends a more systematic approach to selling Canadian grain by setting sales targets for different grades and qualities of grain and for different sales periods. Although no drastic changes in the marketing system are suggested, the report wants present efforts geared more to a planned approach. The six-man committee says the selling efforts of the wheat board should be beefed up by "providing for removing and adding agents" and offering a system of bonuses for agents bringing in the most business. As well, the board's organiza- tion should be streamlined to "bring it in line with modern management concepts." The report suggests assigning board commissioners functional areas of responsibility with clear lines of authority. Career opportunities both within the wheat board and throughout the grain industry should be promoted. "The Canadian grain industry has not enjoyed the glamor of some other industries and has not offered the same attractive opportunities to able young people seeking careers." Mr. Lang said he is pleased with the committee's report and confident the recommendations would help in the establishment of policies designed to do the "best possible marketing job for Prairie grain producers.' Recommendations concerning the government's role in marketing would be given careful study. Newspaper articles studied EDMONTON (OP) - speaker Art Dixon said Thursday he is studying newspaper articles which may constitute an attack on the privileges of the Alberta Legislature. "It has been drawn to my attention that articles in the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal March 24 contained implications on the impartiality of the chair and reflections on rulings by the speaker," Mr. Dixon said. "I have taken these and other statements under advisement." The rulings in question were made by Mr. Dixon Monday in the case of a cabinet minister using an individual's confidential file to rebut opposition criticism. OUT OF ORDER After getting a vote of confidence from the house first, the Speaker ruled that the entire proceedings were out of order and should be discontinued, The opposition Progressive Conservatives appealed the ruling but were defeated 51 to 10. Standings in the 65-seat house are: Social Credit 55, Conservative 10. Reaction to Mr. Dixon's ruling, made after the question had been debated for three hours last Friday, prompted Premier Harry Strom to deny allegations that he attempted to influence the Speaker's decision. Mr. Dixon is the Social Credit member for Calgary South. The matter has been referred to the standing committee on privileges and elections.
