"We cannot tolerate these costs. Nor can Midwest fuel consumers tolerate additional delay .in delivery of North Slope natural gas to their homes."

Labor shadow-boxing OTTAWA (CP) Labor min- isters attending a two-day fed- eral-provincial conference spent Wednesday shadow-boxing, ex- changing information and views on a variety of labor issues. Topics of debate included the compressed work-week, the right to strike and causes of il- legal strikes. Tne ministers are expected to get down to some firmer discussion on minimum wages and jurisdictional prob- lems today. Federal minister John Munro and seven of his provincial counterparts all took part in the first day of the closed talks. But when the meeting broke up they had few revelations to make. The ministers did reach agreement en the need for a joint federal-provincial study Homer: gotft lax on farm costs By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Alberta MP Jack Horncr Wednesday vigorously condemned what he charged was a lack of action by the mi- nority Liberal government to control galloping inflation and Ecdd that the proposed food price review board will be "powerless" to do anything con- crete. Mr. Homer made the statement after Sta- tistics Canada had officially re- vealed that the cost of oper- ating farms in Canada has gone up by more than ten per cent in the period of a year. The government agency said farm input prices rose 6.1 per cent in the first quarter of 1973, an increase of 10.2 per cent since the first quarter of 1772. Livestock feed, feeder cattle, seed, labor, machinery, motor vehicle operation, building re- placement, fertilizer and mort- gage credit all contributed t o the soaring ccsts of fanning. HIGHEU PRICES "These cost forces are not teing contained by the Liberal government's policies and will inevitably lead to higher prices unless Parliament finds the courage to institute the Con- sorv'Etive proposal for a 90-day freeze en all prices and said Mr. Horncr. who captured well over 70 per cent of the vote in his constituency last election rlrty. The Alberta MP said his p-.ri.y's proposal fr tem- pnrryy and prici freeze along with expansionary moves to create more jobs for Can- aria's half-a-million unemployed would cover wholesale and re- tail food prices but not hinder Che farmer from getting his fair share at the "farm gats." "Our suggestion could provide immediate relief for the house- wife, but would also provide re- lie: to the farmer who is facing runaway production costs." What's more, he said, the pro- pcsai would give Canadian MPs and officials 90 clear days to "hammer out" specific meas- ures to control the real in- flationary forces in the coun- ccsts and struc- tural inefficiencies. IGNORED REPORT The Crowfoot MP said the Librral jovernmerjt could have prevented many food price in- creases if in the past five years it had been willing to take real action to solve escalating farm operating costs. He charged that the govern- ment had ignored recommenda- tions made in the Barber Com- mission Report on Farm Ma- chuTsry. "The Barber report suggested many measures over two years ago to reduce farm machinery costs. Nothing significant has been done. Many suggestions have been made by us and oth- ers to redress transportation, fuel, and credit costs. Again, nothing was done by the gov- ernment." Mr. Homer, a veteran MP who was elected to the Com- mons in the John Diefenbaker SOft-scat sweep of Canada in 1058, wos recently elee'ed chair- man of thi standing Parlia- mentary committee on trans- portation matters. i into the causes of illegal work i stoppages. About 40 per cent of mr.n-; days k.-st because cf work siop- j pages last year in the federal i jurisdiction resulted from wild- i cat or illegal strikes. Provincial ministers, how- even were generally content to say the talks were "inter- "mostly as Wednesday's session closed. Quebec minister Jean Courno-! yer, who has brought a set of discussion papers on minimum wages and jurisdictional prob- i lems to the conference for de-; bate, said the ministers were i being prudent and searching one another out. "Nothing pre- cise was decided." he added. Even though tire Quebec pa- pers were not due for presenta- tion to the meeting urrlil today, he made them available to the i press at a news conference; i Wednesday. In them, Quebec took a i directly opposite position to that j outlined by Mr. Munro earlier i in the day on minimum wage advances. Where Mr. Munro espoused solid advances as opposed to in-: creases based on escalation for- mulas, the Quebec paper was against firm increases and wanted the use cf escalator clauses endorsed. 1 The paper said gradual in- j creases avoid panic and also make it easier for the provinces to pay for i'hcm. Among other problems Que- bee wants to raise are questions j concerning jurisdiction over i workers employed on federal work sites and over inter- i provincial truck drivers. Mr. Munro said the federal I government was interested in the experience of provincial governments which have allowed a modified which means the same working hours a week concentrated into three or four days. Some firms under federal ju- risdiction have asked for per- mission to alter their work hours to include a compressed request which spurred concern among federal officials that perhaps the Canada Labor Code should be amended to al- low such flexibility. Employers now must pay overtime for any work over eight hours a day. But the Canadian Labor Con- gress has opposed the modified week, arguing that there may be more accidents on the job with longer hours. Mr. Munro's department is taking a hard look at the possi- bility of amending thb code, seeking more information be- fore a decision is made. Some provinces allow exten- sion of the working day under permit and that idea ha.? worked well where used, Mr. Munro said. You've turned the clocks we've turned prices back, way back. So you'll see enough daylight to buy the car of your dreams! You only have to look at these great savings to know And lets the sunshine in. 2S46A 1971 TOYOTA CORONA MARK I! 3116A 1973 COMET GT 302 V8 motor, auto, trans., radio, bucket seats.
