Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, May 3, 1973 ouf of council's activities Consumer Council of Canada criticizes business community MONTREAL (CP) The chairman of the Consumer Council of Canada said Tues- day members of the business community have "copped out" of the council's activities and olten fail to attend the coun- cil's meetings Harold Buchwald, a Winnipeg lawyer, also said that when Grain movement study by grain council urged business does show up it us ol- ten unprepared factually and has not properly thought out its position. 0 Mr. Buchwald speaking during a panel discussion held by the Better Business Bureau of Canada on the subject of the role of self-regulation by busi- ness in consumer affairs. Mr. Buchwald said the coun- cil, a government advisory agency set up in 1968, ''wants to hear the voice of business." But he said business is not participating in council affairs, often missed some of the coun- cil's four yearly meetings, and serve- up on occa- sions when it did attend. The council was set up to pro- mote co-operation between busi- ness, consumers and govern- ments on consumer affairs and also serve as a government ad- visory body. Host of the five panelists, with the exception of Mr. Buch- wald, indicated they favored self-regulation by business itself rather than legislation, although most qualified their positions by saying they believe the two forms of regulation should exist side by side. Michel Cloutier, a vice-presi- dent of Bombardier Ltd., the snowmobile maker, said "it may be true that business isn't doing what it should most of the time, and the main reason may be that businessmen simply don't have the time to prepare and think out a detailed philoso- phy on the problems involved. H. E. English, a Carleton Uni- versity economics professor and vice-president of the Consumer Association of Canada, a pri- vate organization, said free competition is a "very efficient means of regulation and the most important." He said government regu- lation has not been too under- standing in the past, and gov- ernment agencies tend to end up fulfilling the interests of the private group it is supposed to be regulating. Cedric A. Edson, of the Win- nipeg Better Business Bureau, criticized the large number of consumer groups and govern- ment agencies that have sprung up in recent years. These often lead to harass- ment of the businessman, he said, and tend to scatter con- sumer protection information over a large number of agencies. Mr. Buchwald said self-regu- lation is inadequate because it does not close the door on oper- ators who may choose to cir- cumvent self-regulating bodies. WINNIPEG The Can- ada Grains Council was urged yesterday to initiate a detailed study of the movement of grain from Thunder Bay to St. Lau- rence Seaway elevators, Ralph S. Misener. speaking for the Dominion Marine Associa- tion, told the council's annual meeting attention should be given to improving the existing grain transporation systems be- cause water was not being exploited to its full po- tential He said theie aie sufficient vessels "to han- dle all the gram that can be accommodated 111 the Sf Law- rence under present conditions However, he iid ocean ton- nage is inadequate to the export grain being delivered by lakers without extensive de- lays. "This is the same, sad story 1 as last year Mr. Misener the stocks at Thunder Bay are not "sui-1 ficiently oriented, nor ample, to permit a normal dispatch of' carriers." "With dispatch alone, our, fleet could have handled an ad-' ditional 10 to 20 million bushels, of grain last season." There is scope for increased economics in w ater movement, of gram, he said, suggesting j larger ships, with the enlarge-1 mem of the Canal and j the St Lawrence Seaway only a matter of time, longer navi- gation season- improvements within the existing system and better control of ccsts by the federal government WEEK SAT SHERWIN-WILLIAMS Allied Hardware Fort Maclead, Alto. rath Co-op Ltd.
