One of them. Jack Crowfoot) said point blank that if the Canadian taxpayer was to get a fair return for his dollar the department should be pouring money into British Columbia. it is, British Columbia gets only a small percentage of industrial development Incentive grants. The other MP, Don kowskl, said It appeared to him that many grants were handed out to industries to expand in one location only to see a segment of the industry fold In another location. This didn't help cut unemployment at all, ha contended. Mr. Marchand, who has come under severe criticism from some Opposition MPs for thn way millions nf dollars are hanc'ed out under the DREE program, denied the contentions. Ontario New Democratic Party MP Ed Broadbent has already told the standing parliamentary committee on regional development that over almost a wo year period British Columbia's share of the grants ranged from 0.5 per cent to three per cent. Mr. Homer couldn't understand this at all-Mr. Mazan kowskl Vegrcville) said from recent actions of the minister's department it appeared as businessmen were encouraged to let their operations get into a rundown shape so as to be eligible for grants. He also wanted to know whether the department tried to ESSCSS the impact a new operation, financed partially by industrial incentive grants, would have on similar established companies in other parts of the counlrv. The Alberta MP said he recalled that money was given to one packing plant to establish ID Lethbriclge, Alia. The result was that two packing plants in Calgary folded. Mr. Marchand said he understood the two plants in Calgary would have closed in any case. The minister said obviously his department tried to assess (he impact a new plant would have elsewhere. It was common sense that money wouldn't ba given to a company to build one plant if the end result was thai another plant would have to close down, throwing men out of jobs. "As a taxpayer I would like to think that the government gets the best value for my dollar. In doing that do you not think that the government should be looking at the area which has tha greatest natural potential development. Just looking at tha tables that were distributed, obviously, British Columbia has the greatest natural potential But obviously your departmenl has not been aware of it. You are not spending any monei there at Mr. Homer told Ihe minister. Mr. Marchand said that was an old argument. He said British Columbia is In a much better economic position than Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland. "Who's judging it to be in 3 much better shff back Mr. Horncr. "We judge that in terms of income employment. There are some objective criteria. You know that people are much richer in B.C. than in answered Mr. Marchand. Mr. -Homer said it seemed to him thai the department was feared to pouring money into re-g i o n E where unemployment v.as. ralher than into areas with the greatest growth potential. "In mnny cases the unemployed are unemployed in a region because of the uneconomic factors ,n lhat region. Grants. I think, in the 'ong run would be more r W.

It was Indicated at the meeting that Ihe plan will now be registered so that the development may proceed the property is owned by Mr. Long.

Fred Peacock. Alberta's minister of Industry and tourism, said Wednesday. He told a Canadian transport commission hearing into freight rates that traditional transportation policies force the West to have ils raw materials processed in the East. Current freight rale structures encouraged economic growth in a few metropolitan areas the remainder of the West will be an economic wasteland characterized by the absence of opportunity." The growth of the rapesecd-processing industry in the West could help counter this trend. Mr. Peacock said that initially, the West lacked people, capital and technical knowledge and ils only capability was the production of raw materials. In that E'.lurMca, low freight rates for moving raw materials out of (be West were of b c n e f i t of both West and East.
