Western Canadian Seed Pro- cessors Ltd. of Lcthbridgc made this request, and in lieu of it. asked for an increase in the present quota to ensure ad- equate raw supplies. Both re- quests were denied. In a letter lo Ihc wheat board, WCSP stated that rape- seed moves directly inlo it's plant by Imck from Ihe farm. It doesn't use Ihc rail system which could tie up cars needed for the export of other grains. Also, the rapesecd doesn't oc- cupy any of the vital western export grain handling system, including elevators. Western Canadian contends that the quota system is not valid for domestic crushers. It is not needed to prolcct Ihe railway and elevaior systems, both of which are controlled by the wheat board. Boh Simmons, vice-president of WCSP in charge ol markcl- j ages, even though the cash re- j turn per acre is not, as foi1 Uic cereal said Mr. Simmons. Apparently the nuo'a system is putting some wrinkles into Lhe expansion of Western Can- adian's contracted acreages. "Being taken lo court or even a threat of hoinp taken to courl jis very distasteful lo said. "Rather (han face this j lem every year, they are swit- ching hack Lo wheat and barley." Since the contention of WCSP is that quotas restrict the amount of raw product neces sary for plant operation, offi- cial's feel rapcseed crushing plants arc being discriminated against.
