Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tuesday, May 16, 19X2 THE LETHBSIDCE HERALD 13 Federal govL pays for migratory bird damage (f'cprintcd from Hie Kroe Press Wocklv) The federal government is, for tlie first time, accepting re- sponsibility for damage done to farm crops by migratory birds, federal Knvironment Minis t e r Jack Oavis said in "Winnipeg. Mr. Davis said at a news con- ference the proposal now being put lief ore the governments of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta is that the fedroal gov- ernment pay for half the dam- tage done to crops, while the provinces will administer the program. He said the program will like- ly cost the federal government between million and mil- lion a year, but that during the worst on record, Saskatch- ewan alone had recorded million worth of damage. Mr. Davis made the an- nouncement at a press confer- ence after meeting Acting En- vironmental Management Min- ister Leonard Evans of Mani- toba and Resources Minister Eiling Kramer Saskatche- wan. Alherta was not repre- sent ed. Mr. Kramer said the an- nouncement represents a "giant Stride" in conservationism. "For U montlis of the year we're conservationists, and then When harvest starts, we issue permits for the slaughter of thousands of immature he said. The provincial government have had programs of planting "lure crops" to keep the mi- grating ducks and geese away from farmers' fields as much as possible, but there has not yet been any program of direct financial compensation to farm- ers. Mr. Kramer said he has al- ways taken the position that tho migrating birds are the Queen's ducks and geese, and that the Queen's representatives tho federal government should be responsible for any damage they cause. Such has not al- ways been the case, he said. The birds, many of which breed as far north as the North- west Territories, migrate an- nually as far south as the Gulf of Mexico. Mr. Davis Indicated the fed- eral government wants to con- tinue the negotiations at the in- ternational level, since the ducks hunted in the United States and in Mexico will have been fattened at the expense of the Canadian taxpayer. He suggested that the feed- Ing of ducks for hunting pur- poses could also be conlidered as a way of getting rid of some of Canada's surplus grain if an international agreement, could be worked out, since duck hunt- Ing is a multi-million dollar business. Details of the new compen- sation program will be worked out by a federal provincial committee consisting of a fed- eral government representative and the deputy ministers from the three Prairie provinces, said Mr. Evans.
