Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, May 36, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD ft New hypermarkets may revolutionize food business TORONTO (CP) An exten- sion of the supermarket idea is expected to revolutionize the food retailing business, and pos- sibly general merchandising, in Canada, some analysts say. The first so-called "super" supermarket, or hypermarket, will be opened in Laval, Que., this fall by Oshawa Group Ltd. It is a merchandising concept that has been successful in Eu- rope. Mead and Co., a Toronto in- vestment house, says the idea is totally consumer oriented and emphasizes operating-cost re- duction, lower retail price, shopping convenience and speed. Food and general mer- chandise will be shipped direct from the manufacturer, pre- ticketed and in containers de- lAUNDE NHERE!

In an analysis of Oshawa Group and food retailing gener- ally, Mead and Co. says it be- lieves the hypermarket concept will receive consumer accept- ance "and grow to become a major force in the Canadian merchandising industry.' The Laval hypermarket will be many times the size or the average supermarket. About square feet will be selling space, almost three-quarters of it devoted to general merchan- dise and the rest to food. TREND CONTINUES In a big way, it will continue the treed for supermarkets to handle non-feed itemi-. In an investment letter on food distribution, Babsons Re- ports of Toronto also says "di- versification into non-food lines seems to be the only effective way of improving margins and earnings." Oshawa Group is in the wholesale and retail distribution of food through IGA and other j outlets, including Food City and Much More. It has interests in discount department stores, drug retailing, catalogue show- room retailing, institutional food, fast food outlets and coin laundries. Mead and Co. says it is un- likely that Canadian Food re- tailing will recover completely from the move "by major in- dustry participants to full-scale discount merchandising which precipitated the food price war late in 1970 and in 1971.' It says the industry's pricing structure has undergone a more or less permanent change. A re- turn to levels of profitability in the mid-1980s will probably not occur under present operating methods in the near future. MAY FORCE MOVES Irish mystic The ancient crystal-ball gazer himself, King Clancy, brought out his furban, put a hex on a used soccer ball, thought carefully and then predicted sunny skies for an exhibition scccer match between the Metros and Finn Harps from Ireland. Clancy will no doubt be on hand at Toronto's Varsity Stadium, now that the hockey season is over. There appears to be "a state of relative equilibrium" in th price competition of majo chain stores, and it would seem reasonable to assume many the other stores "will be forcec into hypermarket develop meht.' Mead and Co. says highe food prices and establishmen of a food prices review boar do not necessarily mean feder al price controls. While there is some concern that food retailing "may be- come subject to some form o political the in vestment firm contends it i "unlikely that food board: make for excellent price con trols."

Next month, the Americans plan to inaugurate their com- mercial use of Canada's Anik-2 back-up satellite with a little more of a Madison Avenue flair: a live color television broadcast of the Jerry Quarry- Ernie Shavers heavyweight box- ing match from New York's Madison Square Gardens will be relayed via Anik-2 to Ana- heim, Calif. In California, conventioners at the annual meeting of the National Cable Television Asso- ciation and some local cable television system viewers will be given a first-hand look at; one of the myriad possible uses j of satellite communications sys-! terns being touted by a number of American users Anik-2. The inaugural satellite hook- up, scheduled for June 18, is being arranged for Tele- PrompTer Corporation, a U.S. cable television concern, by the American Satellite Corporation, Amersat. Amersat in turn has made ar- rangements with Telesat Can- ada, operator of Anik-2, for use of the satellite, which last Thursday arrived in its final parking spot over Medicine Hat, Alta. The Amersat arrangement is subject to Canadian and U.S. federal approval, but that is ex- pected within a week, according io Amersat and Telesat offi- cials. TelePrompTer is also trying ;o arrange another broadcast on June 18 from iaps even live from the White Anaheim. Both endeavors are intended to demonstrate how satellites could relay national programs on the east or west coast to cable television systems :hroughout the are such systems already. The June 18 demonstration use U.S. for using Anik-2 are ex- pected to be completed late this summer or early this with regular commercial service m the U.S. starting early this fall. To date, two U.S. consortia have signed agreements with Telesat to use Anik-2 channels to provide communications service between points in the U.S., until a U.S.-built satellite communications system is com- pleted. The obvious contrast between the traditional Canadian in- auguration of its Anik-1 service and the more boistrous and in- novative American inauguration of Anik-2 service exemplifies a much broader and deeper dif- ference in approach to use of such satellite systems domes- ticallv. By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA One bon. mem- ber: "Shame! Shame" In the Houses of Commons of both Canada and Britain that particular taunt is probably the most used and most popular word in the heckling vocabu- lary. The days when it isn't used by a Member of Parlia- ment on either one side of the Commons or the per- haps by members on both side undoubtedly be counted on one hand. However, while the cry of may be the bast known heckling comment it's usually used only mem- bers haven't time to think of a better cutting remark. Some MPs, such as Progressive Con- servatives Gerald Baldwin (Peaca Kiver, Alta.) Tom Bell (St. John-Lancaster, N.B.) George Hees (Prince Edward Hastings, Ont.) and scrappy Liberal Joe Guay (St. Boniface, have gained reputations for their abilities to throw cut- ting comments one after the ether. Mr. Guay, in particular, is the one MP who can always an- noy Conservative members. In February, he infuriated Nova Scotia MP Mike Forrestall so much that the Maritime Con- servative suggested that Mr. Guay out "insurance against fattened lips and blood- ied Not to be outdone, the next day Mr. Guay walked into the Commons with his face a mass of sticking plasters and bandages. As usual, The Mani- toba MP got the last laugh. While in bitter and emotional moments heckling, comments and charges can become rather vicious, there are certain rules when he uttered a four-letter obsenity in the Commons a year or two ago, even though he later claimed he said only "fuddle duddle.1' Mr. Baldwin, the Con- servative House leader, is allowed to shout across the Commons floor about the "in- cestuous" relationship between governing Parliamentary con- duct. Prime Minister Pierre El- liott Trudeau discovered that the minority Liberals and the New Democrats, but references to a member being even slightly drunk are strictly for- if the accusation is true. About a year-and-a-half ago, Mr. Trudeau himself was or- dered by Speaker Lucien La- moureux to apologize to teetota- ler Robert Muir (PC Cape Brc- ton-The Sydneys) after the prime minister had suggested Mr. Muir gained his heckling abilities from having too much to drink. In fact, the Commons views such slurs so gravely that Mr. Lamoureux wasn't satisfiad at the prime minister's apology and ordered him to repeat it more firmly. Earlier this year, Frank How- ard (NDP Skeena, B.C.) was also ordered to apologize for a drinking remark he made to Pat Nowlan (PC Armapolis Val- ley.) Mr. Nowlan, who by no means can be said to have a thin skin, told the Commons he wasn't concerned about getting an apology but Mr. Lamoureux ordered the socialist MP to apologize just the same. It's also against the rule book to suggest that a member has "knowingly" misled the House. A member can suggest another MP misled the House in error, but never knowingly poli- ticians never lie or cheat! A week or so ago Marcel Lambert, himself a former Speaker in the Commons, sug- gested that Mr. Tructeau had "deliberately" misled the House. Mr. Lamou- reux ordered him to withdraw the remark, which Mr. Lambert did although he tagged on the comment that Mr. Trudeau was at least "ignorant of the MEALS ON WHEELS AT NOMINAL COST For Further Information Phone 327-7990 R.W.Y.
