Driva 328-8161 "The Pioneer and Leading Rclall Shop in Lclhbridgc" FINEST QUALITY PASTRY AND BAKERY PRODUCTS Rapeseed freight rates investigated An Investigation by tire Ca- nadian Transport Commission into railway freight rates for rapcsccd, rapesoed oil and meal has heen granted, and could help bring Western Ca- nadian rapesced crushers to a position of fair competition with crushers in Eastern Canada. Hugh II. Michael, president of Western Canadian Seed Pro- cessors Ltd. in Lelhbridgc, said the investigation will revolve around application of the Crowsr.est rates structure to the shipment of gram and grain products by rail, and may determine the validity of includ- ing rapeseed oil and rapesced meal under the jurisdiction of the government-set rail rates. The Crowsnest rates are set for shipment of. grain and grain products from the Prairies to Thunder Bay In the east and Vancouver in the wesi. Rapeseed was ruled a grain product in 1963 but to date only rapeseed and rapeseed meal to Die east and only rapesced to the west are under the juris- diction of the Crowsnest rates. Mr. Michael said WCSP, to- gether with the otbsr three Western Canadian crushers, The Saskatchewan Wheat Pool fftfrojiollwri Bldg. 32MW5 of Saskatoon, Agra Industries of Nipawin, Sask., and Co-op Vegetable Oils of Altona, Man., sought the investigation by the CTC to get rapeseed meal and rapeseed oil under the jurisdic- tion of the Crowsnest rates. Mr. Michael sale! under pres- ent shipping rates it is more cconoiiiical to take oil and meal in the form of rapeseed seed to Eastern Canada for crushing than to ship it in the processed form. "The Crowsnest' rates struc- ture discriminates against the Western oil crusher because of the difference in he said. "This could lead to the con- centration of the oil seed crush- ing industry in Eastern Can- ada, because Eastern crushers can get raw rapeseed from Western Canada, process it and sell it more cheaply that West- ern firms. "We want to market more oil and meal In Eastern Can- ada in the future, but because of the unfair competition, we will be forced to find other markets." In making the decision to hold a hearing, the date of which will be decided Dec. the CTC used its first applica- tion of the National Transpor- tation Act that became law in The commission ruled that special freight rates for trans- port of these goods could be against the public interest, and tills was sufficient grounds for an appeal.
