Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 1t7l TNI UTHMHOOI HWULD M NDP rumblings ring alarm bells By VICTOR MACKIE HeraM Ottawa OfTAWA There are rumblings within the New Democratic Party caucus that are ringing alarm bells within the Liberal caucus. The evidence is mounting that the NDP group is becom- ing disenchanted with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his minority government. The government however is com- fortaWy aware that there is little inclination on the part of its supporters among the op- position to precipitate an elec- tion before Christmas. But after Christmas Only time will tell. The Liberals are worried that the becoming more and mere restless in harness with the may kick over the traces and bolt The future is highly uncertain which makes life in the cabinet difficult and leads to ad hoc policies. Latest evidence of the un- happiness among some NDP'ers over Liberal govern- ment proposals showed up at a recent meeting in Winnipeg Agriculture Ministers Jack Messer of Saskatchewan and Sam Uskiw of both representing NDP provincial met with four federal NDP members of Parliament. They were Alf Cleave Bill Knight Elias Nesdoly and Douglas Rowland They discussed steps to be taken to put an end to the by the federal government in the operation of the Wheat Board. The'group agreed that the government's interference destroyed the autonomy of the The ministers and MP's issued a statement at the close of their talks warning that the government interference must stop or the Wheat Board will be destroyed. The group cited several ex- amples of the interference it was objecting to but finally ze- roed in on the federal govern- ment's feed grains policy This policy has aroused strenuous protests in some quarters. The NDP ministers and members said Ottawa has an- nounced that on Aug. the role of the Canadian Wheat Board in the domestic marketing of feed grains would come to an end. They quoted Otto minister responsible for the Wheat Board as declaring Canadians who wished to do so would be permitted to buy feed grain in the while the board would have the and co- ordination of movement of all grains.' IMPOSSIBLE TASK The group protested that the board is faced with an impos- sible task. Grain moving out of the prairies must move through the elevator system. If everyone is permitted to buy there is no way that the Wheat Board can control the delivery of grain to the elevators and no way the board can control movement they said. The policy affected not only barley and oats but wheat as well because wheat is also a feed they pointed out. The Wheat Board will become just one of many buyers of grains from western they warned. Having no assur- ance of supplies the board will be unable to make the kind of forward sales commitmenU that have accounted for most of in the past 10 The and MP't feared the grain trade will re- vert to the Winnipeg Grain Exchange The four NDP members re- turned to Ottawa warning their colleagues in the NDP caucus that the over-riding issue in the feed grains dis- pute between Mr. Lang and the prairie is the very existence of the Wheat Board. They warned their colleagues from eastern Canada that it took decades of pressure from western a depression and a world war to get the wheat board established as the sole marketing agent for western grains. The NDP'ers from the prairies said they would not remain silent on this issue They will do whatever is necessary to stop Mr Lang and Ottawa from pursuing a course that in their view will destroy the board. it necessary they will work within the caucus to persuade their fellow NDP'ers that the time b coming very toon now. when the party muit withdraw Its support from the ministration has succeeded in getting passed through Parlia- ment certain items of legisla- tion that the NDP'ers want passed.. These items include the for- eign competition family allowances increased old age pensions anu the 'm.pesing an energy tax The NDP members are hopeful that these bills can be all passed by Christmas or shortly after the Christmas recess. Then the heat will start to build up in the NDP caucus. The prairie members are not going to sit back and watch while Mr. Lang and the cabinet interferes with the Wheat Board The NDP Leader David Lewis was ready last summer to challenge the government. He was restrained by the caucus at that time What's up Two ostriches at the Calgary were caught craning their necks to catch a better view of fellow animals and visitors to the zoo. The approach to their analysis two heads are better than one.
