Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta i-riday, November 8, iHt LETHBRIDGE. HERALD 5 Blames rich countries Hao Chung-Shi, China's agriculture minister addressing the food con- ference m Rome, Thursday blamed industrialized countries for provoking the world food crisis He demanded they "shoulder the mam responsibility" in giving food aid to needy nations Ministers tipped on data OTTAWA (CP) The federal government is review- ing a Statistics Canada prac- tice of providing information about economic developments to cabinet ministers before it is made public, House Leader Mitchell Sharp said Thursday these statistics The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles m LETHBRIDGE Mr Sharp, acting prime minister in the absence of Mr Trudeau, said crude in- formation" was provided the cabinet "as soon as possible" so that government policy could be changed if necessary The reports themselves were not delayed There has never been any pressure put on Statistics Can- ada to change any of the fig- Mr Sharp told the House "It has been a practice since the.public requires ministers to be informed of Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said he felt the dis- closures put Statistics Canada in a bad light, adding that it is important for tne agency to be beyond suspicion Mr Sharp said provision of information to cabinet before public release was a practice that started in the 1950s and continued through the years .of Progressive Conservative government But he drew a sharp response from former prime minister John Diefenbaker Radical system of fines proposed OTTAWA (CP) A radical system of fines restitution and compensation which would see prisons become more of a last resort is proposed in the latest working papers of the Law Reform Commission of Canada The commissioners say the system would see the law for the first time give some real consideration to the victim of crime It would introduce fines bas- ed on income in place of un productive imprisonment of non-violent offenders, a system that would make the burden of the penalty equal for rich and poor Where restitution was in- adequate or impossible, such as when the offender is not caught the government would step m with compensation m many from a "reparation chest" into which the revenue from fines was placed The two papers, released Thursday, also introduce the concept of working in place of fines or restitution, but do not spell it out fully The concepts are radical and show the commissioners joining a growing number of experts who are finding prison is not the answer to much non- violent crime and that the vic- tim must have some con- sideration in law In the case of the geared-to-mcome fines, the commission drew heavily from Swedish law REPARATION RARE The commission says it is nonsensical that the convicted offender rarely is made to pay for the damage he has done 'Isn't it surprising that the victim generally gets nothing for his loss9" The commissioners come to this conclusion "If the lawless wilfully break the rules that protect core (social) values they ought to be held accountable and provided with the opportunity to restore the harm done to the victim and the social fabric They say attempting to re- form the prisoner into a productive participant in society is a costly under taking the effectiveness of which remains in doubt So they make suggestions under which the perpetrators of most non-violent crimes once found guilty, would be ordered to make restitution This could cover psy- chological, physical or finan- cial loss and include an apology monetary payment or work order When full restitution was not possible, state compensa- tion would apply in cases of personal injury and property loss although there there would be no compensation for corporations In some cases the act of restitution would be con- sidered punishment enough In others fines would be added JAIL LAST RESORT These would not be of the so- many dollars-or-so-many- variety The commis- sion would virtually end the prison alternative to fines In cases of fines of more than the judge would use day-fines, defined by the commission as a thousandth of the convict s gross annual income Thus a rich man earn ing 000 a year and sentenc- ed to 20 day-fines would pay 000 while a person earning would pav ?100 Arrangements could be Market boards 'mislead' public OTTAWA (CP) Some marketing boards are mis- leading consumers with inflated production-cost figures, a special par- liamentary committee in- vestigating egg marketing was told Thursday Norm Cafik, parliamentary secretary to Consumer Af- fairs Minister Andre Ouellet, said procedures some boards use to determine production costs would never be accepted bv the income tax department The British Columbia egg marketing board adds lOVz per cent of land and building value, eight per cent of operating costs such as cost of feed, depreciation on equip- ment at a rate of 20 per cent and other theoretical costs to production Outside the hearing, Mr Ca- fik said that if "General Motors used that system of accounting they would show a loss "At that rate of calculating production costs, producers could sell eggs at cost and still make a profit If producers show their ac- tual production costs and de- mand a certain return on their investment, consumers would not object he said Bob Rose, Manitoba Egg Marketing Board manager, said outside the committee that his service uses a system similar to B C 's in calculating production costs Earlier, Ed Morgan, manager of the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency (CEMA) from February to August this year denied he was in a conflict-of-interest position during his tenure at the federal agency He reluctantly accepted the job on a six-month contract and endeavored to do the job subject to the guidance of CEMA s directors who are members of provincial marketing boards, he said 'When I became a federal man I spoke as a federal man and when I am a provincial man I speak as a provincial man, he told the committee Mr Morgan, a member of the British Columbia egg marketing board before his appointment to the federal agency now is secretary manager of the B C egg board He had opposed CEMA before his appointment and still expresses doubt it will work effectively Conservative consumer critic James McGrath (St John s East) said he wondered whether there was a conflict of interest when he considered that Mr Morgan opposed B C participation in CEMA and then left it in a mess mado for instalment payment Failure to pay would result in d set of responses including refinancing or a wage gar rushee Prison would be a last resort ordered only when it is shown a judge that the person could pay but wouldn't Even if a person eventually did go to prison the commis- sion looks forward to the day when he could work off restitution and-or fine at acceptable rates of pay there The commission looking to future working paper aimed at keeping some offenders out of court agreement to pay restitution could constitute an out of-court settlement replacing trials SAND gravel ASPHALT [TOLLESTRUP; SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co.
