Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 16, 1974 Father Hogan, MP, flays food talk OTTAWA (CP) If words were food for the body as well as food for thought, Friday's debate in the Commons would Payments trouble students CALGARY (CP) Native students attending the Univer- sity of Calgary charged Fri- day the federal government is delaying payments to students and forcing many of them into precarious financial positions. Bob Rover, spokesman for about 30 Indian and Metis students who demonstrated at the Indian affairs office here, said native students have fac- ed delays in receiving sub- sistence cheques for many months. Mr. Rover said the payments are inadequate and many students have found it difficult to remain in univer- sity A single native student receives S240 per month under the program and slightly more if he has dependents, said Mr. Royer. have filled many an empty belly. Andy Hogan, the outspoken Nova Scotia priest who spon- sored the debate on a New Democratic Pary motion cen- suring the government for failure to provide leadership in the world food crisis, said the nearly five hours of talk was full of "platitudinous remarks." He said no-one outside his from several Progressive Conser- any solutions to the world food shortage. Father Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond) said the United Nations warned in 1963 that international food supply would become one-of the most serious problems ever faced by mankind. The Trudeau government, at the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization's Rome conference, has com- mitted itself to one million bushels of wheat aid annually for the next three amount Father Hogan said does not compare favorably with the 1.3 million bushels it contributed in 1970. "It may not be possible this year, but if the government had listened to the UN, they would have been in a position to do something today." In his speech opening debate on his motion, the 51-year-old priest who earned a reputa- tion as a hard-nosed fighter for miners' rights in Nova Scotia, accused Canadians in general of being apathetic. Father Hogan, who has master's degrees in sociology and economics, said Canada needs a new agricultural policy enabling it to give more food aid. External Affairs Minister MacEachen rejected opposi- tion criticism, saying Canada "has been very active and has participated in all of the im- portant preparatory conferences" leading up to the Rome meeting.
