There is an unwritten tradi- tion of freedom of the press in Canada and it is tied directly to freedom of speech. The government does not try In control the press. Canadian governments have always been au'are of the "hands off policy" in dealing with the news me- dia. Mr. Mowers cilcd the Davey report on Mass .Media in point- ing cut a more insidious ero- sion of the free press. j The Davey report slated: ''If Following his speech, Mr. Mowers fielded questions from the audience. In answer to a question about government threats to papers which might publish the FLQ manifesto of October. 1970, Mr. Mowers replied. ''Only the courts could decide who vr.s right if the government brought action. Only a few newspapers would be intimidated by such a threat.

With Eastern United States corn production up more than 300 per cent the last 10 years and still expanding, the U.S. continues to provide a signifi- cant part of the eastern feed grain requirement, even against an eight-cent tariff. Mr. Gilchrist said govern- ment policies at the federal level have treated livestock very much as a "poor relation of the wheat industry.'' He said in good export years, livestock producers arc ignored but as soon as overseas mar- kets get a lilUe rciigh, livestock- producers are exhorted to cat up the surplus grain. He said this on-and-off non- sense means that hog and beef producers never kncv; what their cost or volume of produc- tion is likely to be. They can't gear up to supply any particular market, he He stressed that it was time governments across the nation got together and devised a sys- tem for marketing feed grains which was geared to the needs of Canada's livestock industry rather than to tiie needs of competitors overseas.

That; is the Red Deer Advocate and strntly on the look out for sec- rot documents here in Leth- bridge."
