Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 LETHBRIDGE November 20, 1974 Cheaper ones flowing in from U.S. Farmers losing money on eggs OTTAWA (CP) Quebec farmers are losing money be- cause of large imports of United States eggs, the special Commons committee on egg marketing was told Tuesday. Officials of the Quebec egg marketing agency (FEDCO) and provincial government farm marketing commission said egg producers are losing up to 15 cents a dozen because cheaper eggs are flowing into the province from the U.S. They said the imports, many coming through Ontario where prices were lowered Monday, will continue to depress prices in Quebec and make it impossible for the province to expand production and avoid outside price pressures. Marketing commission president Benoit Lavigne said most Quebec egg producers now are selling eggs below production costs, which average about 62 cents per dozen. Neither the federal govern- ment nor the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency (CEMA) appear ready to stabilize the price and supply problem in the province, he said. Both he and FEDCO presi- dent Ovide Lebel urged the federal government to re- impose strict quotas on im- ported eggs to increase production and guarantee fair prices to producers in Quebec. Quebec currently produces Indian ruling opens door WASHINGTON (CP) The right of a group of Canadian- born Indians to be exempt from United States immigra- tion laws, upheld last summer by a judge in Maine, will not be contested by the U.S. justice department. The legal division of the de- partment's immigration ser- vice said Tuesday the depart- ment has decided not to appeal the ruling by Federal District Judge Edward Gignoux of Bangor, Me., that 'eight Canadian-born native In- dians are free from regulations requiring foreigners in the U.S. to regis- ter and obtain visas. Although an immigration service lawyer said the ruling applies only to those Indians who filed suit, it is expected to serve as a valuable precedent to thousands of Indians born in Canada and working in the United States. The decision, if expanded to other Canadian Indians, would apply only to those with half or more of Indian blood, justice department lawyers have said. The suit was brought by An- drew Akins and six other In- dians now living in Maine and by Loomis Sappier of Perth Andover, N.B. All were born in Canada and are members of the Micmac, Maliseet, Penob- scot or Passamaquoddy tribes. CAN PASS FREELY They argued that under the 1794 Jay Treaty of the U.S., as well as the U.S. Immigration Act of 1928, members of North American tribes have the right to pass freely over the border. Judge Gignoux agreed, say- ing the 1928 act was intended "to preserve the aboriginal right of American Indians to move freely throughout the Only 3750 Down Newly completed spacious bi-level two bed- room apartment unit, featuring private entrance and yard area, balcony, colored appliances, shag carpet throughout.

For Particulars Phone 328-5303 territories originally occupied by them on either side of the United States and Canadian border and, thus, to exempt Canadian-born Indians from all immigration restrictions imposed on aliens." However, the judge denied their request that Indians also be exempt from customs duty on goods they import. He said jurisdiction in such questions rests with the U.S. Customs court. David Crosby, a lawyer who worked with the Indians on the case, said at the time that Judge Gignoux's decision means Canadian-born Indians can't be deported as aliens and can't be discriminated against as aliens when they apply for jobs in the United States. The justice department originally was given until Aug. 23 to appeal. Department lawyers obtain- ed several postponements of the appeal deadline while senior justice officials weigh- ed the merits of trying to overturn Judge Gignoux's decision. The final decision, reached this week, was not to appeal. RECORD TRAFFIC Britain's ports handled a record 382 million tons of traf- fic last year to achieve the highest annual increase in 10 vears. about 55 per cent of the eggs it consumes, well below produc- tion quotas set by CEMA. Nei- ther official could estimate the number of imported eggs coming from the U.S., but said total imports so far this year reached dozen. Mr. Lavigne said U.S. eggs find their way into Quebec through Ontario, where the egg marketing agency responded Monday to FEDCO price cuts and lowered producer prices by four cents to 58 cents a dozen for grade-A large eggs. Both officials said the cuts were opening a new price war between Ontario and Quebec. Mr. Lavigne told Jack Murta he did not know how long the feud would con- tinue. Both provinces must confer "and decide who is respecting what and who is not respecting what." He said CEMA appears more interested in "getting out from under" its financial problems and resolving the controversy surrounding the destruction of 28 million sur- plus eggs than in establishing orderly marketing. Hurl body from window In Washington, the question of Canadian egg shipments is under investigation but it is the possible dumping of the Canadian product onto the U.S. market that the U.S. treasury department is look- ing into. Last year, Canada exported million worth of eggs to the U.S. and charges were made that the eggs were being sold in the U.S. at prices below those prevailing in Canada. David Macdonald, assistant treasury secretary, said when the investigation was an- nounced that preliminary checks indicated "the prices of the merchandise sold for exportation to the U.S. are less than the home-market prices." Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz said at the time that "Canada ships three times the amount of eggs to us that we do to them."

Saskatchewan power project Montana fears dispelled Socred support sought VANCOUVER (CP) Members of the mining in- dustry are being asked to give the British Columbia Social Credit Party financial help. Austin Taylor, who describes himself as an unof- ficial party worker, sent a form letter to people listed in the British Columbia Yukon Chamber of Mines directory. Mr. Taylor refused Tuesday to say how many appeals he sent or how many returns he received. Party president Grace McCarthy said Tuesday she was not acquainted with the details of fund raising ac- tivities. The letter says financial support for Social Credit leader Bill Bennett "must emanate from the grass roots." "Therefore it is important that we rely on individuals, not corporations or special interest groups, to provide funds for Bill's leadership and the party." Strip-mining bill opposed REGINA (CP) Although environmental studies have yet to be completed, Saskatchewan officials say U.S. residents have nothing to fear from a power plant and reservoir planned for two miles north of the Montana border. Some officials in the U.S. State Department in Washington are reported to be apprehensive about the pro- ject's possible effect on air and water quality. The project, on which work will start next year if it draws the expected favorable report from a Saskatchewan govern- ment inquiry, involves a acre reservoir for cooling purposes and a million coal burning power plant and strip mining operation. The plant would consume seven million tons a year at its full megawatt poten- tial. The reservoir would be produced by a dam on the East Poplar River, which flows through the sparsely populated, semi arid region into Montana cattle country, eventually joining the Missouri. Leo Kristjanson, chairman of the inquiry, said in an inter- view Tuesday studies are still under way on the effects the project might have but as far as Montana is concerned, "the effect is almost zero, some decrease in the flows of the East Poplar River." BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) The Northern Plains Resource Council has presented Rep. John Melcher with a silver platter to in- dicate the group's opposition to sections of a federal strip mining bill. The platter, intended for fellow members of the Senate House committee attempting to work out differences in versions of the bill, bore the inscription, "Will Congress give the West away on a silver The council has backed ef- forts by Melcher to retain the rights of landowners who have federally owned coal under their land. 24th ANNUAL GREAT SAVINGS ON 9" BLACK WHITE PORTABLE TV CLEARTHEDECKS 19" BLACK WHITE PORTABLE TV CLEARTHEDECKS 20" BLACK WHITE PORTABLE TV CLEARTHEDECKS 14" PORTABLE I V CLEAR THE DECKS 20" PORTABLE COLOR TVAutomalic CLEAR THE DECKS. 20" CLEAR THE DECKS. 26" LOW-BOY TW In walnul finish.
