He said the proposed legislation would give farmers the op- tion to opt out of the program, but "1 believe that when farmers see the tremendous advantages that the plan will offer to them, they will want to be in it." Details about the operation of the plan would be made public when the proposed legislation is introduced in Parliament Mr Lang said "almost every major farm organization" has endors- ed the plan More money for judges Legisla- tion will be introduced shortly to increase "substantially" the salaries of judges in Canada, Justice Minister Otto Lang said Friday He told the Calgary Bar Association that many promising young lawyers have stayed away from judicial ap- pointments.
