Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Genstar case "blown out of all proportion9 ELDON WOOLLIAMS OTTAWA (CP) A Con- servative MP has gone over- board by charging that 9 mul- tinational corporation has a near monopoly in its field in Canada, a spokesman for the corporation said Tuesday Tom Denton of Winnipeg, executive vice-president of BACM Industries Ltd., said in a telephone interview that Eldon Woolhams (Calgary North) had overstated the case when he raised it in the Commons Monday He had asked Urban Affairs Minister Barnett Danson whether the government was investigating the affairs of BACM's parent, Genstar Ltd., a public company whose ma- jor shareholders are in Belgium and Britain. Mr Woolliams charged out- side the House that Genstar is violating the Combines Act, which prohibits any one firm from "unduly affecting" busi- ness in any given field. Mr. Danson replied that he had asked for a copy of a re- port on Genstar prepared for Calgary city council for Outside the House, Mr. Woolliams charged that Gen- star is violating the Combines Act because it controls a sub- stantial portion of the Calgary housing and property develop- ment market. The legislation prohibits any one company from "unduly affecting" business in any given field Mr. Denton, however, said Genstar, through BACM, con- trols only acres out of left for residential development in eight per cent. Also, he said, of 125 square miles Calgary is considering annexing and which is the sub- ject of a plebiscite later this year, BACM owns only 3.5 square miles. "The thing has been blown out of all proportion by Mr. Woolliams." The issue came to a head last week when Calgary city council, against the advice of lawyers, released the report on the activities of Genstar and its subsidiaries in the southern Alberta city and sub- urbs. The report says Genstar is the parent company for a number of Calgary firms, most if not all in the housing and construction business. While emphasizing its findings were inconclusive, the law -firm that prepared the report said Genstar dominates the market in virtually all the in- dustries in which it is in- volved. Mr. Denton said today the report makes Genstar appear "mysterious and con- spiratorial and nothing could be further from the truth." He said the company held discussions with Calgary about two years ago and in- vited the city to ask any questions it wanted. "Nobody's hiding anything here." BACM, in a statement re- leased in Calgary Monday, said the company's reputation has been "irreparably harmed" by the release of the report, which, it stressed, was, misleading. Mr. Denton said today it was "loaded with inac- curacies, distortions and un- substantiated allegations." Body found in truck at Calgary CALGARY (CP) The body of Ralph Chitwood, 59, of Airdrie, was found Tuesday on the northern outskirts of Calgary. RCMP say the body was dis- covered in his farm truck on a rural road about 2Vz miles east of Highway 2. A police spokesman said his death was believed to have resulted from natural causes. An autopsy has been ordered.

Milk bank spokesman Shelley Clark said the addition of a Kimberley infant and a 13 month old Vancouver girl since mid September had depleted the supply to about ounces. That is sufficient only for the next eight days as the four children require a total average of 125 ounces daily, she said. The milk bank has 400 women on its donors' list, Mrs Clark said, but only about one in 10 can be counted on to provide regular supplies.
