Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDOE HEAALD-Thuradiy, October No carte blanche EDMONTON (CP Social Credit house leader Bob Clark said today the oil sands tran- sportation corridor recently announced by Premier Peter Lougheed should not be done by carte blanche approval Although basically in favor of the corridor, Mr Clark told a news conference several pieces of provincial legisla- tion would have to be amend- ed to go ahead with the development "The opposition won't accept the government walk- ing all over existing legisla- tion in favor of one general act supplanting all he said Mr. Clark said he had "shivering suspicion" the government would take the same route as it did with the Northeast Alberts Com- mission, creatsu last spring by Bill 55, that, legislation overruled a number of provin- cial acts. The house leader said he would like the government to introduce appropriate legisla- tion and amendments this fall, and hold them over -inti! next spring to allow for maximum public discussion. Mr Clark said he was dis- turbed that the role of the legislature was not mentioned in the transportation corridor studies The government must not develop -he corridor by bypassing the provincial he said DR. GARY BOWIE Vor---" fpUBLIC SCHOOL TRUSTEE by Civic Inflation poses disaster EDMONTON (CP) Inflation poses every possibility for disaster for Canada, a disaster which would be world wide and come without war- ning, A. J. E. Child, president of Burns Foods Ltd., says. "Canada can protect itself, and come through relatively undamaged, if we are willing to undertake sensible and courageous Mr. Child said in a speech to a Canadian Restaurant Association meeting, but the measures have to be initiated now. Mr. Child said North America has had inflation on a modest scale ever since the Second World War. It was no problem as long as income increases exceeded price increases. Wages and salaries had risen by several hundred per cent since 1947 but prices generally had been held down by increased productivity and supply. New technology and economies of scale had kept down the prices of such things as appliances, and petroleum products and large grain harvests had been responsi- ble for low meat prices. But normal anti inflation factors no longer appeared to be effective. Wage and salary increases were having an abnormal effect on costs. In secondary industry, direct labor costs and indirect or hidden labor cost increases in the form of municipal charges, supplies, materials and services were pushing up prices. In agriculture, producers of livestock for the first time were claiming that they were being seriously hurt by cost increases other than the cost of feed grains. Coupled with cost increases were shortages of some major products, such as grains, oilseeds, sugar, plastics and paper. The prices of many foods and other products had risen accordingly. Mr. Child said the cost increases could almost all be traced back to increases in wage rates. NO RELIEF IN SIGHT There was not much relief in sight for 1975 so far as supply shortages were concerned and there appeared to be no end to the other great inflationary tor the rise in wage rates. This posed two dangers. One was that technology and mass production could no longer match the rise hi wage rates and keep costs down The other was that large inequalities in income were appearing Workers who belonged to strong un- ions were getting the highest percen- tage increase.

OVER INVOICE SALE t By MICHAEL LAVOIE OTTAWA (CP) A national conference on world famine called on the federal government Wednesday to take bold steps to increase food production for under- developed countries without endangering the prosperity of Canadian farmers. Delegates to the Canadian conference on the world food crisis also' appealed to Cana- dians to eat cheaper foods in an attempt to free more high- protein cereals to other countries. The two-day conference ended here Wednesday night with a package of about 20 recommended guides for the Canadian delegation at the World Food Conference in Rome Nov. 5-16. Some 240 delegates from agriculture, industry, labor and assorted non-government relief and social agencies defended rising farm incomes in Canada. They declared that Canadian fanners will not produce the vast new quan- tities of wheat and other es- sential protein-rich foods for starving nations of Asia, Africa and Latin America un- less they are guaranteed good prices and stable markets. The delegates came down hard on so-called "agri-busi- the big multinational corporations that sell fer- tilizers, pesticides, farm equipment and other materials to developing countries. The conference condemned agri-business for its relentless pursuit of profit in developing countries and passed a resolu- tion that all future technical and economic assistance offered by such companies should be screened by representatives of govern- ment, consumers and fanners The conference, sponsored Headquarters at Calgary? CALGARY (CP) Liberal senator Earl Hastings of Alberta says the headquarters of Petro Canada should be located hi Calgary. He said in a telephone irrter- view from Ottawa that Calgary is the logical location for proposed crown cor- poration as the Canadian oil industry is based here. f Prime Minister Trudeau, in a move to have some input from Alberta in the absence of elected representation, recently appointed Sen. Hastings as co ordmator of federal Liberal activities for Alberta by the Canadian Council for International Co-operation, the Canadian Hunger Founda- tion and the United Nations Association, voted to seek a public meeting with members of the government delegation to the Rome food conference to present their resolutions. The conference also decided to urge the government to in- clude representatives of non- government agencies, such as the Hunger Foundation, in the Rome delegation. Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan has indicated that Canadian strategy at the Rome meeting will be centred on proposals to increase Cana- dian food production while protecting the incomes of the country's farmers. Resolutions approved at the Ottawa conference took the same approach.
