Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday. October 11, LETHBRIDQE HERALD -27 MP fears trade war with U.S. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES MEDICINE HAT (CP) Medicine Hat Conservative MP JBert Hargrave says he fears A trade war may develop between Canada and the BERT HARGRAVE United States if the retaliation against Canadian agricultural import quotas goes into effect. The U.S. proposed Thursday that restrictions be put on cat- tle and meat imports from 'Canada in return for meat im- port quotas imposed earlier this year by the Canadian government. The proposal calls for a public hearing Oct. 25 to consider the plan. Mr. Hargrave said the United States 1962 Trade Ex- pansion Act allows their government to retaliate if another government. places "unjustified" trade restric- tions on the U.S. "The act allows for 90 days for comment on the proposed Mr. Hargrave said. "L it they have cut that period to 15 days." "Evidently they mean business." The effect of an embargo or quota system on Canadian cat- tle would have little im- mediate effect, but "there is no way Canada can win a trade war with the U.S" The ultimate effect of quotas or an outright embargo would be a glutting of the Canadian market, and a depression of Canadian cattle prices, he said. Mr. Hargrave said an increased calf population in Canada, combined with a slackening demand, meant that many cattle would be wintered. But it would be "economically disastrous" for ranchers to feed cattle on purchased grains. "If we can't absorb them in Canada, the only place for them to go is to the U.S." Mr. Hargrave said Us party is urging the government to get back to the discussion table to prevent a trade war from starting.

David MacDonald (Egmont) said a September newsletter from Gen. J. A. Dextraze, chief, of defence staff, constituted a violation of the rights and privileges of members of Parliament. Other opposition members applauded and shouted when the member asked Defence Minister James Richardson about the newsletter. Mr. Richardson said he knew nothing of it but would check and report back to the Commons today. He added he had found no difficulty in the past supporting the general in all he had done Mr. MacDonald said he was Mr. Richardson did not know of the newsletter be- cause the general had also in- structed, troops not to write to the minister. The passage in question is contained in one of 'the periodic newsletters from the general to forces members. The general, referring to grievance procedures, assured his men that each case is investigated and he, personnally, decides on each case. "This duty takes me several hours each week and I con- sider it one of my most impor- tant responsibilities "If you feel you have a grievance you should submit it to your CO (commanding of- ficer) you should not write to your MP or to the minister of national defence. "In any case, they have no alternative but to refer such letters to the department for investigation and reply. "The fact that a grievance 'is routed via tfn MP does not and cannot nave any bearing on the final outcome of .the case. "If it were otherwise, the integrity not only of the armed forces but also of our members of Parliament would be called into question. White Pages can show you a thing or two, too! "In fact, the only significant effect is that when a case is decided in favor of the in- dividual as a result of a tetter to an MP rather 4han a redress of arm- ed forces look foolish." The general said he recently considered such a case and "the MP concerned must now have a lower opinion of the armed forces." v He said the decision would nave been the same if the MP had not been involved. Auto safety measures pushed EDMONTON The Alberta Safety Council plans to seek reintroduction of compulsory motor vehicle inspection, legislation to enforce the wearing of seat belts, and the lowering of speed limits, on Alberta highways as ways of reducing traffic fatalities in the province. Safety Council officials said yesterday that 67 people were killed on provincial highways during July and the-.toll in August reached 75. R. P. Lawrence, council general manager, said the last time there was -compulsory motor vehicle inspection, in 1969, it failed because of a lack of supervision of inspection stations. experience in Vancouver .shows motorists accept government owned and operated stations more readily, he said. The council said it would like to see enforcement of seat belt regulations, under which police would check motorists when they are stopped for other infractions. Mr. Lawrence said that in Australia, where there is a fine for not wearing seat belts, there has been a 20-per cent drop hi traffic fatalities. Election ruled void WINNIPEG (CP) The election of Harvey Patterson of the New Democratic Party to the legislature in the June, 1973, provincial electon was declared void Thursday by the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench. Mr. Justice James E. Wilson and Mr. Justice A. C. Hamilton ruled that the elec- tion in the Winnipeg riding of Crescentwood was fall of irregularities and mistakes. Mr. Patterson was declared the winner by one vote over Progressive Conservative L. 0. Pollard after an electoral dispute and a decision in the Manitoba Court of Appeal last fall.
