Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta i nc t-c i npmuuc ucioovr 10, Re-inspection system hits Alberta meat EDMONTON iC P Reinspection of export meat products is having a depiesbive effect on Alberta pork prices, the Alberta Hog Ksoducers Marketing Board said yesterday consider the present meat inspection service for export to 'he United States completely inadequate and a obstacle for move- ment of pork and pork products from Western Canada to U S markets. Tony Bukieda hog board chairman, said in a prepared statement vVhat is required. Mr Bukieda is that a United States department of agiiculture inspector be located at Calgary and Ed- monton to clear exports at the point of origin This would reduce transpor- ration cost, reduce the time involved in getting the product to its destination do away with handling labor and storage at the U S point of in- spection which tends to lower product quality, allow delivery of the product on schedule and avoid putting I" S buyers in a position of be- ing short of stock in any given v. eek HESTRICTTVE DEVICE Mr Bukieda said the reinspection of imported meats' has been used as a restrictive device to inhibit the flov, of products between 'he U S and Canada and LiSiiVily results in higher orices to the consumer in both countries Reinspection occurred on products that had. a few hours earlier passed nealth inspec- i on in the country or origin at the time of shipment Mr Bukieda said ,eciporocal acceptance of meat certificates would appear reasonable since Cana- dian and U S health standards are similar but political pressure appears to be preventing this. The major meat item in- volved was pork Mr. Bukieda said there are no inspection facilities at the ports of entry into the U.S. from Western Canada Canadian meat products were examined at U S. plants, a procedure that "is a financial disadvantage to the Canadian exporters because of the possible return trucking of any rejected product and because of the charge by the U S plant for use of facilities." COMPANY BALKS Figol Distributors Ltd of Edmonton, a major tran- sporter of meat products to the western U S., announced yesterday that starting Nov. 15 it will no longer assume the cost of U.S department of agriculture import meat m- speiction charges. A company spokesman said that in the past the meat reinspection was provided as a service to the shipper of meat products But rising fuel, labor and material costs had forced the company to discontinue the service, a move that could result in up to a a hundredweight depres- sion on the price the livestock producer receives on export products.

Compressed work week for firemen EDMONTON (CP) Wage increases of up to 23.5 per cent and introduction of a four- platoon system are included in a two-year contract announc- ed yesterday for the city's 660 firemen. A statement issued by Mayor Ivor Dent and Merl Schnee, president of the Ed- monton Local of the Inter- national Association of Firefighters, said that under the new system, firemen will work an average of 42 hours a week compared with the pre- sent 40 hours. The firemen will vote in about a year if they wish to continue or revert to the present 31-year- old system of having three platoons at fire stations In an application of the com- pressed work week, there will be two shifts of 10 hours each during the daytime and 14 hours at night instead of three eight-hour shifts daily With the pay increase and the higher pay of the four pla- toon system effective Dec. 9, first-class firemen now earn- ing a year will move up to STILL SURVIVES The earliest species of tree still surviving is the maiden- hair tree of China, which first appeared 160 million years ago. U.S. wheat may be emptied United States' reserve of wheat, even with a record crop this year, might be eliminated by rising export demand, the agriculture department said Wednesday. Export orders also are con- tinuing to drain off reserves of corn and soybeans, com- modities essential for more livestock production in 1974 Although some of the figures used by the depart- ment are in apparent dis- agreement, their main thrust is toward another record ex- port season for U.S. farm goods, and more competition, in the market for consumers already facing the highest retail food prices in U.S. history. In a report issued by the out- look and situation board, wheat exports for the fiscal year ending next June 30 about the time the 1974 crop is ready, will be 1.15 billion bushels, an increase of 50 million from an estimate one month ago.
