Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta October 29, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 Bogus bills seized Fertilizer boycott suggested OTTAWA Agriculture Minister Whelan has suggested a boycott on the use of fertilizer for golf courses and family gardens to help hungry nations get the supplies they need to grow crops. He told the Rotary Club here Monday that Canadians should help sup- port Rome-based Food and Agriculture Organization (PAO) efforts to buy fer- tilizer needed by Asian, African and Latin American countries. The FAO has already col- million to buy fertilizer, Mr. Whelan said. But it estimates a need for more than billion "to do the complete job of providing just the minimum amount of fer- tilizer needed in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Africa and some Latin American countries." Cash would do more good than a boycott of fertilizer used on golf courses and gardens, Mr. Whelan said. "But that (a boycott) would be a help too, ex- pecially if we sent the cash we save to the FAO in Rome." Trudeau meets hostile reception OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau met a hostile reaction Monday when he reported to the Commons on his just-concluded trip to France and Belgium. "All we got today was a bag of said Opposition Leader Robert Stanf ield at the conclusion of an acid statement. He and T. C. Douglas Nanaimo-Cowichan- The Islands) strongly criticiz- ed the prime minister for not clarifying what he really sought in talks with leaders of the European Economic Com- munity. The prime minister said in his statement that Canada seeks "ways of engaging the community in a dynamic, co- operative enterprise." "We wish to add a new, yet parallel dimension to the ex- panding links we are already building with our partners among the nine members states. Mr. Stanfield started by congratulating the prime minister for giving the im- pression of being on a working trip. He said there were no ban- nisters and bobsleds on this has to be progress in itself." He was referring to some actions of the prime minister in past foreign as sliding down bannisters in London. He said the government after waiting for years to seek an arrangement with the economic community made an unfortunate presentation that was not up to scratch and showed the government had not done its homework. For years the Liberal government had neglected the economic community, creating the impression that it was not really interested in its affairs. Then it had made a poor presentation. There was confusion about what the prime minister hoped to get from the com- munity and that confusion was not cleared up by the prime minister's statement. Mr. Stanfield called on the government to table the aide memoir it sent to the commu- nity some time ago. Mr. Douglas and Mr. Stan- field both praised the prog- ress made in France-Canada relations on the prime minister's trip. Mr. Douglas said the prime minister talked of trade and the development of Canadian natural resources. He said Mr. Trudeau's re- marks appeared to be an open invitation to use resources as bait to enlarge trading and. at- tract investment. Canada had followed that dangerous path with the United States. Canada's resources must not be put up for auction for multinational corporations either in the U.S. or Europe. Mr. Douglas said in these days of global inflation he sup- ports any discussions with other government leaders. He said he hopes Mr. Trudeau will be more zealous in pursuing the talks with the European community than he has tn the past. Later Mr. Trudeau told Mr. Stanfield he has no objection to releasing copies of the aide memoir but he would check first with officials to make sure it would not damage negotiations. The prime minister also said, in response to another Stanfield question, that Canada is willing to sell raw resources but sales must be made within the restraints of established policies. Mr. Trudeau delivered a seven-page report to the Com- mons. He said men are engaged in creating a new Europe whose potential, size and strength can only be conjectured.

Meat may be unsafe By PETER MICHAELSON OTTAWA (CP) People can safely eat billions of -the type of harmless food-spoilage bacteria usually found in ground beef, but the meat may not be safe, even after cdoking, if it contains .high levels of staphylococcus bacteria, a National 'Re- search Council scientist said Monday. However, there does not ap- pear to be any ground beef produced domestically with high enough levels of staphylococcus bacteria to concern the public, says Dr. David Clark, an NRC microbiologist and secretary treasurer of the United Nations international com- Quebec tops list of gov't handouts OTTAWA (CP) Quebec is getting more than 2% times what Ontario is allocated un- der the Local Initiatives Program (LIP) this year, the Commons learned Monday. A written reply to Gerard Laprise said million has been allocated to Quebec under the LIP program in fiscal 1974-75. The reply was compiled by the manpower department. Ontario, which got the next- largest allocation, is receiving million. The total amount allocated to the LIP program is The program provides funds for groups with ideas for doing community work. British Columbia gets million, Newfoundland million, New Brunswick million, Nova Scotia million and the rest .of the provinces and territories less than million each. The breakdown for other ju- risdictions: Alberta mil- lion; Saskatchewan million; Manitoba million; Prince Edward Island the Northwest Territories and the Yukon Manpower Minister Robert Andras has said areas with high unemployment receive high priority for the grants. Infant drug recalled OTTAWA (CP) About 400 one-quart cans of an infant drug produced by the Mead Johnson and Co. plant in Belleville, Ont, have been recalled from Canadian hospitals, a company spokesman said Monday. The Lytren Oral Electolyte recalled as a safety precau- tion following a general recall of the product last week by the U.S. Pood and Drug Ad- ministration, the spokesman said. The 400 quarts were made at the same tune as other lots of the identical drug made at the Belleville plant and destined for the U.S. market, he said. The U.S agency said bacteria found in the solution was a threat to life. mission on microbiological specifications for food. While most staphylococcus bacteria are harmless to hu- mans, a small percentage of them produce toxins which are not destroyed by cooking and can cause food poisoning, said Dr. Clark, who is study- ing ways to control bacterial growth in the storage and handling of fresh beef. Common staphylococcus bacteria, usually present, on human skin, and coliform bac- teria, from animal or human excrement, can be expected to be found in ground beef, Dr. Clark said in an interview. Only perfect handling by meat processors and rigorous sanitation procedures could keep those bacteria at bay. This situation is not dan- gerous because it takes high levels of staphyloccus bacteria to produce the harm- ful toxins and because coliform bacteria are readily killed by cooking, he said. He was commenting on the controversy following a CBC television show last week which disclosed that ground beef sold in the Toronto- Kitchener-Hamilton area con- tained staphylococcus and conform bacteria, as well as high levels of food-spoilage bacteria. A health department spokesman said Monday that a report will be released this week disclosing the specific duties of 30 full-time meat inspectors who have just been assigned to clamp down on the sale of the allegedly con- taminated ground beef. Dr. Clark said he would pre- fer to eat ground beef with a one million total bacterial count per gram than meat with a zero bacterial count This was because the natu- rally-occurring food-spoilage bacteria thrive in meat and tend to crowd out unnaturally- occurring bacteria which might be harmful to health. tot-rue Carta Sets an mm Bin OUR-MGH SfffD, ROU fCD WSHKSS FORMS MESS IS AT TOUR IM UTHitlDGE 3rd DRAW Olympic Lottery Canada MISSION MILLIONS POSSIBLE Televised live from the Great Hall, Hamilton Place, Hamilton, Ontario on the C T V (English) and T V A (French) Networks NOVEMBER 18, 1974 P.M.
