The ombudsman is an officer of the Legislature.

The four-member com- mittee said the government should make certain free com- petition is allowed in marketing and pricing The government was advised to intervene only when free com- petition isn't possible.

Slowness charge hurled EDMONTON (CP) Bill Broad, president of the Alberta Civil Service Association, has charged that up to association members have been denied just treatment by the Provin- cial Human Rights Com- mission. In a prepared statement, Mr. Broad said bureaucratic slowness had impeded investigations of at least five complaints filed by the association: On Jan. 30 the association said women classified as in- stitutional workers were do- ing essentially the same work as men classified as caretakers, but receiving less pay; It claimed June 12 that women institutional workers were doing the same job as male cleaning porters for less pay. On July 17 a complaint was filed saying women cer- tified nursing aides were do- ing the same work as male certified nursing orderlies, but receiving less pay; It said Aug. 31 that some female institutional aides were being paid less than male institutional aides; The associution charged Sept. 25 that certain associa- tion members reclassified from male caretakers to light duty caretakers were higher paid than some of the reclassified women. CHARGES DENIED The charges were promptly denied by Keith Renders, director of the Human Rights Commission. "The cases are being looked at with all possible haste. They're not sitting on anyone's he said in an interview. Mr. Menders said some complaints, such as the se- cond one, take time to investigate "because of sheer volume." Regarding the dis- crepancy in wages of nursing aides and orderlies, he said the commission is working with administrators of the city-owned Royal Alexandra Hospital to determine how the problem is being handled. Wednesday, October 31, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-3 Lethbridge MP's motion applauded Farm internship idea urged KEN HURLBURT Wheat sale OTTAWA (CP) Sale of 22 million bushels of wheat to Brazil for about million was announced by Justice Minister Otto Lang. He said the sale was negotiated by the Canadian Wheat Board under federally guaranteed short term credit and covers No. 2 Canada western red spring wheat to be shipped from Atlantic and St. Lawrence ports from February to September next vear. By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Scrappy Alberta MP Ken Hurlburt told the House of Commons Tues- day that federal academics who formulate government agricultural policies should be forced "back to the land" every few years to ensure they don't lose touch with the realities of day to day far- ming. Mr. Hurlburt bridge) put his demand to the Commons in -the fuun of a resolution based on "urgent and pressing necessity" claiming that farming problems are being aggravated because Ottawa's farming policies are often thought up by "faceless public servants" far removed from the land. His motion suggested that every seven years or so the public servants involved should be forced to spend one or two years on a farm, ranch of feedlot to re-accustom them with everyday farm problems Mr. Hurlburt's motion was greeted with deskthumping applause from both Progressive Conservative and New Democratic Party Op- position of the rare instances since the 1972 federal election when NDP members have cheered a Conservative MP. However, the motion failed to get unanimous Commons consent when some Liberal members shouted the more or less automatic "no" to the special motion. Nevertheless, Mr. Hurlburt had made his point and sat back down in his seat with a wide smile on his face. The motion, seconded by Gordon Towers Deer, Alta.) claimed that "distress, disruption and con- fusion" has been caused to the Canadian grain farmer and cattleman by federal govern- ment policies devised and im- plemented by academics with no practical experience on the land. "I therefore move that the federal government institute an internship program whereby academics who are devising and setting agricultural policy be re- quired to spend at least two years on the farm, ranch or feedlot every seven years so as not to lose touch with the practical problems of farming and new developments in the agricultural he proposed to the Commons. Even after its defeat, Con- servative and socialist MPs continued to applaud Mr. Hurlburt and shout support for the idea across the floor to the Liberal benches. Many Liberal benches MPs chuckl- ed over the incident and a few returned the deskthumping applause. Outside the Common1; chamber the Alberta MP sax) he was quite serious about the internship concept and said he was sure farmers cost-to- coast across Canada would support his contention that federal public servants are often out of touch with the realities of day to day far- ming.
