Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, September 3, 1971 _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 9 Good price far apples needed Okanagan fruit industry in trouble PENTICTON, B.C. (CP) An executive member of the British Columbia Fruit Growers Association said here the Okanagan's fruit industry "is teetering and will be finished unless growers get a good price for apples this year." Val Pearson said the BCFGA executive met wilh and delivered a brief to agriculture minister Cyril and an emergency meeting of joint district councils was called by the association's president Allan Claridge. The meeting, to be held at the Penticton Peach Bowl Sept. 13 will discuss the formation of a union within the framework of the association as well as setting a minimum price for apples and d'Anjou pears. Mr. Pearson said the industry has suffered losses this year because it was to compete with low prices on a large Washington cherry crop and the same now is happening with Bartlett pears from California, Oregon and Washington. He was critical of the government for "tinning a deaf ear" on the plight of B.C fruit growers. The fruit growers are non reciprocal trade arrangements made by Ottawa which allow countries like Australia and New Zealand to into Canada, while Canadian growers are denied access to these markets. They also feel Ottawa has ignored them by allowing the dumping of U.S. surplus fruit into Canada at the critical time when B.C. fruit is hitting the market. Mr. Pearson said the formation of a union would strengthen the growers' hand in demonstrating against imported fruit. If the growers had a union last spring, he said, they might have been able to tie up a sbip coming in with apples from Australia reserves OTTAWA (CP) Canada's foreign exchange reserves rose to a record billion at the end of August, with a sharp increase in official holdings ot U.S. dollars, the finance department reported today. U.S. dollar holdings rose to billion from billion at the end of July, when total reserves were 54.92 billion. There was a drop in Canada's reserve position in the Inlcrnalional Monetary Fund to 1 million from million at the end of July. Holdings of gold other .foreiim currencies, and IMF special drawing rights remnincd unchanged at the end of August. The finance department does not report its day-to-day foreign exchange dealings, but it was believed that Ihe rise in U..S. dollarholdings and drop in the IMF reserve position resulted from a large British rtimb Group of Ten, Canada provides money urwer the IMF's "gen-piv.i arrangements to borrow" which other countries can tap when in balance of payments difficulties.
