Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, September 5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-13 Trudeau's Paris Tent city e visit stirs Dwarfed by the mathematics and computer building are 13 tents erected on the campus of the University of Waterloo to draw attention to the shortage of housing for students. The protest is being held at University of Guelph also. Whelan rebuked in egg battle OTTAWA (CP) Con- sumer Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet sided with Beryl Plumptre Wednesday in her egg-price battle with Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan. The recently-appointed con- sumer affairs minister took the unusual step of publicly rebuking a fellow cabinet member after Mr. Whelan and Mrs. Plumptre, chairman of the food prices review board, clashed over federal egg pric- ing and marketing policies. Mr. Ouellet, who took over the consumer portfolio about a month ago, issued a prepared statement endorsing demands by Mrs. Plumptre for consumer representatives on egg marketing agencies. He said he "regrets the na- ture" of Mr. Whelan's attack on Mrs Plumptre in a speech last week. He then described Mr. Whe- lan as "my friend and col- league" and said he plans to meet him for discussions on the food board's latest report on egg prices. Mrs. Plumptre and Mr. Whelan exchanged criticisms in separate speeches during the last two weeks to Cana- dian National Exhibition directors in Toronto. Mrs. Plumptre described the egg marketing system as a mess and accused Mr. Whelan of rescuing the federal marketing agency from a million deficit. She charged that marketing practices have produced huge egg surpluses and kept prices unjustifiably high. Mr. Whelan said Mrs. Plumptre did not know what she was talking about. "She has a lot to learn about the egg he said, "...she bet- ter get her facts straight." The minister said the federal government has not subsidized the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency Mrs. Plumptre's board issued its second report on eggs in Quebec last week ac- cusing the federal and provin- cial governments of allowing marketing agencies to mis- manage the industry. The review board recom- mended among other things that marketing agencies have some members who are not egg producers. Mr. Ouellet said the Plumptre board was set up to analyze food price trends and make recommendations on ways to curb prices. "They were set up to offer constructive criticism to gov- ernment and to producer and industry he said. "They were not intended to pull their punches and their latest egg report appears to be a good example of their thorough research and constructive criticism." Mr. Ouellet said he intended to take the board recommendations seriously "and I will urge my colleagues to do likewise." He said egg producers, con- sumers and processors are distressed "and 1 think the board has done a service to us all by bringing this matter to the public's attention." PROTEIN SHORTAGE He said it was evident that the present marketing system, now being reorganiz- ed by Mr. Whelan and his provincial government counterparts, does not work properly. Millions of eggs are being destroyed in Canada despite world shortages of high protein food, he said. Mr. Ouellet said he will urge Mr. Whelan to make the iederal egg marketing agency "more efficient and more directly responsible to the public for its operations." He also will urge action to reduce the price of table eggs to the Canadian consumer and ask cabinet support for proposals to put consumer represen- tatives on marketing boards.

Quebec sources in Paris speculated Wednesday that the pre- mier will postpone his visit for a month or two. "Mr. Bourassa is still scheduled to come, but I don't think France has yet fixed the said a member of the Quebec delegation in Paris. "He probably will not come here ahead of Mr. Trudeau. So that eliminates the end of September. I would expect the visit to be towards the end of November." In Quebec City, a spokesman for the premier's office said his trip still was planned for some time this fall. "All the Quebec preparations are practically ready, and our concerns are not necessarily those of the prime minister of Canada." the spokesman said. Trudeau's visit would be the first official visit by a Canadian prime minister to France since 1967 when an incident involving the late President Charles de Gaulle practically resulted in ai severing of relations between France and Canada. In Montreal to visit Expo "67. President de Gaulle shouted: "Vive le Quebec libre" to an enthusiastic crowd outside of Montreal City Hall. The expression "long live a free Quebec" was popular at the time among those advocating Quebec's separation from the remainder of Canada and its establishment as an independent state. The Canadian embassy has declined to say anything about Trudeau's visit, insisting that it is the French government which will announce any details since it is the one which issued the invitation. However, there is more and more talk that the visit will be during the week of Oct. 20. ON ALL COLOUR PHOTOFIIMISHING Days of huge U.S. food handouts over by WASHINGTON (AP> Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz and other food experts indicated Wednesday that the days of huge United States food programs overseas are over and poor countries must do more to feed themselves. "We cannot afford to feed the world, nor should we." Butz said at a meeting prepar- ing for a world food conference in Rome in November. The secretary said Americans "have made a commitment not to let anyone starve." which would be up- held. But there was no way in the- face of expanding world populations and domestic budgetary pressures that the United States would be able to run an international welfare program without end. Poor countries must increase their own agricultural production, he said. Butz criticized many of the poor nations for not taking the necessary, albeit painful, political decisions that would raise food production. He said the "cheap food pol- icy" followed by many coun- tries will !ead to disaster be- cause it penalizes farmers by not paying them adequately. All countries should copy the United States' free market system which provides finan- cial incentives to individual farmers to increase produc- tion. Butz also called on the less developed countries to develop a realistic reserve system rather than depend on the U.S. to expand its surplus food supplies. Hoffa request turned down WASHINGTON A federal judge has rejected James Hoffa's request that he be allowed to campaign for union office in Detroit while Mic former Teamsters union president appeals terms of the executive clemency which freed him from prison. Under the clemency order signed by former president Richard Nixon in December, 197L Hoffa's 13-year prison sentence for jury tampering and mail fraud was commuted to years and he was releas- ed from prison on the condi- tion that he not engage in un- ion activities until 1380. Tfctl condition was upheld July 19 in a decision by Pratt. month. Hoffa's lawyers fried an appeal against the decision.
