Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, September 8, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HBIAID 3 Subsidized ceiling on wheat bread will be increased to a bushel Howcum? Mrs. Henry Wyszinski quizzickly displays a letter of disbelief from an Ankara, Turkey, resident querying how a Hydro-bill mailed by the Wyszinskis in Montreal found its way to Turkey. Ottawa, Washington faulted for delay OTTAWA (CP) Faulting Washington and Ottawa for de- laying application of Great Lakes anti-pollution rules, the Intei-national Joint Commission says the United States must spend more to meet Canada- U.S. water quality objectives established by treaty last year. The two-country commission released its findings Friday in its first report on progress un- der the Great Lakes water qual- ity agreement signed by Presi- dent Nixon and Prime Minister Trudeau in April, 1972. The report says that "It ap- pears to the commission that further degradation of water quality in the Great Lakes now may have been slowed down in some respects." But it adds that not enough information is available yet to measure improvement pre- cisely. WINNIPEG (CP) The sub- j sidized price ceiling for bread wheat sold to Canadian millers under legislation to be placed before the Commons will be a bushel instead of as pre- viously announced, Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Ca- nadian wheat board confirmed Friday. With a floor price remaining at the effect of the in- I crease will be to the con-1 sumer subsidy to a bushel j from Ottawa reports indicated ear- lier the government was consid- ering the 50-cent increase. There had been some criticism that the ceiling was too low because export prices for top-grade milling wheat now are about a bushel. The aim of the subsidy is to stabilize the price to Canadian millers and thus to consumers, while farmers benefit from high international price levels. Mr. Lang told a news confer- ence Friday the original ceiling was substantial and could be defended, but was raised in consideration of cur- rent high world prices after low returns received by farmers in rcent years. CALLS CEILING ADEQUATE. The S5 ceiling, he said, was adequate and noted that farm- ers are protected from any fu- ture world price drops below in the program, which is to last for seven years. You can't have a floor on the downturns and no ceiling on the he said. He added that the consumer subsidy will be paid to the I wheat board for addition to its wheat pool so that eventually it I will be returned to wheat pro- ducers only. Previously the subsidy was distributed to all registered j grain growers in the form of i acreage payments. M r. Lang i said he feels the change will help identify the payments as a" i genuine consumer subsidy on wheat. i Asked about requests by I Prairie agriculture ministers meeting in Regina Friday that the price levels be written into legislation instead of orders-in- council that could be changed by future governments, M r. Lang replied: obligations to cut municipal "My own feeling is that we waste flows into the lakes under j should put the treasury support world market, Mr. Lang said the long-term plan is a floor but the wheat board will begin selling domestically at a bushel with a con- sumer subsidy. Export durum prices Friday were around Mr. Lang said the govern- ment will press on with its new interim feed-grains policy next month despite strong opposition from the governments of Mani- toba and Saskatchewan, who say it is helping Eastern cattle- men at the expense of Prairie producers. The wheat board will sell grain in Eastern Canada and British Columbia at prices equal to what are calculated to be the going "off-board" prices on the Prairies, that is, the price at which grains are mov- ing from growers to Prairie livestock producers or feed mills outside the board. The minister said no account will be taken of prices set by the Manitoba Feed Grains Mar- keting Commission, which has claimed control over off-board sales in the province. He indicated he is not con- cerned about any legal chal- lenges from the Manitoba com- mission.

Judge Seals said CDC had the million worth of Texasgulf clash between govern- stock. The nients and multinational corpo- rations boils down to a question of accountability, and the Cana- dian government is trying to do something about it in one in- stance by seeking a controlling position in the Texasgulf deci- sion-making process. Texasgulf generates 68 per t cent of its operating income in Canada, and that money can be used to develop rich interests elsewhere.
